Well that didn't take long. Of course, the answer is: once you have the best hitters who have ever been, you need the best pitchers who have ever been. And my scouts from the past advise me that

ItsOnlyThree !

So, the Riddlers welcome Mr. Brown (who only needs three). Check out this series of ERAs, and tell me that there is more to pitching than not giving up runs

1906 29 CHC NL 1.04
1907 30 CHC NL 1.39
1908 31 CHC NL 1.47
1909 32 CHC NL 1.31
1910 33 CHC NL 1.86

No limp wristed wannabe here.
This is Mordecai, the best that has ever been!

The Behrens are catching me napping, while they pick up the crucial middle infielders.
And that is what I do.

The Riddlers are Napping for the 24th selection of this draft, and are proud to announce that Mr. Lajoie has joined the club!

With the 26th pick of the Historical League draft, the Cleveland Spiders select...

Mickey Mantle, CF



Scouts feel young Mickey has much promise with the bat, showing great power from both sides of the plate. Mickey was unavailable for comment after the pick, but the Spiders are confident he'll be a great fit hitting in the 3 spot in front of the veteran slugger Foxx.

The Windmakers are most elated and proud to draft Cleveland's favorite son and stalwart baseball God, BIG ED DELAHANTY in the 4th round to patrol the out field and knock the cover off the ball. Mr. Delehanty could not be reached for comment as he is on vacation to Niagra Falls.
