Pickings are getting slim, and I still need a long relief/spot-starter guy.

With my 20th round pick, the Wailing Wahoos select Gary Bell, reliever/starter.

Career w/ CLE: 1958-1967
Career Stats w/ CLE: 96-92, 3.71 ERA, 3.90 FIP, 1.30 WHIP, 44 SV, 419 GP, 12.6 WAR, 2x All-Star

Bell spent nearly a decade with the Indians and had a relatively productive tenure. He was predominantly a reliever, but also had a few seasons where he was used as a starter, which makes him perfect for the role I need to fill in a long-relief/spot-starter type of guy.

Bell's 1966 season was his best in my mind, as he went 14-15 with a 3.22 ERA, 2.98 FIP, 1.14 WHIP, 12 CG, 194 K, 40 GP (37 GS), 4.2 WAR, and an all-star appearance.

JDailey's spot is up next, but he has chosen to sit the rest of the draft out. He needs a backup catcher and relievers, so I'll make a fair pair of selections for him when I get home.

JDailey is going to receive the following players:

Catcher, Einar Diaz: In 2001, Diaz put together a solid season behind the dish and at the plate. He threw out 38% of base stealers (league avg. was 29
%) and slashed .277/.328/.387/.714 with 4 HR, 34 2B, and 2.8 WAR. A great option to have as a backup catcher.

Reliever, Nick Goody: Goody had a very solid 2017 season with the Indians, where he pitched in 56 games and had a 2.80 ERA, 3.45 FIP, 1.07 WHIP, 11.9 K/9, and 1.0 WAR.

I'm on the clock and will pick shortly.

Need another backup outfielder/pinch-runner type of guy, so with my 21st round pick, the Wailing Wahoos select Miguel Dilone, outfielder.

Career w/ CLE: 1980-1983
Career Stats w/ CLE: .289 BA, .700 OPS, 3 HR, 50 2B, 18 3B, 128 SB, 2.3 WAR

Dilone was a flat out slap hitting burner in the early 80s for the Indians. Never much of a power guy and an average fielder at best, Dilone is here to be my 4th/5th outfielder and pinch run late in games when a guy like Thornton or Gomes reaches late.

Dilone did have a nice overall season in 1980 for the Tribe however, as he slashed .341/.375/.432/.807 with 30 2B, 9 3B, 40 RBI, 61 SB, 180 H, 120 OPS+, 3.0 WAR, and a 22nd place finish in MVP voting. His 61 steal season is the 4th highest total in Indians history, and he and Kenny Lofton are the only players in the top-7 for single player steals.

Dilone won't be a starter for me, but as a plug and play guy and late inning replacement, I think he'll do just fine.

@sportscoach is on the clock; draft board is here: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1vhOOAVnG0Q_8Iol125TTlzYdmgpyBo2v3oz28mybcD4/edit#gid=0

Well then I guess it’s my pick, I was hoping for another reliever, but going through the older players, most of them started and relieved a lot so I am going to choose (since I didn’t see his name anywhere)

SP/RP Guy Morton


On my team I will be using him as a reliever since if he was in a more modern era he likely would have been one.

My 21st pick will be Brett Butler.

He played four seasons for the Tribe (1984-87), primarily as a centerfielder and table-setter. He put up bWAR of 3.6, 4.7, 4.0, and 4.9 totaling 397 runs scored, 95 doubles, 45 triples and 164 stolen bases.

I'll take his 1985 season where he hit .311 (5th in the AL) with a .377 OB% (9th), 106 runs (8th), 47 stolen bases (2nd), 14 triples (2nd), 184 hits (8th), and 5.0 oWAR (8th). Defensively he put up a .998 fielding% (1st) playing 150 games in center with only one error. He was also second in the league with 16 outfield assists.

I think @PIP is up next.

Okay the time has come. The moment we've all been waiting for. With my 22nd pick I select Leon (Daddy Wags) Wagner.

He spent five years (during my youth) with the Indians and although he received MVP votes for his 1964 and '66 seasons, I think his best season with us was 1965. He hit .294 (4th in the AL), with a .369 OB% (7th), .495 SLG% (4th), .864 OPS (4th), 143 OPS+ (3rd), 28 HRs (4th), 256 total bases (7th) and 4.7 oWAR (5th).

No batting gloves, hands held apart on the bat, and a pronounced hitch in his swing (he'd say "It's alright to have a hitch in your swing, but if you have a flaw in your hitch you're in trouble"), Daddy Wags could hit the ball. Perhaps the worst outfielder other than Jose Canseco I've ever seen, he was born to be a DH.

@sportscoach is up next.

Projected to finish slighter earlier than Derek’s Halloween projection

but now coach is up so I’m sure he’ll take 72 hours, make a pick, and then immediately tone deafly suggest the next poster hurry it up after 25 minutes has passed pushing us right back to the Halloween pace

It’s not my fault people before put me on the clock when I can’t even look at my phone and when I can no one else is picking!

So hmmm.... I need another good bullpen arm...

I am gonna go with...

RP/SP Dan Spillner


He was used as both a starter and a reliever but his numbers as reliever were far superior and his 82 season with a 4.4 WAR!

I have a million work horses on my roster so don’t be jealous of my horse power @The Wizard of Moz since a $25 amazon card cannot even get you the horse power my team has!

@Stark let’s keep this rolling! We are getting close to being done
