Newark selects LF/2B Alfonso Soriano



.273/.323/.505
372 HR
270 SB
4 30/30 seasons, 1 40/40
7x All-Star, 4x Silver Slugger

Soriano provides a right-handed power bat off the bench, along with considerable speed. His hilariously bad defense will be less of a factor due to the presence of Max Carey and Phil Rizzuto on the bench.

I almost took him instead of McGraw some rounds back. He's about an ideal a manager for this format as I can think of. Plus he had an inside pocket sewn into his baseball jersey for his cigarettes.

A few quick administrative tidbits:

- Due to popular demand (I've gotten PM's in addition to some posts here) we are now on a 4 hour clock

- Updating the first page has become nearly a second job for me so I politely ask that folks take a gander at it and take action based upon its info, unless it is like 3am eastern, it should be up to date more often than not

- I would venture a guess that around half or more of the teams have gotten a PM from me at some point that someone was skipped and they are now up. I don't expect teams drafting to see if someone was skipped previously and move onto PMing the next manager instead, that's fine, I usually do that anyways but.....

- If you have been skipped previously for any reason (time expiration, drafting an already selected player and not re-selecting, etc) you get auto-skipped on your next turn and should already have a previous PM in your mailbox (this is outlined in the rule set on the 1st page). I don't think any manager who has selected a previously selected player 2x has not had a follow up post made by someone alerting them of this.

- It sucks if you don't get a PM for some reason originally and if you don't have picks to already make up (if you have a pick to make up for Round 20, you likely won't get a PM for Round 21, etc)...I can't control that so I would recommend just checking out the front page and seeing where we are at and jumping in with a pick if appropriate rather than waiting for a thread post or a PM.

- I do my best to keep everything moving and everyone happy with the progression of the draft as well as PMing alerts where I think it it will help that progress but some of it needs to be self-serve as well for my own sanity.

- Check out the draft clock in red above the Round 1 picks on the 1st page, it's likely the most important line item in this thread and was created to help the draft become more self serve.

With the 425th overall pick in the 2013 HFBoards All-Time Draft (skipped) the Montreal Expos are pleased to select, a native of Pinar del Rio, Cuba, RF Tony Oliva.



Over a brilliant fifteen season MLB career spent entirely with the Minnesota Twins the Cuban-born Oliva established himself as one of the most consistent hitters in the American League. He led the league in hits on five occasions and won three batting titles between 1964 and 1971, becoming a key cog in Minnesota's drive to the 1965 World Series, and division titles in 1969 and 1970.

The 1964 AL Rookie of the Year, Oliva also won the batting title as a rookie - one of the few players ever to do so - and led the league in total bases with a remarkable 374 total, while also leading the AL in hits, runs, and doubles. Although he never won a World Series he nonetheless recorded a lifetime .314 post-season batting average and .928 OPS over 13 playoff games. Despite numerous injuries over the course of his career, which negatively impacted his counting statistics, Oliva retired with an impressive adjusted career OPS of 131 and a career .304 average.

*.304/.353/.476/.830 career slash line
*131 career adjusted OPS
*1907 career hits
*220 career home runs / 947 career RBIs
*329 career doubles
*1964 AL runs leader
*1964 AL total bases leader
*1971 AL slugging leader
*2-time AL MVP runner-up
*3-time AL batting champion
*4-time league leader in 2B
*5-time league leader in hits
*39.7 total career wins above replacement

I have a funny Bobby Abreu story (how many times have you heard that?)

I was over my in-laws one time and my 6 year old nephew comes up to me and says "Guess what? Bobby Abreu is coming to my house, he wants to play catch"

A-Rod? Jeter? Mo? Nope...my nephew chooses Abreu.....

It was a fabrication, but one that seemed semi-plausible to him I guess since he did not choose one of the superstars I suppose.

Toronto Blue Jays select:

RP - Don McMahon


Win–loss record 90–68
Earned run average 2.96
Strikeouts 1,003
Saves 153.

All-Star selection (1958)
2× World Series champion (1957, 1968)

McMahon was used almost exclusively in relief during his 18-year MLB career. He appeared in 874 games, just two as a starter, and was one of the major leagues' busiest and most dependable relievers during his era. He never once spent time on the disabled list, and in the fifteen full seasons that he played (1958–1972), he averaged about 54 games and 81 innings pitched per year.

Newark selects RP Arthur Rhodes



One of the most reliable matchup lefties of all-time (holding left-handed batters to a .217 average over 20 MLB seasons,) Rhodes ranks first in baseball history in holds with 231, and 16th all-time in K/9 with 8.73.

In a league with all of the best hitters in the history of the sport, you can never have enough southpaws out of the pen.

Can we select a pitching coach instead of a bench player?

If so, I'd like Dave Duncan.
If not, I'd like someone whose initials are RR. I don't want to mention him in case I can take Duncan. I can PM someone his name so I can hold him at this spot
