Toronto Blue Jays select:

Sal Bando - 3rd Base

During the A's championship years of 1971-75, he captained the team and led the club in runs batted in three times. He was the second American League third baseman to hit 200 career home runs, joining Brooks Robinson, and retired among the all-time leaders in games (5th, 1896), assists (6th, 3720) and double plays (7th, 345) at his position. In a 16-season career, Bando was a .254 hitter with 242 home runs and 1039 RBI in 2019 games played. His brother Chris was a catcher for the Cleveland Indians.
Over four consecutive American League Championship Series from 1971–74, he hit five home runs in 17 games, including two in a 1973 game and a solo shot in Game 3 of the 1974 ALCS, a 1-0 victory.
Playing almost exclusively at third base in Oakland, Bando played every infield position while with the Brewers, even making one appearance as a relief pitcher in a 1979 game.

4 x All Star
3 x Top 4 MVP in voting
3 x World Series Champion

The Brooklyn Superbas select SP Albert Goodwill Spalding as their fifth starter.



Spalding has one of the greatest "peak" careers of any pitcher in history, however injuries derailed his standing as one of the all-time greats. He only pitched in 7 seasons, with the last season only accounting for a mere 11 IP.

252-65 (best W-L% is history)
2.13 ERA (132 ERA+)
1.19 WHIP
52nd all time for pitching WAR (in only 6 seasons)

However, in his 6 full seasons, he led the league in wins all six times as well as:

6 X top 5 in WAR
6 X top 5 in Ks
6 X top 5 in shutouts
6 X top 10 ERA
6 X top 10 WHIP

On top of being a utterly dominating pitcher, he was a great hitter, posting a .313 BA in nearly 2,000 career ABs

.279 BA
.386 OBP (7 X top 10)
126 OPS+
212 SB

Is it possible to move the draft window to 2 hours now? Everyone picked from here on out here isn't going to win anyone a title. Then we can get this finished and voted on before real/fantasy baseball starts.

I endorse this (although we may want to make an exception for the late night hours, so no one gets stuck with a 3-5am clock or something.)

I agree. I also think that everyone should make a list of 10-15 guys and leave it with Pwn (or whoever) so if there are missed picks, they can be filled in quickly.

Toronto Blue Jays select:

2 x All Star
Games pitched 987
Win–Loss record 141–119
Earned run average 3.45
Strikeouts 1,361
Saves 172

Relief Pitcher: Lindy McDaniel

Over a four-game span, McDaniel retired 32 straight hitters in August 1968. In one of those games, he pitched 7 perfect innings against the Detroit Tigers.In 1973, he entered the game in the 1st inning against the Tigers in Detroit, and pitched 13 innings giving up one run and winning game 2 to 1. McDaniel played in 225 consecutive games in National League without committing an error—a record.

He considers his top overall year as 1960 with the St. Louis Cardinals when he logged a 12-2 mark in relief with 22 saves and an E.R.A. of 1.29 while being named to the National League All-Star team and earned Fireman-of-the Year honors. He ranks his next best year as 1970 with the Yankees when he was 9-5 with a career high 29 saves and 2.01 ERA followed by the 1963 season when he was 13-7 with 21 saves and a 2.88 ERA.

McDaniel won Fireman-of-the Year honors in 1960 and 1963. He also led the National League in relief pitching in 1959, but that was the year before the first Fireman-of-the-year award was presented. With nine saves and a 0.74 ERA, McDaniel was named the Player of the Month for June 1960.

Newark selects RP Ron Perranoski



2.79 career ERA in 1174.2 innings
179 saves (2x NL saves leader)
Led NL in appearances 3 times (finished top 5 in league 7 times)
2x AL Fireman of the year ('69 and '70)

Perranoski started his career as a matchup lefty before evolving into one of the more reliable all-around relievers of the '60s. He'll definitely come in handy as a second southpaw out of the bullpen.

Next round I'll reduce the clock in half to 4 hours to assist with late hours as well. Sound good?

The Browns, with their makeup picks, select

Brian Fuentes, LHP
and
David Ortiz, DH

Fuentes has a .220 AVG when facing LHB, which is very good. Meanwhile, Ortiz will provide a lot of pop coming off the bench. Because the Browns' middle infield is quite durable, there is less of a need for a back up middle infielder. The Browns' bench includes a backup defensive outfielder, a solid pinch runner, and two corner infielders who can hit.

Cleveland Indians select


3rd Baseman Matt Williams

113 OPS+
4 time gold glover
12.4 Career defensive WAR

Williams is widely regarded as one of the top fielding third basement of all time. He backed up his great glove with some pretty incredible power numbers. Before the 1994 season was wiped out because of the strike he was giving Maris' record a solid run and eventually had to settle for leading the league with 43 homers through mid August. Williams gives me some right handed power off the bench and a very reliable fielder to spell/relieve Molitor. With 20 teams I am somewhat surprised that Williams didn't make it as a starter.

The New York Giants select RP B.J. Ryan.


  • 2 time All-Star
  • Career 3.37 ERA, 133 ERA+
  • Career 10.5 SO per 9 innings
  • 117 Career Saves

Ryan fills 2 needs for my 'pen. One, he was extremely tough on left handed hitters - LH hit .179/.285/.273 against him. Two, Ryan has the ability to get swings and misses.
