    Default The 2012 Adopt A Tiger Draft Extravaganza




    Adopt-A-Tiger
    2012




    WELCOME to the 2012 Official Adopt-A-Tiger Draft selection thread!

    This year, the #1 draft position has been awarded to estrepe1 (Brian Bluhm), and we will make the selection on his behalf.

    We will then continue with #2 (casey04's) selection. #3 is free to pick immediately after the second player has been selected, and so forth. Each draft position is given a 24 hour clock for making a selection. If that person's clock expires, the next position is then free to draft, and their 24-hour clock begins. If you miss your turn, you aren't disqualified. You can still make a pick at any time, but your pickings won't be as good!

    Please make an effort to check in every day or two, and remember that you don't have to wait 24 hours before you pick - let's keep this moving quickly for everyone. The draft will probably take at least three weeks to complete.

    This post will be updated below with everyone's choices, so check here often to see if your pick is coming up soon.

    First 25 picks will be conducted as outlined above. Then we go into Shaggy's patented "turbo mode":

    Picks 26-50: Once pick #25 is made both picks 26 and 27 will be on the clock. This will speed things up a bit, however still "protect" the draft position to an extent. Once one of the two on the clock makes a selection, #28 goes on the clock, and so forth. Once again each member on the clock has a 24 hour window for making a pick. If your clock expires, you can still make a pick at any time from the remaining available players.

    Picks 51 - finish: Once picks #49 AND #50 are made picks 51, 52 and 53 will all be put on the clock.

    From that point on, three members will be "on the clock" at once, to pick on a first come first served basis. Again they will be on a 24 hour clock.

    After the initial draft phase, we'll begin the "free for all" phase, for those who missed out on registering for the lottery. You can pick one of the undrafted "leftovers", first come first served!

    If something comes up in "real life", your draft position is coming up, and you know you might be absent, please feel free to PM me a ranked list of players, and I will draft for you by proxy. Also, if you decide not to participate, please PM me as soon as possible and I'll remove you from the draft order. Or if you just want a free-for-all pick instead, just let me know!

    You may draft any player at any level. Others affiliated with the Tigers CAN be drafted, but you might find it more fun and rewarding to adopt and follow a player. Many here prefer to draft young prospects, and update us on their progress throughout the season. And when making your selection, please consider giving some information/scouting on your selection, and why you selected him.

    Now let's refer to the Book of ShaggyRy. Let's call this "Your Adopted Tiger 101":

    Once you draft a player, you've adopted him. what does that mean?? Really nothing. This is just a little thing we've done around here for a few years now in the winter doldrums when Spring training is on the horizon to get us talking baseball again.

    If your player has a good year, it's because of you and you have bragging rights, and if they stink it up it is your fault. During the season in the game threads and such your affiliations could be brought up and you could be called on the carpet if your adopted player screws up. You have to defend them at all costs, against all comers. He is your baby, you have to protect him.

    Minor league adoptions should look to keep us updated on your selected player throughout the season in the Minor League forum. Keep track of their numbers and let us know when he's on a hot streak or if he's been promoted to a higher league. You can use the teams official websites to find such information, as well we usually have Tiger Organization minor league stats posted in the Minor Leauge forum as well as box scores posted as well. Microline and Co. does a good job over there and not all of us are minor league freaks, so even if you know nothing about the minor leagues and get "stuck" with a minor league player, check it out over there and learn something about your player and the up and comers in the Tigers Farm.

    Last season some members decided to use their sig lines to keep others updated on their adoptees, a practice I hope to see continued for the most part.

    On behalf of estrepe1, I have the honor of making a pick for him.
    This young man was the Tigers' top pick in the 2011 amateur entry draft, #76 overall, after his Junior season at Arkansas.
    He'll be a West Michigan Whitecap this year.

    I'm already thinking it's too bad they don't get moved to the bottom of the list.......Some folks aren't as obsessed with the Tigers as me, I suppose.

    Or, maybe they just have a life. It's a long ways to #105.

    I was hoping casey04 would help make my decision easier. I will take MIGUEL CABRERA as my AAT. I'm hoping it's the year he breaks out and gets the respect he deserves in the American League earning a starting All-Star spot, Silver Slugger, AL MVP, World Series Championship and World Series MVP...among other things.

    With my pick in the 2012 Motown Sports Adopt-A-Tiger draft, the Sacbunt team will select the heterochromatic one himself, Max Scherzer.



    Those eyes still freak out my kids, so that is worthy of a draft selection.

    The reason I don't sign up for this is that I cannot predict I'll be around enough to follow through should I get a high pick.

    The rotation went quickly.

    Would have gone Turner if it weren't for trade speculation...

    I really wanted Scherzer this year.

    I didn't pick Turner for that reason.

    Should have told me, I would have grabbed him for you and traded!

    It was between Fister, Turner, Avila, and Boesch for me.

    Remember, if your AAT is traded, you get first choice of Matt Garza er I mean the players received in return!

    My final three were: Porcello, Coke and Turner.

    Even with a high selection number this year, I had the pleasure of watching a lot of our younger talent. I can see several viable posssibilities. For our new folks, I won the first year I played and it has been all downhill since then. But we are here for fun and DaYooper gives us this preseason energy boost.

    Total shock! I have been buried the last two days and was in shock to see my position so high. I just emailed Yoop to make my selection and apologize to everyone, but it is just as easy to punch in my pick: Victor Martinez! I will try to get back later to give more information and a better presentation. Apologies again and thank you Yoop for all of your hard work!

    With the #13 pick of the 2012 Adopt-A-Tiger Draft, I select:

    Drew Smyly, LHP
    DOB: 06/13/1989
    H: 6'3" W: 190
    2010 2nd Round Draft pick

    2011 Statistics:

    Lakeland (A): 7-3, 2.58 ERA, 1.145 WHIP, 77 K, 21 BB, 8.6 K/9
    Erie (AA): 4-3, 1.18 ERA, 1.029 WHIP, 53 K, 15 BB, 10.4 K/9
    Drew Smyly Minor League Statistics & History - Baseball-Reference.com


    Scouting Report: A 2nd round pick in the 2010 Amateur Draft out of Arkansas, Smyly wasted no time in proving that he belonged. He started his season at Advanced-A Lakeland, but ended the season in Double-A Erie sporting a 1.18 ERA, giving up 6 earned runs and walking 15 and striking out 53 hitters in 45 innings pitched. He got it done with a low-90s fastball and advanced command and control of his curveball and change-up. Due to this season’s efforts Smyly was named Tigers’ Minor League Pitcher of the Year.
