With the 176th pick in the draft, the
select, 2B Joe "the Flash" Gordon.
54.0 WAR (202nd all time)
22.4 dWAR (23rd all time, 2nd amongst 2nd basemen)
.971 career fielding %
5x World Series Champion
Joe Gordon had a short career that was ended much too soon by injury. As one of the core members of the Yankee dynasty, Gordon won 4 World series with the Yankees, and one with the Indians. Gordon's numbers stack up offensively with just about every hall of fame second baseman in history, and I can safely say that had the gold glove existed at the time, Gordon would have racked in at least 6 of them, maybe more. With a great glove, a penchant for winning, and some power, Gordon will fit in nicely in between Jimmie Foxx and Alan Trammell. The addition of Gordon now gives the Astros perhaps the most dynamic defensive infield in history, with an lineup of Robinson-Trammell-Gordon-Foxx.
