Kaline is a great pick. It's nice to see him finally get a bump into the top 100 where he belongs. I never understood the drastic separation between him and Clemente.

I was going to select Kaline for my bench if he didn't get picked in the next round. Laboured between him and Yaz as well. Incredible career value and consistency, both traits that one should admire in a player.

Clemente has the lore behind him. That's basically the reason.

Not as big as some of you thought.


3B Paul Molitor



Hall of Famer: Class of 2004
1993 World Series MVP
1.050 Career OPS in playoffs
4 times top 10 in OPS
5 times top 5 in Runs Created, 29th all time career runs created
3 time hits leader
9th all time in career hits

Many do not think of Molitor as 3rd baseman, but he played more third than any other position on the field. That is more career innings at third than Home Run Baker for example, and he was good at it too. 6 times at third base he rated top 5 at the position in range factor per game.

And more games at DH than any position on the field

Definitely could rake though.

Baseball reference has Baker's career games at 3B at 1548 vs 791 for Molitor.

I see my mistake. I was looking at games not innings for Baker

Thinking more about it now there is probably more of a drop off after Molitor than there is after Baker. He was an outstanding, balanced, offensive player especially in the postseason.

Seems logical that since every team makes the playoffs in this format, the Pittsburgh Crawfords select Mr. October, OF - Reggie Jackson. Reggie gives the Crawfords left handed protection for Josh Gibson as well as providing light tower power, one of the most legendary postseason players in MLB history is a welcome addition.



- Elected to BBHOF (1993)

- 4 time World Series Champion

- 5 Times Top 5 in MVP Voting (Won in 1973)

- 11 Times Top 5 in Homeruns (Led League 4 Times)

- 6 Times Top 5 in OPS (Led League 2 Times)

- 5 Times Top 5 in Runs Scored (Led League 2 Times)

- 1.212 career OPS in World Series play...1.212

Can't believe Reggie lasted so long.

His performance in Naked Gun is legendary.

Gotta remember to PM people..

The Chicago White Stockings take a guy I really love reading about. I learned about this guy in my first draft and was really interested in him ever since. Really pleased to add the very well balanced all-around talent that is SS - Arky Vaughan.

Arky is a great pick. Didn't have as long of a career as others, but he had a really good career and a nice peak. His WAR per 100 games is up there with some of the greats.

With the ninety sixth overall pick in the 2013 HF Boards All-Time Draft the Montreal Expos are pleased to select, from Compton High School, a native of Los Angeles, California, CF Duke Snider.



One of the greatest centre-fielders of all-time and also one of the most perennially overlooked, Edwin Donald Snider was a star performer during the heyday of all-world centre-fielders in New York City during the 1950s. Along with civic counter-parts Willie Mays of the Giants and Mickey Mantle of the Yankees, Snider compiled a relatively unheralded Hall of Fame career that ranks amongst the very best at his position. The Silver Fox, as he was known, due to his premature greying hair, agility, speed, and defensive prowess in the outfield, was an outstanding offensive performer. He led the entire decade of the 1950s in homeruns and RBIs by any player, while also compiling five consecutive 40 homer/100 RBI seasons from 1953-1957. Twice he led the league in OPS and his career adjusted OPS of 140 ranks amongst the very best ever at his position, as do his 407 career longballs, showcasing his prodigious power.

Snider ranks as one of the most accomplished post-season players in history as well. At the time of his retirement in 1964 he was the all-time leader in career World Series homers with 11, recording 38 hits and a .945 OPS in 36 World Series games. He ultimately led his beloved Dodgers to six World Series appearances, including a pair of championships in 1955 against the vaunted cross-town rival Yankees, and in 1959 against an upstart Chicago White Sox club in the team's second season in California after moving from Brooklyn the previous year. According to the JAWS formula, The Silver Fox ranks as the seventh greatest centre-fielder of all-time. The six in front of him? Willie Mays, Ty Cobb, Tris Speaker, Mickey Mantle, Ken Griffey Jr., and Joe DiMaggio.

*.295/.380/.540/.920 career slash line
*407 career home runs (6th amongst centre-fielders)
*140 career adjusted OPS
*2-time league leader in OPS
*3-time top five finishes in MVP voting
*8-time MLB All-Star Game selection
*5 consecutive 40 HR / 100 RBI seasons
*1955 National League RBI leader
*1955 Major League Player of the Year Award
*1956 National League Home Run Champion
*63.1 career wins above replacement (league leader in 1956)
*11 career World Series home runs (all-time leader upon retirement)
*Rated as seventh greatest centre-fielder of all-time according to JAWS

Thought I could grab pudge later, great pick. Same with Snyder. That said, thrilled that my guy I really wanted to move up and grab is still available. The Cougars are thrilled to add Mr. Padre to go along with Mr. Cub, RF - Tony Gwynn

With the 99th pick in the draft, the Houston Astros select CF Kirby Puckett


.318 Batting Average
2,304 Hits
207 HRs
1,085 RBI

10x All-Star
2x World Series Champion
6x Gold Glove
6x Silver Slugger

Gives the team much needed defense from the CF, and offensively he was no slouch either. In fact, you could almost count on this guy reaching 200 hits a season. Unfortunately, a freak eye injury cut his career short. Puckett + Clemente will combine for a very fearsome outfield for opposing hitters.
