    I always Considered McBride and Mumphrey as Lankford and Gilkey light.

    Well, we are down to the last four selections. Two players have to fill out player slots (one position player, one pitcher), and two have yet to select a manager. It would be interesting to see what sort of team could be put together with the leftovers. I’d imagine it would be a pretty solid club, itself. The Cards have a rich history, and this has been a lot of fun to participate in.

    There are several really good players still on the board. It would be a very good team.



    Someone should seed these teams then run some sim series.



    Or have different posters do game write ups for a single elimination tourney.



    For my last pick, I think I will go with someone who doesn’t have flashy numbers or great WAR numbers. They are the original “swiss pocket knife” (IMO) for the Cardinals. They can come off my bench and fill in wherever is needed. His knickname is: The Secret Weapon.

    141. forsch31 – Jose Oquendo, Bench.

    My team needs one more pitcher, and there are two guys who are almost clones of each other. They had parallel careers, which include stints with the Cardinals of course, and were physically similar.

    Both were starters early in their careers, and had success as bullpen pitchers later. You could toss a coin and get about the same guy.

    I decided to go with the one who won an MVP and a boatload of gold gloves. He was mostly a throw-in from us on the famous Brock-Broglio deal, being near the end of a very good career. He is still with us today in his 90s. A nice way to finish up my roster.

    143. bicyclemike – Bobby Shantz, P

    John Denny was really quite good. I think he ended up around 36 war.

    The player I came away most impressed with is Paul Dejong. He is basically a young Marty Marion with Ron Gant’s bat. I nearly picked him for both SS and finally 2nd base. I just felt he hadn’t earned this status.

    The other player who shocked me was Mean Al. I recall him being invincible. The numbers suggested otherwise. It made me question the numbers; I still think I would pick Hrobosky over any other LH reliever this side of Billy Wagner.

    So what’s next? It’s getting late and I’ve been working on a spreadsheet off and on today that is now complete. Data, data, data. Anyway, tomorrow I will share how the playoffs will work. But for tonight, here’s a sneak peak at a few of the stats I’ve compiled for all of the drafted players:

    5880.5 WAR
    3925.8 WAR for position players
    1954.7 WAR for pitchers
    Approx 118 OPS+ and 118 ERA+
    17173 HR
    86542 Runs
    81820 RBI
    15929 Steals
    7632-5466 W-L Record
    65508 Ks
    38 combined Cy Young/MVP Awards
    173 Gold Gloves
    401 All Star appearances

    That’s a winner! See you tomorrow.

    C- Tom Pagnozzi ——— Terry Kennedy

    The guy I was considering taking most of the time after Mort Walker was picked was Matt Wieters. We remember him the last couple years, but he was pretty good early in his career in Baltimore. 4 All Stars and 2 Gold Gloves. I ended up digging a little deeper and couldn’t pass up a guy named Spud. Ha.


    Paid - Annual

    Very cool project. Thanks for putting this together stlcard25! KS has a lot of names that that I am sure most of us mulled over a time or two.

    Another guy I looked at was Hoyt Wilhelm. But he fell a couple weeks shy of playing a full season with us so he barely missed the eligibility requirement.

    Needing a pitcher for my last spot I thought about both John Denny and the Mad Hungarian. But it came down to one of three lefties, with the third guy yet another good pitcher not listed, Bill Sherdel. And another good one I considered was righty Lindy McDaniel.

    The Cardinals have had some players!


    Paid - Annual

    A few guys from my younger Cardinal watching years that I at least thought about a little… Fernando Viña, Todd Stottylmire, Pat Hentgen.

    I have a feeling that if we do this exercise again in 5 years, Dylan Carlson will be an easy pick for someone. His trajectory looks really good for someone his age. We will see about guys like Libby, Stormin Gorman and Jordan Walker, who could be the next round of stars.

    Finally, I had to give a little nod to Oscar Taveras. Oh how I wish we had gotten to see what he could have become. Dumb, dumb decisions we make as youth and some pay a massive price.

    Sorry, just saw this but I meant Walker Cooper. Had a sort of Mort Cooper, Walker Cooper amalgam going on there. Lol.

    One guy that I almost used was Rick Sutcliffe but I couldn’t pull the trigger because he was too much of a Cub for me.

    I know what happened there. The site does not like to let you scroll highlight for copy and paste on mobile. The end of Round 9 is as far as it would let me go and still copy the text. Must be just before the end of round 9 was the actual cutoff. TON is in all the other places I have the picks catalogued.

    Not nitpicking, you’re doing a wonderful job.

    The guy who was really better than you thought was Ron Fairly. I only remember him as a lefty pinch hitter like Rusty Staub. In reality his totals were like Staub. He would have been a real UT steal late.


    Paid - Annual

    btw commish, your 10 position players are tops in bWAR/162 (games), of all rosters. You edged me by 45.7 vs 45.6
