Part of the reason I traded down - after getting Clemens (who, for my money is one of the best pitchers of all time, see more in my bio ), I didn't really need another pitcher.

I wouldn't have needed a second pitcher but if the opportunity to have Johnson-Pedro at the top of the rotation with Wagner already at short I would have been sitting pretty.

I'm still mad at you for taking the Big Unit. He's the one pitcher I would have held my ground for.

Papershoes and I always seem to be on the same wavelength in this draft. If I picked where he did I would have taken the same 2 players.

With the 40th pick, the St. Louis Browns are pleased to select

SS Cal Ripken, Jr

He was one of the best defensive shortstops ever, and also had plenty of pop. He also almost never missed a game.

First of all, the management of the St. Louis Browns has just found out about a draft party being held at Sportsman's Park (guarantee you only one of y'all will get this, and I know which one), and would like to thank their fans watching back at home.

Now without further ado, we are pleased to select 2B Eddie Collins.

One of the best 2B in history, Collins has the remarkable slash line of .333/.424/.429. He also was a prolific base-stealer and was known for his defensive acumen. Paired with Cal Ripken, we believe that this combo will help lead the Browns to glory.

I'm also looking to move up in the 4th round in exchange for dropping down in the 5th.

Great pick. He was going to be my next pick and I was agonizing over the fact he was still on the board. By far the highest career WAR value out of any of the remaining players too.

Yeah, I wanted Ripken for sure, and then I wasn't sure if I wanted to go MI again, but his value was too good to miss.

Whoa... so many options don't know what to do lol.

Toronto Blue Jays select:

Ken Griffey Jr.

Perhaps the biggest star of the 1990s, was destined to greatness as the son of a major league player. He was the first pick in the 1987 draft, arrived in the majors for good at age 19 on April 3, 1989 and hit 633 career home runs, fifth on the all-time list at the time of his retirement. He's credited with saving a flagging franchise in Seattle before taking his talents back to his hometown of Cincinnati. Griffey hit 56 home runs each in 1997 and 1998, and won 10 consecutive Gold Gloves. He seemed destined to break all the home run records, but injuries marked much of his stint with the Reds. He finished with a .284 career average.

Yeah, I've got Griffey ranked as being the third-best centre fielder ever all the way down down to seventh. Injuries and the period in which he played, a tremendously offensive era in which PED use was rampant - although it bears noting that Junior was never once linked to them and has always been viewed as a completely natural talent - make evaluating his career a tad less definitive than would otherwise be the case.

He was certainly the best player of the 1990s along with Bonds though, without hesitation. Prodigious power and plate discipline, excellent contact hitter, and enough range to transverse the Serengetti alone. Just a remarkable talent in every respect. I've always considered his 1997 and 1998 seasons to be arguably both top five ever from a centre-fielder. They are Mantle-esque in their brilliance offensively and Junior was only exceeded by Mays defensively at his position.

exactly.... there is no disputing his skill level and work ethic.

injuries shouldn't play a big factor in this draft; for obvious reasons.

I think injuries have to matter when voting on regular season standings.

Injuries depend on the individual voter. It's up to the voter what factor is important.

If injuries don't matter, I'm drafting John Paciorek.

Your post compelled me to look him up on Wikipedia and Baseball-Reference. What a random, obscure player. He should have been the stand-in for Moonlight Graham in Field of Dreams.

1 career game, 5 plate appearances, 3 singles, 2 walks, and 4 runs scored as an eighteen year-old. Never played again.

I'm pretty sure he was featured in a Sports Illustrated a few months ago.
