    Pitching depth is always helpful. I'll take Ed Reulbach of the 08 Cubs.

    Here on the 24th Round we see our first pinch-hitter drafted! Not a bad move! A career 136 OPS+ certainly comes in handy in a tight situation!

    The 1919 Reds are now off the board!

    I need a righthanded hitting leftfielder with power to do a little platoon work, and to provide a strong bat off the bench. I've been looking at a Cincinnati guy who fits the mold. But, as Ian kindly noted, there's another Cincy guy who also played some left. Personally, I think this guy was a better all around player, though he was hurt a lot. Great speed, good defense despite what WAR says. So, I'll take

    Eric Davis, LF- 1990 Cincinnati Reds.

    So do the 441 stolen bases in case I need a pinch runner.

    The 1990 Cincinnati Reds are off the board! I'd also like to note that if one more person picks from the 1991 Minnesota Twins, the entire 1990's will be off the board.

    Bert Campaneris of the 1972 A's

    My final pick is Gene Woodling of the 1953 Yankees. Mr. Woodling holds a very unique distinction of having played his only postseason games with all five of the Yankees' 1949-1953 World Series stretch (which they all won).

    I double-checked and everything. Too many names I must have missed him. Instead I'll take Bert Campaneris of the 1972 A's.

    Normally I'd take another pitcher at this point. But, in spirit with the rules Ian has created, I'll pick a backup CFer so I'll be covered at every position. Of course, I already have a backup CFer in Eric Davis, but he can't play there according to the rules. So, I'll take one of the few guys who could go get 'em like Willie Mays-

    Curt Flood, CF- 1964 St. Louis Cardinals.

    Begone, 1972 A's! Away with you, 1964 Cardinals! Get outta heah, 1965 Dodgers! You're all off the board!

    Ian, are you planning to set up a roster thread? It also could be used to post each team's "essay", if that's what you want to do.

    For my final pick I will take a player who, while not great, was pretty solid in a fairly short career. He provides me with a left-handed bat off the bench and is versatile enough to play all three outfield positions. That's right, boys and girls, I'm talking about:

    Wally Moon, 1959 Los Angeles Dodgers, LF, CF, RF

    These guys like Derrill Thomas and Wally Moon I'll admit I snicker at but now I have to wonder if there more valuable than PieTraynor or Bernie Williams but being new to these drafts its a learning lesson but still I find it hard to believe that they would be much of a factor on any team. No disrespect on the picks but my god if I can take Ted Kluzinski or Greg Luzinski im taking em both over Wally Moon. Jeez dont get me started on who ya can pick over Derrill Thomas. Again no offense here because im sure you know what your doing.

    To be perfectly honest, I doubt any of us truly "knows" what he's doing. Since we can't be certain how the voters will evaluate our teams, we can only choose a strategy and cross our fingers that it pays off once we get to that stage of the competition. I opted for versatility because I hope the voters will look favorably on it. If they don't, well, that's the price you pay for taking risks.

    Not a bad guy to have in a pinch-hitting role. I probably would've taken him myself if I could've played him in the field. And the 1981 Dodgers come off the board.
