    Nice grab on Cuellar, Nige. I was mulling through my mind guys who were briefly with our club, then had a lot of success elsewhere and Cuellar completely escaped me.

    It’s funny with him as I do not remember him much as a Cardinal. The first I noticed was getting his 1965 Topps card as a kid, and being fairly naive as to the world’s population and various cultures I pronounced his name “Sue-Lar”, so I was like, “who is this Mike ‘Sue-Lar’ guy”.

    He was mostly a middle-late inning reliever on the ‘64 championship club. We sent him to Houston and he really came on. I believe his out pitch was a devastating screwball.



    “I wish you folks back in St. Louis could see this moon.”

    I was down to Cuellar vs Quisenberry and settled on the lefty. Gscottar pounced on Quiz and gave me second thoughts.

    Quiz had a very good career, mostly with KC but Whitey brought him to STL for a couple of years. There are still a few good closers left undrafted though.



    123. Forsch31 – Jason Isringhausen, P.

    Had not thought about Ryan Ludwick and his good production for us in a long time. I recall a night at Coors Field where I had a great seat, low down behind home plate. I was looking forward to Albert hitting in Coors. Well Albert did not do much – not sure he even got the ball out of the infield.

    But Luddy squared up on two pitches and cranked two bombs way out of the yard. I mean he was right on those pitches and really nailed ‘em. When he was in a groove he really was good, but was not the same player elsewhere. Sort of a reverse Luke Voit.

    Commish, you mistakenly listed my catcher as Tom McCarver……:)

    BTW, you are doing a great job. Your organizational skills are once again superb and this is a lot of fun.

    Whoops, I’ll edit that! Most likely an autocorrect in the spreadsheet. Haha


    Commish, my SP4 is Howie Pollet, drafted #93.
    I can’t believe you work so cheap. I see a fruit basket in your future!

    Nice grab on Jake “Eagle Eye” Buckley, JJ. A native of Hannibal, MO who mostly played on teams other than the relatively local St. Louis National League club.

    I am going similar route with pick #125. Another long forgotten dead ball era first baseman who mostly played with bad clubs so he never really got his due. This guy jumped over to the Federal League for a year, came back to the National League, and finally played on a pennant winner near the end of his career.

    125. Bicyclemike – Ed Konetchy, Bench (first baseman vs lefty pitching)

    I am going with more of a “heart” pick on this one, and leave what most would consider the top three or four Cardinal managers for others to mull over. The first Cardinal manager I remember as a kid, and a darn good one who like LaRussa left after winning it all. A guy who really settled down the clubhouse and got the most out of his players. The original “Number 5”.

    128. Johnny Keane, Manager

    As a postscript, my dad once said “The best thing Johnny Keane did was put Curt Flood in center field and just leave him there.” I met Flood at the National Sports Collectors convention, which was held in St. Louis in 1995, and told him that. Flood smiled and responded, “He sure did.”

    jj, that’s at least the 2nd time you took someone that I was looking to pick.

    130. forsch31 – Lonnie Smith, Bench.



    Would rather name myself as Manager. But I will follow rules.

    131. kscardfan – Joe Torre, Manager


    I know the feeling Forsch 31. My rotation would be CY Young, Pete Alexander, Kid Nichols and Larry Jackson; but two of them are in your rotation.

    The snake style draft helps even that out. Drafting between you and Bikemike has been brutal.


    Paid - Annual

    132. gscottar – Ron Gant, Bench

    Nigel T

    Paid - Three Months

    I was going to put Gant at 2B to fill out team thump. His .966 fielding at 2B is truly awful though.

    133. Nigel T The White Rat mgr


    Paid - Annual

    Ron Gant was a stud. Saw him crank one out at Coors, or maybe it was Mile High. But the thing I noticed is the guy really modeled the uniform well. He looked like a true gym rat; an earlier day Ty O’Neill.



    It has been interesting trying to draft based on who I think might be drafted between a current pick and the next time I pick in the snake draft. I have been mostly correct.
