This was a tough one for me. Had I drafted 1st or 2nd I would have taken the 1953 Brooklyn Dodgers or the 1957 Milwaukee Braves. However, I drafted 4th and I was left with either a strong Giants or Yankees team, or stay true to the Twins and take a Senators team. I can't stand the Yankees and I have no connection to the Giants other than Jon Miller as my favorite play-by-play person. Thus, the 1955 Senators are my choice.
Let's take a look at the line-up.
1. Eddie Yost (F) 3B4 .407 OBP
2. Squirrel Sievers LF 1 .489 SLG
3. Carl Paula RF 1 .447 SLG
4. Mickey Vernon 1B 4 .452 SLG .301 AVG
5. Johnny Groth CF 2
6. Scrap Iron Courtney C7 .298 AVG
7. Pepe Valdivielso SS7
8. Pete Runnels 2B7 .284 AVG
9. Pitcher *
* O'Shea hits 5th or higher and may pinch hit a bit. "Grab a bat Francis."
1. Bear Tracks Schmitz Cz
2. Mickey McDermott Cyw
3. Spec O'Shea D
Pete Ramos C*z
Killebrew (S) 3B3
Ernie Oravetz Pinch Runner (F)
Jerry Snyder Pinch Runner (F)
There is a bit of speed off the bench if needed and Killer as a young player can hit one out. I can't really help the fielding but I have adequate reserves if an injury hits this team.
Let's talk defense, or not.
Defense is 34 total, with massive adjustments to get to 36.
