Walter and Dimaggio at the turn - very solid value

Contemplated Bonds at 1. Along with Wagner, Cobb, and Mays. I really think Ted Williams may be the greatest hitter of all-time, so I wanted to go with him.

Nice pick though.

I should have waited until the morning to make my pick, but I did not want to hold up the draft. I am not in love with the pick either, but he has value in the OF and my other choice was Hornsby or Mathewson. I am guessing that if this is voted on by the masses here at BO, my top two picks being turn of the century pitchers would not have left a mark on the 12 year olds who vote.

Great pick with Johnson and hard to argue against Joe D as well. I am not scarred though.

was just giving you crap! not a horrible pick. I like guys like eddie collins or tris speaker or mel ott but for the sake of wanting to win a silly, free contest, Ill probably try to stick with the bigger name guys.

Pudge yes, top 10 at his position, kent on the fence. Rolen put up good numbers but is mostly remembered for being hurt.

Fun fact about Lou Boudreau if you didn't know, he was the first person to ever use the lefty shift, tried it against Ted Williams who probably laughed and hit one out.

Lol I so did not confirm that on the first page. Thought it was to good to be true but my pick will be instead... Rickey Henderson. Stat man Bill James was asked if Rickey was a future HOF-er, he said if you split him in two you'd have two HOF-ers. Guy could do it all.
