Take both actually, you had 2 picks to take anyways...

The Pittsburgh Crawfords are pleased to select the first Scotsman to play in the majors, 19th century great and HOF snub, SP - Jim McCormick.

McCormick was a close friend of current Crawfords super sub King Kelly and will fill the 5th starter role for the club. Albeit a shortened career, McCormick's numbers are fairly astronomical.


- Led League in Overall WAR 3 Times (6 Times in the top 5)
- Led League in ERA 2 Times (5 Times in the top 5)
- Led League in Wins 2 Times (5 Times in the top 5)
- 72.7 Career WAR ranks 27th all time for pitchers (and he only played for a decade)
- JAWS ranking of 22nd among starting pitchers all-time

With the their skipped pick, the Cincinnati Reds are pleased to select...

Bill Terry -- 1B/OF

Terry was the National League MVP in 1930 and retired with an average of .341 -- a modern National League record for left-handed batters. He then succeeded John McGraw as manager and won three pennants with the Giants.

He spent two years pitching on integrated Army teams during World War II, and in his first game back with the Eagles in 1946, he tossed a no-hitter against the Philadelphia Stars.
"I would say he was the most complete ballplayer I've ever seen. I've never seen a better athlete, never seen a better baseball player all-around." - Monte Irvin

"If we had one game to win, we wanted Leon to pitch." - Monte Irvin

Willie Randolph -- 2B
"Willie Randolph may have been a multi-time All Star but it was many of the little things that got him there. He showed incredible patience at the plate and drew many free passes to help set the table for his squad’s power hitters. He was an excellent fielder and a clubhouse leader. He may not have been an offensive juggernaut, but he was a consistent performer and often the most reliable.

The Pittsburgh Crawfords are pleased to select another great bullpen arm and former Cardinal. RP - Todd Worrell.



Worrell burst onto the scene winning the 1986 Rookie of the Year award and consequently leading the league in saves that year as well. Worrell was the first reliever to save 30 or more games in each of his 1st three seasons. Unfortuately for Worrell his Cardinals teams were snake bitten in his 2 World Series appearances, once by umpire Don "Satan" Denkinger in 1985 and the other in 1987 when Danny Cox couldn't get anyone out as was his style at the time.



Worrell, nonetheless, holds one of the better Cardinals postseason pitching resumes in their history to the tune of a 1.93 ERA in 15 games with 4 saves and nearly a strikout per inning. He will be in a short relief role.





- 3 Time All-Star

- Rookie Of the Year

- Rolaids Relief Award Winner

- 5 Times Top 5 in Saves (Led League 2 Times)

- Career postseason ERA of 1.93 (2.31 in World Series play)

With the 465th overall pick (skipped) in the 2013 HFBoards All-Time Draft the Montreal Expos are pleased to select, from San Diego State University, a native of San Diego, California, 3B Graig Nettles.



Nettles was one of the best all-around third-basemen of the 1970s, helping to propel the Yankees to consecutive World Series titles in 1977 and 1978. Capturing two consecutive Gold Gloves in both aforementioned seasons as well, he was recognized as one of the greatest defensive players at his position, ranking second all-time in defensive WAR amongst all third-baggers at the time of his retirement. In addition to his excellent range and strong arm at the hot corner he was an effective power hitter, pacing the American League in home runs with 32 in the 1976 campaign and slugging 20 or more in nine out of ten seasons from 1970-79.

*62.0 total career wins above replacement
*2,225 career hits
*390 career home runs
*1971 AL leader in defensive WAR
*1976 AL home run champion
*1981 ALCS MVP
*2-time World Series champion
*2-time Gold Glove Award winner
*2-time league leader in WAR by a positional player
*6-time All-Star Game selection (three times as a starter)
