That pick was made for me basically. I was targeting Hornsby, Wagner, Musial or Speaker and only Speaker was left.

If Young went I had another player in mind to replace him too, I hope he lasts to my next pick.

I was hopeful he'd fall to me, but I doubted that he would

Time to add a defensive wiz with huge power. The best third baseman of all-time:

Mike Schmidt

Nice pick. I'm a big Schmidt guy as I have him ranked 15th overall. People forget how athletic he was, he was one stolen base away from being 30/30 and arguably the greatest defender at his position ever (and he could hit a little bit too)

I almost took Schmidt, but there's a bunch of picks between my next one and I needed an ace.

That was my logic as well. Have to nab a staff leader before focusing again on positional talents.

At the same time you can't argue with the positional value. 3rd isn't exactly deep, having Schmidt will be huge.

Yeah Schmidt was my guy, and then I got excited because I thought Hank Aaron was not picked after 20 some rounds. Schmidt is probably in the top 20 players of all time.

to be fair, you wouldn't expect Aaron to go 2nd overall, I've certainly never seen him go that high. Easy to miss when somebody goes higher than expected.

It's hard to go wrong the first three rounds.

Reunited...and it feels so good.....

The Pittsburgh Crawfords are pleased to select, SP - Satchel Paige. Paige is rated by baseball historian/statisician supreme Bill James as the 2nd greatest pitcher ever after Walter Johnson. I would not go quite that far though I think he is certainly a top 10 pitcher all-time (I have him 5th).

As James points out:

"What you have in Satchel Paige is a great fastball, great control, a tremendous change, a great understanding of how to pitch, intelligence, determination, absolute composure and a 40 year career. Satchel deserves to rank with Cy Young, Lefty Grove and Walter Johnson as the guys that you talk about when you're trying to determine who was the greatest that ever lived." When it comes to Negro League players, I am not a huge fan of the superlative quotes by opposing Negro League players that make them out to be superhuman in nature. I am a fan however of major league equivalents.

In terms of his major league equivalents according to baseballthinkfactory.org (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Baseball_Think_Factory), Paige being a pitcher is a bit more difficult to extrapolate with but according to the same MLE's used for Josh Gibson, Paige rates out to be a 302 game winner with a career ERA+ of 126, right in the territory of Tom Seaver and xxx xxxxxx.

Paige also was an absolute workhorse with a rubber arm, taking the mound any chance he got and gives the Crawfords a tandem that played together for the real life Pittsburgh Crawfords in 1936 thereby creating a great synergy for the team.

Was hoping against hope that he did the impossible and fell to me at 56th (my next selection). Nap just might be the second-best second baseman of all-time after Rogers Hornsby.
