After more research time than any sane human not named Bill James should ever waste, I've determined that I need to change my oracle chain to the following:

Billy Hamilton to Josh Hamilton

Billy Hamilton played with Mike Grady for the 1894 Philadelplhia Phillies
Mike Grady played with Babe Adams for the 1906 St. Louis Cardinals
Babe Adams played with Joe Cronin for 1926 Pittsburgh Pirates
Joe Cronin played with Ted Williams for the 1941 Boston Red Sox
Ted Williams played with Al Worthington for the 1960 Boston Red Sox
Al Worthington played with Rick Dempsey for the 1969 Minnesota Twins
Rick Dempsey played with Arthur Rhodes for the 1992 Baltimore Orioles
Arthur Rhodes played with Josh Hamilton for the 2011Texas Rangers.

I've found that it's difficult to repeat any one chain on the oracle unless you remember who you've excluded and apply a lot of patience; however, I'll try to recover this one and send a pasted copy to the commissioner to verify that I didn't just make this one up without his having to waste time verifying.

Fun theme. If there is time I may scrap my above list and try again - not happy with the way my draft turned out.
