With the 296th pick in the 2013 HFBoards All-Time Draft the Montreal Expos are pleased to select, from the University of Miami, a native of Granada Hills, California, LF Ryan Braun.



Throughout the first six years of his career Braun has been one of the most productive hitters in history with 202 homers and a career 147 adjusted OPS. The Hebrew Hammer has also added to that three top three finishes in MVP voting, including a win in 2011 and runner-up this past season, and five consecutive Silver Slugger Awards. Despite questions regarding his purported involvement in a PED scandal, Braun has continued to be one of the game's most feared hitters and looks to be on his way to a Hall of Fame calibre career.

*.313/.374/.568/.942 slash line
*202 home runs
*147 adjusted OPS
*2007 NL Rookie of the Year Award
*2008 league leader in fielding percentage (1.000)
*2011 NL Most Value Player Award
*2012 league leader in home runs
*2012 league leader in total bases
*2012 league leader in runs scored
*2-time league leader in slugging percentage
*2-time league leader in OPS
*2-time league leader in range factor (LF)
*2-time league leader in fielding percentage (LF - 1st active, 3rd all-time)
*4-time league leader in putouts (LF)
*5-time Silver Slugger Award recipient
*5-time All-Star Game selection (four time starter)
*32.0 career wins above replacement after six seasons

sorry guys, didn't get a chance to look up some players until now.

With their other skipped pick, the Cincinnati Reds are pleased to finally select their 3B...

Ray Dandridge -- 3B

After the color barrier fell, he played four years with the Giants' Triple-A affiliate in Minneapolis, batting .318 overall and winning the American Association MVP in 1950.
"There simply never was a smoother functioning master at third base than Dandridge, and he can hit that apple, too." xxx xxxxx

In addition to his quick hands, he had a powerful am, and the versatility to excel at shortstop and second base as well as at third base.

He joined xxx xxx, xxx xxx, and xxx xxx to form the "million dollar infield" of the Newark Eagles during the late 1930s. Some said that a train could go through his bowlegs but that a baseball never did. And those bandy legs never kept him from running the bases; he finished third in the league in stolen bases in 1944, behind xxx xxx and "Cool Papa" Bell.

Often called "the best third baseman never to make the major leagues," Dandridge was also a good hitter for average, rapping the ball at a .370 clip during the 1944 season while leading the league in hits, runs, and total bases. A spray hitter who went with the pitch, and possessing a camera eye and good bat control, he seldom struck out and was a skilled practitioner of the hit and run play.

During his time in the Negro National League he compiled a lifetime .355 average in league play and played in three All Star games, posting a lofty .545 batting average for the classics. The star infielder was also voted by the fans to start in two additional All Star games, but he missed these due to excursions to Latin America. He also was elected for the 1938 East-West All Star squad, but the Eagles withheld him, and the East lost the game.

After leaving baseball, he worked as a bartender and as a recreation director for the city of Newark before finally retiring to Florida. Dandndge was duly recognized as one of the greatest third basemen in the history of baseball when he was inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1987.

The Astros select Closer Francisco Rodriguez "K-ROD"



2.70 ERA
878 Strikeouts
294 Saves
18.7 WAR
4x All-Star
1x World Series Champ
2x Rolaids Relief Award
3x Saves Leader

By just about any measurable statistic, K-Rod is an outstanding closer, and had one of the most dominant primes in the position's history.

Had I known that Papelbon and K-Rod would both go right after selecting Braun, I would have just taken one of the pair first and then taken Braun. Pretty annoyed right now.

I know that feeling. I felt the same way when I took Wagner and then Smith went but no other relievers went after that until my next pick and I lost Beltran as a result.

Yeah, for sure. The most difficult thing about these types of drafts is to try and accurately predict when people will be "followers" for a given type of position and... I don't want to use the word panic... but be more "inclined" to take a certain position once they see one or two GM's take that guy off the board. People tend to draft the same type of players in bunches or groups I find.

I thought I had a beat on Beltran, I didn't think anybody else would value him, but at the same time I didn't want to get shafted on a closer again (been there before).

Haha, I've got a week off between games during my gig at the Air Canada Centre, so I'm trying to shoulder a bit of Pwnasaurus' weight while he's gone for the weekend.

Think nothing of it, gentlemen.

I'm back. I pmed my shortlist to Pwn but I guess he wasn't on or didn't see it, so I'll make my selection now. I'm very sorry about the long wait, this draft is going slow enough and I don't need to make it any slower.



The Astros select Catcher Lance Parrish



.252 BA
1,782 Hits
324 HR
1,070 RBI
36.0 WAR (14.7 dWar)
8x All Star
3x Gold Glove Award
6x Silver Slugger

The Astros select their first bench player. As we all know, there is no position in baseball that that takes a beating quite like a catcher. Overworking a catcher can lead to serious slow down and injuries. The best example in recent history being Joe Mauer. For this reason, the Astros are committed to a 2 catcher rotation. While I acknowledge that Parrish had durability issues throughout his career, his healthy years were great. He excelled at both offense and defense during his prime. With him splitting starts with Joe Torre, the Astros are expecting to have a healthy Parrish ready to go.

Also, I'd suggest leaving more on the clock for Hawks fan, because he has been very active and I'm not sure if he expected me to be back on to pick tonight.

Parrish is a damn fine pick as a back-up in our format. I had him on a personal short-list myself.

With the 305th pick in the 2013 HFBoards All-Time Draft the Montreal Expos are pleased to select, from Avon Park High School, Florida, a native of Sebring, Florida, RP Tom Gordon.



One of the best two-way relief pitchers of all-time, Flash as he was known, was a spot starter for years in Kansas City, alternating between bullpen and starting duty, before being converted to a closer full-time in Boston. Three times he would be named an All-Star for his services out of the bullpen and he would lead the American League in saves with 46 in 1998. Between 1998 and 2006 Gordon recorded a stellar ERA+ of 152 and saved 136 games alternating between set-up and closing. His versatility, whether as a closer, fireman, or starting option makes him an incredibly valuable asset at this stage in the draft. In addition, Gordon ranks sixth all-time as a reliever according to the JAWS metric.

*113 career ERA+ (138 as a reliever only)
*138 career victories
*158 career saves
*1998 AL saves leader
*1998 AL Rolaids Relief Award
*3-time All-Star Game selection
*32.5 career wins above replacement
*6th ranked reliever of all-time according to JAWS

from where I sit it looks like the Astros have been skipped and the Cougars are on the clock.
