Got a PM I'm up, so I'm gonna take Derek Lowe SP/RP. When he was a closer, he was pretty darn good, and then had a near CYA year.

Seeing how the Reds missed their pick.


Toronto selects RP: Francisco Cordero



On June 1, 2011, Cordero recorded his 300th career save with the Cincinnati Reds, becoming only the 22nd player to reach that mark.

Cordero throws a hard fastball—capable of reaching the upper 90s, and also has an excellent slider that he can throw for strikes early in the count, and which he uses as his out pitch.


3 All-Star (2004, 2007, 2009)

Win-loss record 47–53
Earned run average 3.38
Strikeouts 796
Saves 329

201 home runs, 1106 RBI
5x All-Star
6x Gold Glove winner

One of the greatest defensive 3rd basemen in history, Bell is outrageously good value this late in the draft.

The Cleveland Indians select:


2B/OF Ben Zobrist

2 time positional WAR leader (2009 and 2011)
118 OPS+

Zobrist is the best modern utility man in the game. A great defensive player at second or in one of the corner outfield spots. Even at the plate Zobrist is a jack of all trades as he hits from both sides of the plate and is one of the best in the business at combining power and speed. Zobrist does not have the experience to start in this league but he will be an effective player off the bench as a pinch hitter, pinch runner, or even a defensive replacement.

The New York Giants select Negro League C/P "Double Duty" Radcliffe.



Ted Radcliffe got his nickname after catching Satchel Paige then pitching the second game of the doubleheader in the 1932 Negro League World Series.

Radcliffe was said to have amassed a .303 batting average and over 400 HR and 4,000 hits as well as winning over 400 games in the mound in a professional career that lasted over 35 years with dozens of teams.

Radcliffe's other accomplishments include the 1943 Negro League MVP at age 41 as well as being chosen 3 times each as pitcher and catcher to play in the Negro League East-West All-Star Game.

Radcliffe was known primarily for his defense behind the plate and his successes on the mound.

He will serve as the Giants' backup catcher and long reliever.

Brooklyn will take clutch playoff performer Paul O'Neill, OF. He'll add some more pop off the bench.

The Pittsburgh Crawfords are pleased to select SP - J.R. Richard.

One of the hardest throwers Major League Baseball has ever seen, J.R. Richard was a premier power pitcher for the Houston Astros until tragedy took it all away. Bringing fastballs to opposing hitters in excess of 100 mph and with a bit of wildness as well, Richard was one of the most intimidating mound presences in baseball history.

From 1976 to 1979, Richard fluctuated between 18 to 20 wins each season with an ERA never hovering above 3.11. It was however his devasting fastball and slider that allowed Richard to strike out over 300 batters twice in his career, the only right handed National Leaguer to accomplish that feat.

Early in the 1980 season however, Richard began to complain of arm troubles, many within the Astros organization and the media were critical of Richard saying he was taking himself out of games because his salary was less than that of Nolan Ryan and that he couldn't handle the pressure of pitching in the big leagues. These rumors were sent to a crashing halt when Richard collapsed during pre-game warmups on July 30, 1980. It turns out Richard wasn't fabricating his arm troubles and that he had a major stroke, one that would have killed him had he not had emergency surgery.

Richard attempted many comebacks but with the left side of his body partially paralyzed he was unable to re-learn the coordination he needed to pitch effectively. He lost much of his money in failed business deals in which he was taken advantage of and he eventually found himself homeless living under an interstate bridge. When news of his demise became public, friends rushed to his aid and helped him back on his feet, he even participated in an Old Timers Game in 1995. Perhaps most telling of Richard's talent was that during the All-Star Game in his final season, he was clocked at 100 mph with a blood clot in his shoulder and no feeling in his arm.

- 2 Times Top 5 Cy Young Finishes
- 3 Times Top 5 Wins Finishes
- 5 Times Top 5 Strikeouts Finishes ( 2 Times Led League)
- 3 Times Top 10 ERA Finishes (Led League 1979)

With our last pick, the New York Giants select submariner RP Chad Bradford.



Bradford will be the right handed specialist out the pen. Right handed hitters hit .245/.281/.304 off him. Bradford sports a career 3.26 ERA and 138 ERA+.

Bradford also has allowed just 1 earned run in 23.1 postseason innings (0.39 ERA).
