You've got a dominant middle infield defensively.

I also got Speaker in Center to complete that middle of the field defensive dominance. He was by all accounts was one of the best defensive CFs ever.

I was really kicking myself in the head between either Puckett or Alomar. It came down to need for me. =/

Bloody hell. If I didn't get Alomar I was planning to select Larkin and they go with consecutive picks... With the one hundred and fifth overall pick in the 2013 HF Boards All-time Draft the Montreal Expos are pleased to select, from Sunny Hills High School, a native of Fullerton California, C Gary Carter.



Carter is ranked as the second greatest catcher of all-time by JAWS and wins above replacement and his 324 home runs rank him in the top three for career homers at the position. A ten time All-Star, Carter won three Gold Gloves and five Silver Sluggers. An accomplished defensive player, he ranked first all-time in putouts by a back-stop at the time of his retirement and was a key element of the Mets 1986 World Series champions.

Nice pick. A bit off the radar with some other bigger names available but Joss was more dominant albeit in a shortened career.

The Pittsburgh Crawfords are pleased to select their closer, RP - Rollie Fingers. IMO he is the 2nd best closer ever, I'm sure if you ask 5 different folks in this draft we will get 5 different answers as to who ranks directly behind Rivera. I weight closers, much moreso than any other position, on postseason success. I feel Fingers best combines the regular season accolades with the tremendous postseason success of the non-Mariano closers.


- BBHOF (1992)
- 3 Time World Series Champion
- MVP Award winner (1981) with 2 Top 5 finishes
- 3 Times Led League in Saves, with 11 Top 5 finishes
- Cy Young Award Winner (1981) with 2 Top 5 finishes
- 4 Times Rolaids Relief Award Winner
- 2.35 Career Postseason ERA in 30 appearances

Continuing the run of pitchers (and mustachio'd Oakland A's pitchers, for that matter ), Brooklyn is pleased to welcome Catfish Hunter to the team.

Coincidentally, he joins another Dodger, Christy Mathewson, as one of only three pitchers in MLB history to reach 200 wins by the age of 31.

224-166
2012 career K's
Pitched a perfect game in 1968
5 consecutive seasons with 21+ wins.
Won Cy Young in 1974
5x World Series Champion (over a span of 7 years)
8x All Star

What's wrong with that? Those 3 years in Cleveland were amazing. His 2 best seasons came in an Indians uniform.

I'm only 21 and don't remember the Jays days so I figured I pick a uniform I watched him play in and it came down to that and Baltimore and that was the better picture I found.

Count me amongst those who consider it sacreligious to have portrayed Alomar in anything other than a Jays uniform.

His "best" years were indeed with the Jays, but I wouldn't call it a foul or anything to depict him wearing another jersey. He is a Hall of Famer, after all, and good enough to get drafted here, so really, can you go wrong?

Cleveland Indians select


Pitcher Dazzy Vance

Lead NL in strikeouts 7 straight seasons
1924 MVP
Inducted into HOF in 1955

His 1924 season in kind of ridiculous in its dominance. Pedro Martinez's 99 and 00 seasons are noted for his dominance, but in 1924 Vance accounted for 1/13 strikeouts in the entire NL. Vance's career totals are quite impressive. 197-140 record, 3.24 ERA, 6.2 K/9, 125 ERA+. All of this despite only having thrown 33 IP in his 20s. The man pitched all but a token part of his career in his 30s and 40s and still dominated.

As a Yankees fan, I've never feared an opposing hitter as much as Manny in his prime, and it's not even all that close.

There's a reason that Ramirez always hit cleanup in those great Boston lineups.
