Only player in MLB history to blow game 7 of the world series with an error. Needless to say I harbor some resentment.

You can fill out your roster however you like with the number of relievers and bench players.

Ideally one of your 6 starters have relief experience. Using a pure starter in a relief role is frowned upon by some.

With the 385th overall pick in the 2013 HFBoards All-Time Draft the Montreal Expos are pleased to select, from Pottsdown High School, a native of Pottsdown, Pennsylvania, SP/RP Bobby Shantz.



One of the forerunners of the modern long-man/spot starter, the left-handed Shantz enjoyed a long sixteen season major league career spent primarily with the Athletics organization. Originally a starter, Shantz won the 1952 AL MVP Award with the Philadelphia Athletics after winning 24 games and completing 27 with 5 shutouts. He was later converted to a spot starter and long reliever due to stresses on his arm and made the transition eventually, albeit with some initial difficulty.

With the Yankees in his first season he would lead the American League in ERA at 2.48, starting 21 games again, but coming out of the bullpen to save an addition five. It would also be the first of six consecutive Gold Glove Awards (out of eight total) for the diminutive 5'6 Pennsylvanian. Extremely athletic despite his small size, with excellent quickness, Shantz was one of the best-fielding pitchers of all-time, and it is a testament to his athleticism on the mound that he continued to win Gold Gloves despite being primarily a relief pitcher between 1958 and 1964.

From his first season in New York in 1957 until the end of his career seven years later, Shantz would start 47 games and appear in relief in 270 others, winning 50, lossing 34, and posting a 2.74 ERA. His adjusted ERA over that time was 135, he saved 37 games, and averaged a little over 2 innings per appearance. During a period in baseball with there were relatively few strikeouts, his 5.9 K/9 IP also make him look like a fireballer in adjusted terms. He retired at age 38 as a former MVP, three-time All-Star Game selection, eight-time Gold Glove Award winner (including his final campaign), and World Series champion.

*119-99 career record
*48 career saves
*3.38 career ERA
*119 career adjusted ERA
*1952 AL wins leader
*1952 AL WAR leader
*1952 AL MVP Award
*1952 AL TSN Pitcher of the Year
*1957 AL ERA champion
*1958 World Series champion
*3-time All-Star Game selection
*8-time Gold Glove Award winner
*30.0 total career wins above replacement

Brooklyn selects early-century power-hitter Clifford Carlton "Cactus Gavvy" Cravath, OF.



Cravath was king of the longball before Babe Ruth took over. He led the league in home runs six times, and either atop or close to the lead in various other offensive categories during his run with the Phillies.

He'll add some power off our bench.

Cleveland Indians select


Catcher Jim Sundberg

6 consecutive gold gloves (1976-81)
1985 World Series Champion
25.0 Defensive WAR (16th all time)
3 time caught stealing leader (12 times top 5)



Jim Sundberg is to put it mildly, one of the best defensive catchers of all time. At his best he was also a competent batsmen, but that is not why he is on the team. Cochrane will obviously be handling the bulk of the catching duties, but Sundberg will be able to give him rest and take over at the end of close games when defensive play will be at a premium.

Sorry for the delay, everyone. Newark selects SS Phil Rizzuto



5x All-Star
7x World Champion
1950 AL MVP

Scooter, who was elected to the Hall of Fame in 1994, is generally considered to be one of the two or three greatest defensive shortstops of all-time, and almost certainly the greatest bunter. A classic small-ball player, he'll be an invaluable tool off the bench.

To get a sense of how valuable Rizzuto was to the Yankees, just read some quotes from his contemporaries:

"My best pitch is anything the batter grounds, lines or pops in the direction of Rizzuto." - [A star pitcher who hasn't been drafted yet.]

"Rizzuto was the main difference between the Yankees and Red Sox. If we had Rizzuto in Boston we would have won all those pennants instead of the Yankees." - Ted Williams

"Phil Rizzuto and Stan Musial were two of the few modern players who could hold their own among the old-timers." -Ty Cobb

"Rizzuto is the greatest shortstop I have ever seen in my entire baseball career, and I have watched some beauties." - Casey Stengel

"People loved watching me play baseball. Scooter, they just loved." -Joe Dimaggio
