I was going to take him, but I decided I needed some power in my lineup, and when I couldn't find a suitable bat in the outfield I went to Mize. Definitely a good pick. I always hate it when I don't get Brett.

With our third round selection, Brooklyn is pleased to draft not only one of the greatest hitters of all time, but a prolific base stealer as well as a defensive specialist (10 Gold Gloves).



Ichiro Suzuki, RF

Quote:
"There's nobody like Ichiro in either leagueŚnow or ever. He exists strictly within his own world, playing a game 100 percent unfamiliar to everyone else. The game has known plenty of 'slap' hitters, but none who sacrifice so much natural ability for the sake of the art... Ichiro, a man of wondrous strength, puts on impressive power-hitting displays almost nightly in batting practice. And he'll go deep occasionally in games, looking very much like someone who could do it again, often... [but] the man lives for hits, little tiny ones, and the glory of standing atop the world in that category. Every spring, scouts or media types write him off, swearing that opposing pitchers have found the key, and they are embarrassingly wrong."[
> Compiled legendary career in Japan before even setting foot on an MLB diamond
> 2606 career hits (4th fastest to 2500)
> Holds record for most hits in one season (262)
> 2x AL batting champion
> AL MVP and ROTY in 2001 (one of only two to win both in the same year)
> .322 career batting average

Sorry for my lateness..... a little drunk... The White Sox select... Derek Jeter SS New York Yankees.

MOD EDIT: I think you jumped the gun here.

MOD EDIT x2: Disregard the fact that I'm a moron. Pick is valid.

KidLine's pick is fine, skipped picks are able to make their choice whenever they can.

I don't buy that "Ichiro could hit 40 home runs if he wanted to!" nonsense (if it's true that he elects to be a slap hitter instead of a power hitter purely out of choice, then he's the dumbest player in baseball history,) but that's still a fantastic pick.

Obviously you can't treat the MLB and the Japanese league as equivalent, but between the two Ichiro has almost 4,000 hits.

I really thought I would get him next round. I took Mize banking on the fact he was likely to go before Charleston. Great pick man.

With the fifty sixth overall pick in the 2013 HF Boards All-Time Draft the Montreal Expos are extremely pleased to select, from Gretna High School in Gretna, Louisiana, RF Melvin Thomas Ott.



Mel Ott was one of the premier power hitters of the first half of the twentieth century. The Lousiana-born right-fielder played twenty two major league seasons, all with the New York Giants, averaging 110 runs scored, 30 homers and 110 RBIs per year. At the time of his retirement he ranked second on the all-time home run list behind only Babe Ruth. His 511 career home runs still rank twenty third all-time and despite his small 5'9 frame he was known for his prodigious power, leading the Senior Circuit in home runs on six occasions and finishing runner-up another seven times.

Ott also led the league in wins above replacement twice (five times amongst position players) and was well-known for his plate discipline as well as his home run ability, finishing first in walks six times and in on-base percentage four times. His slash line of .304/.414/.533/.947 ranks amongst the best in league history and his OPS+ of 155 is twenty third on the all-time list. Despite playing much of his career in the cavernous Polo Grounds of New York City, Ott led the league in OPS+ five separate times. An eleven-time All-Star Game participant (four times selected as a starter) he also played in three World Series championships, winning the 1933 title for the Giants and batting .389 with two home runs as the Manhattanites took the title in five games over the Washington Senators.

*511 career home runs (23rd all-time)
*2876 hits
*11-time All-Star Game selection
*104.0 career wins above replacement (22nd all-time)
*.947 career OPS (23rd all-time)
*155 career OPS+ (23rd all-time)
*1933 World Series champion
*Career .901 post-season OPS
*2-time league leader in runs scored
*2-time league leader in OPS
*5-time league leader in OPS+
*6-time league leader in walks
*6-time league leader in home runs (11 top ten finishes, seven runner-up finishes)
*10-time league leader in at-bats per home run (18 top ten finishes, four runner-up finishes)

Milwaukee Braves are pleased to select first sacker Hank Greenberg



-Career slash line of .313/.412/.605
- 2 Time World Series Champion
- 2 Time AL Most Valuable Player (4 Times Top 5)
- 4 Times Led League in Homeruns (6 Times Top 5)
- 4 Times Led League in RBI (7 Times Top 5)
- Hit .318 in the Postseason for his career averaging nearly an RBI a game as well

"Although he missed time through injuries, military service, and early retirement, Greenberg still ranks as one of the most fearsome sluggers in baseball history. The powerful righthander played only the equivalent of nine-and-a-half seasons, yet produced outstanding career totals as well as exceptional season marks." - Fred Stein in The Baseball Library

Hammering Hank is a really good pick at this spot. Missed 4 prime years because of a war.
