Edwin was only on the team for two seasons, so he’s not a legal pick.

I don't think there is any big right handers boppers with similar numbers left is there?

Can't think of anybody off the top of my head. Most of the true sluggers were gone by the end of the fifth.

Vic Wertz in 56 and 57 had similar numbers to Edwin did in his two seasons, so maybe see if he wants to go that way? 55 and 58 he was hurt, so he didn't have a great career with Cleveland. He was brought in 54 to help get into the playoffs. @Kevalier

Okay. With my 16th pick I'll select Jim Kern. The two time Tribe All-Star earned 46 saves and 8.6 fWAR (8.2 bWAR) over six seasons with the team. His best season for us was probably 1976 when he won 10 games, saved 15, threw 117.2 innings in 50 games, had a 2.37 ERA, 146 ERA+, 1.198 WHIP, 8.5 K/9 and 3.6 fWAR.

Along with Jackson and Monge, Kern gives me three relievers who can go multiple innings and are also comfortable closing out games.

@sportscoach is up next.

Well umm....going old school again for my long reliever/mop up man, so no one better for the job then...

SP George Uhle

He will actually be my bullpen/spot starter in my mind, he has a rubber arm and has done 30 CGs in one season!

With my 16th round pick, the Wailing Wahoos select Vinnie Pestano, reliever.

Career w/ CLE: 2010-2014
Career Stats w/ CLE: 2.93 ERA, 3.47 FIP, 1.23 WHIP, 11 SV, 181.1 IP, 10.8 K/9, 4.4 WAR

Pestano didn't have a particularly long career. He only pitched over 50 innings twice in his entire career, but was a dominate reliever for us in 2011. That season he went 1-2 with a 2.32 ERA, 2.67 FIP, 1.04 WHIP, 170 ERA+, 12.2 K/9, 2.2 WAR over 62.1 IP.

The most valuable thing Pestano ever did for us however was on August 7th, 2014, when we traded him to Los Angeles for Mike Clevinger.

Pestano joins Andrew Miller and Jose Mesa in my bullpen.

@JDailey23 is on the board for back to back picks; draft board is here: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1vhOOAVnG0Q_8Iol125TTlzYdmgpyBo2v3oz28mybcD4/edit#gid=0

JDailey messaged me and asked him to make his two picks for him in the interest of keeping this moving as quickly as possible.

Based on what I can tell, he already has put together his five man rotation (Feller, Sabathia, Nagy, Carmona, Westbrook) and can currently field a nine man starting lineup as well (OF: Crisp, Lofton, Carter, IF: Alomar, Murray, Hale, Franco, Jacoby w/ Hafner DH'ing). He does have Doug Jones as his closer, but that is his only bullpen arm, so with his 16th round pick, I will select Bob Wickman, reliever.

In 2001, Wickman went 5-0 with a 2.39 ERA, 2.58 FIP, 1.11 WHIP, 32 SV, and 2.9 WAR.

With his 17th round selection, I'm going to snag Dailey a bit more outfield depth and select Rick Manning, outfielder.

In 1976, Manning slashed .292/.337/.393/.730 with 6 HR, 7 3B, 24 2B, 16 SB, and a 3.6 WAR while also winning Gold Glove that season. He also had 8 outfield assists. He makes a great 4th outfielder for this point in the draft in my opinion.

I'm on the clock, and will pick shortly.

I wasn't liking Tito Francona and his negative fielding profile as my starting left fielder - he's capable out there, but I'd be more comfortable having him either at 1B or DH, so with my 17th round selection, the Wailing Wahoos select Minnie Minoso, left fielder.

Minoso.png

Career w/ CLE: 1949, 1951, 1958-1959
Career Stats w/ CLE: .302 BA, .857 OPS, 46 HR, 175 RBI, 59 2B, 22 SB, 137 OPS+, 10.7 WAR

Minoso did most of his damage in his career with the Chicago White Sox, but still had a couple of quality seasons in Cleveland as a major fan favorite. A gold glove caliber outfielder (3x winner) and 9x all-star, Minoso was highly regarded as a great player in his era. He also led the league in HBP nine times.

With Cleveland in 1959, Minoso slashed .302/.377/.468/.846 with 21 HR, 92 RBI, 32 2B, 172 H, 17 HBP, 5.5 WAR, an all-star appearance, and a gold glove.

He'll slot in as my starting left fielder and move Tito Francona to the DH spot most likely.

My current squad:
CF - Grady Sizemore
SS - Omar Vizquel
RF - Albert Belle
2B - Jose Ramirez
LF - Minnie Minoso
1B - Andre Thornton
DH - Tito Francona
3B - Ken Keltner
C - Yan Gomes

SP - Corey Kluber
SP - Sam McDowell
SP - Trevor Bauer
SP - Shane Bieber
SP - Mike Garcia
CL - Andrew Miller
RP - Jose Mesa
RP - Vinnie Pestano

I have a friend visiting so I haven’t gotten the chance to really look at who I should pick yet... I need a closer, so I was trying to figure that.
