Or he can make a pick at any point once he's back as long as the player hasn't been picked.

yeah, but what if he misses like 3 rounds? His team would be done. May as well just remove his team if he misses an entire round.

Ok, I propose KH1 gets skipped for at least until the end of the round.

Who was on deck?

This is what we've done in the past. KH1 can jump in and make his pick whenever he's back on HF.

Really sorry for the delay, everyone -- I was out of town and didn't think that my pick would come up so quickly. I should have left names with someone else.

Newark Eagles select SS/3B Alex Rodriguez



A career .300/.384/.560 hitter with 647 homers, 512 doubles, 318 steals and counting, Rodriguez is one of the best hitters in baseball history by any measure, and his position (I will probably use him as a SS, but we'll see how the rest of the draft shakes out) gives him even more value. Thrilled to see him still on the board.

No worries. Great pick. I thought he was best available.

I'm pretty sure I have a trade in place with Bluesfan for the next pick. Once he confirms, I will make my selection.

And yes, ARod is a great pick. Even taking into account his douchiness, his lack of postseason success and his love of centaurs, I still think he's a top 20 pick given the position scarcity.

Yessir. The St. Louis Browns are pleased to announce a trade. The Browns have agreed with the Brooklyn Superbas to swap picks in the second and third rounds. The Brooklyn Superbas are on the clock.

The Brooklyn Superbas trade for the 35th pick and select SP Bob Gibson.



Gibson pitched for 17 years and compiled a 251-174 record, 3,117 strikeouts and a tidy 2.91 ERA (one of only 5 post-deadball era pitchers with over 3,500 IP and a sub-3.00 ERA).

1 MVP (1968)
2 World Series MVPs
2 Cy Youngs (1968, 1970)
9 Gold Gloves
8 time All Star

For all that, he was even better in the post-season with a 7-2 record and a 1.89 ERA, 0.889 WHIP and a 5.41 SO/BB ratio. He was a workhorse, pitching 27 innings in each of the 3 World Series he appeared in.

Gibson was also pretty good with the bat in his hands, hitting as high as .303 in 124 plate appearances in 1970 and ending his career with 24 homeruns and adding 2 more in World Series play.

I was really considering picking him, and when you said you wanted to trade up, I figured he was who you're going for. I'm a huge Gibby fan, but sometimes you have to ignore fandom in favor of building a team.

I'm utterly stunned that one of Pwnasaurus/UL took Gibson...completely and totally stunned...

It's like you two are the same person

He's Canadian, I'm American but we both like Bob Gibson in this spot.

Well I was torn between ARod and Gibson, but thankfully that choice was made for me. Arod is better value here but I also think you need to have a bonafide ace to win this thing. And by my calculations, there are only a couple left so I think it was worth it to trade up and not take the gamble that one would fall to me at pick #40. There's a couple of pitchers ranked pretty closely to Gibson that are still available, but Gibson's post season success gives him the edge, imo.

I don't necessarily disagree, but because of where I am picking, I'm definitely taking a different approach to the draft than this. I'm desperately hoping it pays off.

Though Gibson is a GREAT pick here.

Good pick. I'm surprised he's lasted this long.

Good pick. I've always considered him better than Koufax. He put up stronger absolute numbers, in an era when it was more difficult to do so, and he had better rate numbers despite having to pitch through his 30s. Had he been available he was my next pick.

Another good pick, and one that I might have had to have made if he fell.

My big board going into the 2nd round was Maddux, A-Rod and Pedro, so I was kind of forced into it. Very happily albeit.
