The pitcher I've drafted most often is probably 1919 Babe Adams, and the batter 1899 John McGraw. They never disappoint.
By chance, I drew Babe Adams as the captain for the current season of my own Random Captain theme (90M cap). 1919 Adams just lost an AM pitching duel, 1-0, to redwingscup's 1969 Mike Cuellar. 111 games in and Adams is 18-10 with a 2.59 ERA and #1 in Cy Young voting.
