After consecutive rounds of drafting one of their own the Cleveland Indians draft an enemy to the franchise.


LHP Jimmy Key

Career ERA+ 122
3.15 Career playoff ERA in 14 career appearances
3 times top 5 in Cy Young voting
2 time World Series champion
46.1 Career WAR

Jimmy was a player good teams always wanted. After winning the World Series in 1992 with the Blue Jays the Yankees made it a priority to add him to staff where he would win another World Series. After winning the 1996 World Series the Orioles decided he was what they need to put him over the top, but despite a strong performance by Key personally, the Indians were too much for the 1997 Orioles. Key is taking the approach of if you can't beat them, join them.

Have to love Jimmy. Unquestionably one of the most underrated pitchers of the 1980s and 1990s.

He works at this spot mostly because he's a lefty, but I was actually quite surprised to see just how good he was.

Brooklyn Dodgers will be the first to appoint a manager.

Cornelius McGillicuddy Sr., also known as Connie Mack, is definitely the best fit for the Dodgers. His track record and longevity speaks for itself. If he could stick around for 50+ years, coaching some sad-sack A's teams while compiling the winningest managerial record in MLB history, just imagine what he could do with this team of all stars.



3,731 career wins, an MLB record.
5x World Series champion
9 penntants won

The Pittsburgh Crawfords are pleased to select a player whose onfield achievements are certainly HOF worthy but unfortunately, well, you know, SP - Eddie Cicotte. Cicotte was one of the first great knuckleballers and compiled over 200 career wins and a career ERA that places him among the 25 best all-time. Unfortunately being implicated in the 1919 scandal has tarnished his brilliant career, but there is no denying his on-field achievements as being HOF worthy. Despite his reputation, Cicotte compiled a 2.22 lifetime ERA in the postseason and will make a for a nice change of pace pitcher in the Crawfords rotation.

- World Series Champion (1917)
- 3 Times Top 5 in WAR (pitchers)
- Led League in WAR (inc. pitchers) 1917
- 5 Times Top 5 in ERA (Led League in 1917)
- Led League in Wins 2 Times
- 5 Times Top 5 in ERA+ (Led League in 1917)

As long as he doesn't hit the first batter of the game it's a good pick

With the 256th overall pick in the 2013 HFBoards All-Time Draft the Montreal Expos are pleased to select, from Bearsville, West Virginia, LHP Wilbur Cooper.



Cooper was one of the consistently best southpaws in baseball for a period spanning over a decade between the mid 1910s and the mid 1920s but has seemingly never gotten the recognition worthy of his accomplishments. His 216 career victories rank him 82nd on the all-time list and 21st by a left-hander, while his 116 career ERA+ ranks him in the top fifty amongst southpaws for adjusted career ERA. Cooper used a fairly underwhelming arsenal of pitches to compile four 20 win seasons in five years, a testament to his craftiness and talent for the art of pitching despite an underwhelming natural stuff that saw him post just a 3.2 strikeout rate over 9 innings pitched during his career (although he did finish second in the strikeout race on two occasions).

If there is a disappointing element to his career it is the fact that he was never once able to suit up for the Pirates in the post-season, as they had three 90 win seasons or greater during his tenure there, but were perennial bridesmaids in a tough National League. He had the misfortune of leaving the team to join the Chicago Cubs after 1924 only to see Pittsburgh win the 1925 World Series and fall to the Yankees just two short years after the fact. Nonetheless, he remains one of the best value picks remaining on the board, with a clear case for being one of the top 75 starters ever, and certainly one of the best left-handers.

*216 career wins (82nd all-time)
*35 career shutouts (71st all-time)
*279 career complete games (52nd all-time)
*2.89 career ERA
*116 career adjusted ERA
*1918 NL leader in saves (with 3!)
*1921 NL leader in wins
*1921 NL leader in innings pitched
*1921 NL leader in wins above replacement by a pitcher
*1924 NL leader in shutouts
*2-time league leader in games started
*2-time league leader in complete games
*4-times 20 wins in a season
*4-times top 5 in strikeoutes (5-times top 6)
*6-times top 10 in shutouts
*8-times top 10 in games started
*8-times top 10 in innings pitched
*8-times top 10 in complete games
*8-times top 10 in wins above replacement by a pitcher
*47.2 career wins above replacement (95th all-time amongst pitchers)

Newark selects CF Max Carey



.285/.361/.386
2,476 hits
738 stolen bases
10-time NL steals leader, 2-time NL walks leader
6 seasons with a .300+ batting average, 5 seasons with 100+ runs scored
51.1 career WAR
Elected to Hall of Fame in 1961

As one of the greatest base-stealers of all-time and a very capable defender in center, Carey is an invaluable asset to bring off the bench.

Outstanding bench selection IMO. Perfect blend of plate discipline and speed to sub in for your starters. And he was known as a good defensive outfielder as well, which is even better value-wise.

That's what I was thinking. I traded up for Andruw Jones with my previous pick, but if I had stayed put -- assuming that Jones would've been drafted before I picked -- I was prepared to make Carey my starter.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe that Carey also has the record for most stolen base titles after Rickey Henderson (who won twelve) with eleven.
