There's a long list of guys that should be in before Mcgriff. And I'd say besides the obvious 2 (Shoeless and Rose) the list starts with the big 3 of the 1984 Tigers (XXXXX, Trammell, Whitaker). That's not a knock on you or Griff, but more a knock on BBWA. They're the most idiotic group of voters in sport.

Anyway, the Houston Astros select Manager Casey Stengel.

XXXXXXX shouldn't be anywhere near the Hall unless he's paying.

I apologize to everyone in the draft. XXXX hasn't been drafted yet, and I apologize. It slipped my mind completely. However, we will agree to disagree Jays, except I must say Trammell and Whitaker>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>XXXXX I agree. XXXXX isn't on Tram and Lou's level; however being the biggest workhorse of his time makes him worth a serious look imo.

Keeping the trend of Pirate relievers going, the Cougars add the first proto-typical closer, Roy Face.

With the 265th overall pick in the 2013 HFBoards All-Time Draft the Montreal Expos are pleased to select, from the College of San Mateo, a native of San Mateo, California, RP John Wetteland.



A three-time All-Star Game selection, Wetteland pitched nine consistently dominant seasons as an elite closer between 1992 and his unexpectedly early retirement following the 2000 season. During that period he recorded an adjusted ERA of 168, 330 saves, and was named the Rolaids Relief Reliever of the Decade for the 1990s. Wetteland was the focal point of the bullpen for the 1994 Expos during their interrupted run as the greatest regular-season team in baseball that year. He was even better the season before for a second place Expos squad, posting a remarkable adjusted ERA of 305 thanks to a 1.37 ERA that season. Two years later he would experience the high water point of his career, as he helped the New York Yankees to their first World Series title in eighteen years, recording a save in all four victories, and being named World Series MVP. His seven saves during New York's successful 1996 playoff run remain a post-season record.

*330 career saves (11th all-time)
*168 adjusted ERA (as a closer)
*1993 win probability added leader
*1996 AL saves leader
*1996 AL Rolaids Relief Award
*1996 World Series champion
*1996 World Series MVP Award
*Rolaids Relief Reliever of the Decade for the 1990s
*18.3 career wins above replacement
*9-times top 5 in saves (every season as a closer)
*9.8 strikeouts per nine innings career average (as a closer)
*Only relief pitcher in history to record a save in every win of his team's series victory

I'm going to take a very nasty and powerful player in his day before injuries caught up to him. Let me introduce the 2x MVP and 5x 40 homerun hitter:

RF - Juan Gonzalez

The Pittsburgh Crawfords are pleased to select the fan favorite of the 19th Century, jack of all trades, C/OF - King Kelly. Kelly played every position during his illustrious career but he will serve primarily as the backup catcher on the Crawfords having played about one-third of his career games at that position. He will also backup in the outfield a bit.
Kelly's speed and audacity on the field as well as his position flexibility will make him a great super sub on our ballclub. We look forward to utilizing King's speed all over the diamond and the fact that he caught very regularly throughout his career and can give Josh Gibson a rest only enhances his value to us. His repeated appearance in the Top 5 in various categories is yet another testament to his versatility. Kelly had quite an arm behind the plate as well, throwing out 46% of would-be basestealers for his career, well above the 37% league average.


- BBHOF 1945
- 4 Times Top 5 Batting Average (Led League 2 Times)
- 4 Times Top 5 On-Base % (Led League 2 Times)
- 4 Times Top 5 Slugging %
- 8 Times Top 5 Runs Scored (Led League 3 Times)
- 4 Times Top 5 Hits
- 2 Times Top 5 Homeruns
- 6 Times Top 5 RBI
- 3 Times Top 5 Stolen Bases
- 4 Times Top 5 in CS% as Catcher (Led League Once)
- 5 Times Top 2 in Outfield Assists (Led League Once)

What is this strange place I have entered? Looks familiar, but very different. I feel somewhat like a Puerto Rican in Spain?

Switch hitting center fielder...


Bernie Williams

4 time gold glover
4 time World Series Champion
1998 Batting Champion
.850 Career Playoff OPS
59.5 Career offensive WAR (78th all time)
.381 Career OBP
125 Career OPS+

Bernie is a proven winner. He was often the best player of the Yankee dynasty and was perhaps underrated as a result. While he never had the name recognition of Jeter or Clemens he was an outstanding player. Williams will serve as my 4th outfielder. While he was primarily a center fielder he did play a few games in the corner spots as well. Williams will primarily serve as a platoon option off the bench.

Definitely one of my favorite players of all-time.

One thing about Bernie that doesn't translate to his stats: he was one of the toughest at-bats in baseball. He was always stepping out of the box late and fouling off pitches, really frustrating his opponents and giving his teammates an extended look at the guy on the mound.

The night that Williams decided to turn down the Red Sox and return to New York -- who had a deal in place with Albert Belle in case Bernie left -- was a forgotten huge moment in baseball history. It prevented the balance of power in the AL from completely shifting, and extended the Yankees dynasty for three years.
