With the 505th overall pick (skipped) in the 2013 HFBoards All-Time Draft the Montreal Expos are pleased to select, from Tampa Bay, Florida MGR Al Lopez.



A Cuban-American of Spanish heritage and a former all-star catcher, Lopez would ultimately be known as the Spanish Gentleman for his quiet, calm demeanour and popularity with players and fans alike.

Lopez managed for seventeen successful seasons in the majors between the Cleveland Indians and Chicago White Sox without a single losing campaign. Although he never captured a World Series title, Lopez's Indians in 1954 and White Sox in 1959 were the only two clubs over the fifteen year period between 1949 and 1964 that managed to defeat the New York Yankees for the American League pennant. Had he managed during virtually any other period in baseball history it seems probable that Lopez's clubs would have won numerous additional pennants as evidenced during his six year stint in Cleveland: the Indians averaged 95 wins per season but finished in second place on five occasions behind New York. In fact, it required an infamous 111 win season in 1954 to finally deprive the vaunted Yankees of their crown.

His nine full seasons in Chicago resulted in an average number of 90.1 wins per season and five second place finishes, including seasons of 90, 94, 94, 95, and 98 wins. Chicago won the 1959 AL crown for the first time in four decades under Lopez's steady hand. His 1,410 victories as a manager are twenty fifth on the all-time list and his career winning percentage of .584 is the fifth-best ever. He was inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1977 for his success in the dugout.

RP: Clay Carroll
* 96-73, 2.94 ERA
* NL Reliever of the Year (1972)
* Two Top-10 Cy Young Finishes
* Playoffs: 4-2, 1.39 ERA, 1.14 WHIP

His career year was 1972, when he went 6-4, 2.25 and his 37 saves led all of the major leagues. The Reds lost the 1972 World Series in seven game to the Oakland Athletics that year, but he was still with the Reds when they won the title in 1975, in seven games over the Boston Red Sox. He was credited with a win in both the 1970 and 1975 Series, and in 1972 went 0-1 but with a save and a 1.59 ERA in 5 games. Overall, he was 3-1, 1.53, in 14 World Series games.

* 1999-2004: 21-17, 2.48 ERA, 207 SV, 440 IP, 543 K, 1.10 WHIP

* Top-3 in Saves (2000, 2001, 2004)

He also was very strong in 6 appearances in ALDS games. Unfortunately his ALCS and WS performances (combined 10 appearances) are one of the main reasons he gets such a bad reputation. In the end though he was an absolutely dominant pitcher in the late 1990's and early 2000's. He had a lightning quick arm and a great splitter. Due to my strong bullpen, I feel very comfortable slotting him in a less important role and believe he will be able to help us do very well in the regular season and we can limit his appearances in the playoffs.
1B: Jason Giambi
* .280, 429 HR, 1405 RBI, .926 OPS
* 3x Top-5 in MVP Voting (Won MVP in 2000)
* Hit 30+ Homeruns 8 Times
* Playoff Stats: .290, 7 HR, 19 RBI, .911 OPS

He has driven in 100+ RBI seven separate times. He has also drawn 100+ walks in a season seven times, and his 1314 walks rank as # 35 on the all-time list. He also gets on base frequently via hit-by-pitch, with 173 times lifetime.

Alright so after this we go into lineup assassinations by conference, where we post lineups and people basically critique them and you get to defend their "assaults". Then we vote on seeding in the conference and then we get to the playoffs

Sorry for not posting sooner...

With their skipped picks, the Cincinnati Reds are pleased to select:

Jesse Haines -- RHP

He authored a no-hitter against Boston in 1924, and two years later he defeated the Yankees twice in the World Series, tossing a shutout and the series-clincher.
Ray Schalk -- C

He was also a superb handler of pitchers and was the first to catch four no-hit games. Schalk was also one of the swiftest catchers in history, stealing 30 bases in 1916 and 24 in '14.
Travis Jackson -- SS/3B

Nicknamed Stonewall, after the Civil War general and for the wall of defense he supplied at shortstop, he also hit 135 home runs and compiled six .300-or-higher seasons at the plate. Rogers Hornsby praised Jackson by saying, "In all the years I watched him, playing with him and against him, I never saw him make a mistake."

At some point we have to say enough's enough and move onto voting. If teams have incomplete rosters so be it.

Everyone make sure that your Roster is up to date on the Roster page. Rank all the teams (except your own) in each conference for the regular season.

Send the American League votes to me. Send the National League votes to Modo.

We'll say voting ends Saturday at midnight est?

Well I dunno. In the Hockey ATD they have a period where you "assassinate" a team aka pick apart its strengths or weaknesses.

Here's my take...

The Brooklyn Superbas are the greatest make-believe team ever assembled. They should just get a bye to the finals.
