    Really happy this guy came back around to me, I'm surprised he's still available this late in the draft. Hank Greenberg.

    im guessing he would want 1935 Greenberg due to Raines is his leftfielder.

    You didn't declare a team, but since you've already drafted from the 1935 Tigers, you'd have to take Greenberg from the 1945 Tigers. Do you plan to platoon Greenberg and Raines in left field?

    No, there are no trades in this draft.

    No. I didn't realize Greenberg only played LF for the 45 team. (Shoulda picked one of Cochrane's A's teams instead of his Tigers team) If can redo the pick, I'd take Barry Larkin instead. I know he played SS in the 1990 WS because I watched him.

    Larkin it is. Just a reminder, Windy City Fan, if you're not sure which position a player played in the World Series, you can go to Baseball-Reference, find the page of the player you want and click on the "Postseason Gamelog" link to find out. I always check with each of my picks, even when I'm 99% sure of them beforehand.

    Looks like some of our guys aren't doing their research. I was hoping Greenberg would make it back to me. Well, he has, and now I've got to make a decision. Greenberg, who clearly would have hit more than 500 homers if not for military service, or a guy who DID hit more than 500- 583, to be exact. I'm really not sure who was better. Well, I'll take the one without the baggage:

    Hank Greenberg, 1B- 1935 Detroit Tigers.

    Team #5 to come off the board is...the 1935 Detroit Tigers.

    Curses! Ian took Bucketfoot Al, not only a great choice but one of my all-time favorites. Gimme a few minutes I must change tactics.

    Drysdale was on my radar for my next pick, so you've counter-foiled my plans.

    I think Simmons was on the radar of several of us.

    Hmmm, decision time. I'm not one to overrate relievers, as I believe many do. However, due to the- ahem- intriguing selection process of at least one of our members, top relievers are vanishing. Therefore, I'll take one of the very best-

    Hoyt Wilhelm, RP- 1954 New York Giants.

    You've already got Mays from the 1954 Giants. You can't draft Wilhelm.

    Omigosh! And here I was mocking others for not doing their homework! Sorry about that. Give me a few minutes.

    Okay-

    Eddie Cicotte, SP AND RP- 1917 Chicago White Sox.

  19. #219
    The 1917 White Sox are now out. You sure like taking teams off the board, don't you Ron? Of the six teams that have been eliminated so far, three of them have been on your picks. Matthew, CWS and I account for the other three.

    Nice grab, Ron. Highly underrated pitcher. Had he not participated in the 1919 fix he might well have won 300 and gone to the Hall.
