Newark selects C Ted Simmons



A career .285/.348/.437 with 248 homers, 483 doubles, and 1389 RBI, Simmons is one of the most prolific offensive catchers of all-time. He was also no slouch defensively, and caught 122 shutouts in his career. Despite having made 8 All-Star games, Simmons is historically overshadowed by his contemporary Johnny Bench -- still, I'd take him over at least three of the catchers who are already off the board.

Ted Simmons is almost as underrated as Al Simmons.

Was hoping to snag Simmons late. Still a catcher left that I like.

Kiner was my next pick, hence me asking if anyone wanted to trade down. Bloody hell.

The Cleveland Indians select one of their own:


CF Larry Doby

First black man to ever play in the AL
First black man to win a world series
136 career OPS+
1952 AL WAR leader (position players)
1950 and 1952 offensive WAR leader
2 time home run leader (1952 and 1954)
1954 RBI leader

Larry Doby in many ways had it worse than Jackie Robinson did. Doby was still subject to all the same hatred Robinson was, but in society nobody ever remembers being number 2. Robinson as the first man to break the color barrier was much more visible in the media and with that came a lot of support to help balance out all the racism. Doby did not have that advantage. Mere weeks after Robinson broke the barrier in Brooklyn Doby did the same in Cleveland without all the media support but with all the racism. In Doby's own words "Jackie got all the publicity for putting up with it (racial slurs). But it was the same thing I had to deal with. He was first, but the crap I took was just as bad. Nobody said, 'We're gonna be nice to the second Black.'"

In addition to all the offense he provided at the plate, and all the crap he had to put up with by being one of the first black men to play in the majors Doby was also a top notch base runner for his time. While his 1949 and 1950 stolen base totals of 10 and 8 respectively do not look very daunting, they were good enough for 5th and 6th in the AL respectively in those season.

With the 211th pick in the 2013 HFBoards All-Time Draft the Montreal Expos are pleased to select, from Ponce, Puerto Rico, 1B Orlando Cepeda.



Cepeda was a power-hitting first-baseman that slugged his way to 379 home runs over an illustrious 17 year major league career spent primarily with San Francisco and St. Louis. The Puerto Rican native unanimously captured the 1958 Rookie of the Year Award with the Giants after slugging 25 home runs and batting .312 during the team's first season on the West Coast. Three years later he would lead the National League with 42 home runs and 142 RBIs en route to a runner-up finish in MVP voting.

In 1967 he became the first NL player in over thirty seasons to capture the MVP Award unanimously (Carl Hubbell being the last in 1936), as he hit 25 homers and led the league with 111 RBIs for the World Series champion St. Louis Cardinals. Despite chronic knee problems that would plague him over the course of his career and limiting his effectiveness, Cepeda ended his career with five 100+ RBI campaigns, nine seasons of batting .300 or greater, a career .500 slugging percentage, and seven All-Star Games (eleven if you take into account the fact games were played twice annually for a period during his prime).

*379 career home runs
*2,351 career hits
*1,365 career RBIs
*417 career doubles
*133 career adjusted OPS
*.297/.350/.499/.849 slash line
*1958 NL Rookie of the Year Award (unanimous)
*1961 NL home run champion
*2-time NL RBI champion (1961, 1967)
*1967 NL MVP (unanimous)
*1967 World Series champion
*7-time All-Star Game selection
*46.1 career wins above replacement
*Averaged 29 home runs, 104 RBIs per 162 games

Brooklyn is proud to select a LF who wore Brooklyn colours for 18 seasons, compiling a legendary career that stands tall to this day.



Zack "Buck" Wheat, LF

Still holds the Dodgers record for hits, doubles, triples, and total bases, and a career .317 hitter.

Quote:
But even after years of hitting .300, it was Wheat's stylish defense that won him the most admirers. "What Lajoie was to infielders, Zach Wheat is to outfielders, the finest mechanical craftsman of them all," Baseball Magazine crowed in 1917. "Wheat is the easiest, most graceful of outfielders with no close rivals." An extremely fast runner, Zack was as close to a five-tool player as anyone of his era.

The Pittsburgh Crawfords are pleased to select the best first baseman in NEL history. 1B - Buck Leonard. Known as the "Black Lou Gehrig", Leonard hit .417 vs major league players and was an on-base machine while demonstrating excellent fielding skills around the bag. A longtime teammate of Josh Gibson, the pair would finish 1 and 2 in the league in BA and HR with high frequency. Leonard's Grays won 9 straight NEL pennants from 1937-45 and Bill James awards Leonard his NEL MVP for the 1939, 1940, 1947 and 1948 seasons.

- BBHOF (1972)
- Ranked 65th best player all-time by Bill James
- Major League career projections:
- .308 Career Batting Average
- 2255 Hits
- .417 OBP%
- .476 SLG%
- 145 OPS+

Let's make sure we PM managers. I didn't even know I was up, let alone about to be skipped.

Anyways, I'm taking pitcher Joe McGinnity

I still think it's too early for a reliever, but Quiz was definitely the best one on the board IMO.
