You sick, twisted *******. Excellent pick (my next one in fact). 1930 AL MVP too, although unofficially as it was the year before the AP started doing the voting. Cronin was The Sporting News and AL Writer's MVP that year though (the early equivalents).

I feel weird making this pick...

Lance Berkman



6 times top 10 in MVP voting, 4 times top 5
World Series saving RBI 2011 World Series
Career 146 OPS+
Career .953 OPS

Berkman will be manning left field. While there are other players who can play better defence, Berkman is clearly the best offensive player available.

The forum won't let me spell his name correctly on the draft page, lol. Probably did the same thing to your post as well. All NHL-centric and whatnot

Excellent pick, one of the most underrated pitchers of all-time IMO.

Sabrehagen is one of those guys who you wonder what he could have accomplished if he didn't experience a career full of injuries and missed opportunities. Might have been good enough to challenge 300 wins even had he not had so many shoulder problems.

Still willing to swap picks 179 and 182 to move up if anyone's interested.

The Pittsburgh Crawfords are pleased to select HOF SS - Lou Boudreau. One of the great defensive shortstops of his generation, Lou was also no slouch with the bat especially during his magical MVP 1948 season as player/manager when he hit .355 and struck out a Ferris Bueller-esque 9 times in 152 games, en route to the championship. The Crawfords management also just thinks it's cool to have a middle infield of player/managers (with Frisch) who both won World Series titles while playing that dual role.

- BBHOF (1970)
- World Series Champion (1948)
- Last Player/Manager to win World Series
- 3 Times Top 5 in MVP voting (Won in 1948)
- 4 Times Top 5 in Overall WAR (inc. pitchers) (Led League 2 Times)
- 3 Times Top 5 in OBP%
- Led League in Fielding % 8 Times
- Led League in Range Factor 2 Times
- Ranked 12th best SS ever by Bill James

Cronin and Boudreau were both going to be one of my two next picks. I figured that I'd have one hell of a time deciding between the two. It looks like the choice was made for me, however... neither. The player-manager thing is very cool though.

With the 176th pick in the draft, the Houston Astros select, 2B Joe "the Flash" Gordon.



.268 BA
253 HR
975 RBIs
54.0 WAR (202nd all time)
22.4 dWAR (23rd all time, 2nd amongst 2nd basemen)
.971 career fielding %
1x MVP
9x All-Star
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.
