How many rookies can you name who were nearly 30 when they arrived at the SHOW, but stayed for the next 20 years?


One of them is '52 Hoyt Wilhelm, my 7th Round pick from Appalachia.

My 7th Round Illinois pick (from Grayfoxx) '84 Bret Saberhagen aka "every other year".

The round of the pitchers. When I was looking to see who was still available this morning I was surprised to see Koufax not taken. Great pickup Cardsfan.
I'll take a non-pitcher   1986 Barry Larkin - SS  from Ohio. He played his whole career in his hometown - 18 years.

Lou Piniella made it to the show at age 30 in 1969 (see Jim Bouton's "Ball Four" and won Rookie of the Year. But he only stayed for 20 years if you count managing.

When he's good, he's very good...the round of pitchers continues with Midwest Bob Feller P '36..and he fought valiantly in the war!

7th Round 2 Picks
Texarkana - Dizzy Dean P
Down the Mississippi - Mel Stottlemyre P

This round went fast ! 

We are missing picks so far only from mini157, sooners07 (from round 6 also) and stroh23.

Nice!  I already have my round 8 pick ready :) 
7/14/2014 12:50 PM
To be honest I was telling myself I'd make my pick after whoever had stagecoach (because that is my round 8 pick), but it seems sooners has dissappeared for the time being. Hoping that when he does pick, he doesn't pick the man I'm eyeing. For now, from Cali...

Michael Young SS (2001)

And he is promptly placed on the trading block.

Sooners said he was moving over this past weekend. So he is probably having internet connection problems or having trouble finding his draft notes. I think we should wait for him at this point.

I'm still around, just moving as coloradokid said. I'll make up my pick now. Sorry for slowing us down.

if you have a couple guys you're targeting for the next couple of rounds, feel free to send me a list and I can proxy for you if you like.
