Official Adopt-a-Tiger Draft Order and Selection page

Recommended Posts

The day is here, and the rules have sort of changed. I was going to assign a pick per day, however that would probably take too long and people would lose interest and that's no fun. Instead the rules will be that you can pick as soon as the player listed immediately ahead of you makes his selection. Each pick will have one full days grace before he loses his spot and the draft will continue with the next person in line now on the clock. If a person misses his draft window, he can pick ANYTIME after. Hopefully this doesn't drag out, I don't suspect it will early as many of the high draft position members are here basically every day. It oculd drag out a bit near the end, but the days grace should move things relatively quickly.

I've decided that we'll go by total number of posts. It's not a popularity contest, not by any stretch or Biff would be last(or at least behind me), but gives the active members certain rub in this instance. There isn't a way I know of to seperate Tiger Forum posts from total posts, but I probably wouldn't use it anyways. If you don't like your ranking, stick around and add your two cents on occasion and you'll have a better spot next year(there's incentive for ya :dead: ) I didn't like the idea of ranking it in terms of dates joined because there is some guys who've been registered for awhile that have low post numbers and frankly those voyeurs freak me out.

It was like looking through you old high school yearbook going through the members list ranking the members. There was a lot of names that I remember that just disappeared, guys with 500-600 posts who were pretty regular contributors who vanished like a fart in the wind. Anyways with out further ado, here is the draft order:

*Note* Registration is closed, however if you signed on and I missed you, I apologize for my mistake and I'll add you in to your deserved spot. After the draft is complete any members who failed to register can play-along, picking from our table scraps. If members no longer want to take part PM me and I'll eliminate you or simply "pass" when it is your turn to select. Please don't just let your time run out as it will stall the process.

Who can be drafted: Any player at any level can be drafted. Unlike previous years, there will be no major league and minor league portion of the draft. Tiger coaches, grounds crew, front office personal CAN be drafted, but I'd rather not see it happen as there is more than enough players to choose from, considering there is only 49 members taking part and the Tigs have a 40-man roster and there are many minor leaguers we are all familiar with.

Along with your selection, I think it would be a good idea to give a little background on your selection and why you selected him. Brief scouting reports for minor league draftees would be nice as well.

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 th 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 seaosn in the game threads and such your affiliations couldbe 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 top 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 does a good job overthere 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 overthere and learn something about your player and the up and comers in the Tigers Farm.

Heres a pretty extensive list of I believe every player in the Tiger Organization. There could be some missing or no longer with the organization, but it looks pretty current and up to date.

**Note**- Seeing as though the previous player list was out of date, I've adpoted the list provided by Edman.**

As players are selected, I'll eliminate their names from this list.

This draft is getting complicated now. I don't know if I can handle all that.

You are late so you go on the bottom of the list. You get Kurt Airoso.

Just a suggestion. It will take a long time for each person to draft in order. What you might do is have everyone in the top 10 submit a top 10 list of who they'd like to adopt...if they are in the top 20, they should formulate a top 20 list...etc. Then, set up a day for Adopt-a-Tiger drafting to be closed...and take the #1 player from Oblong...then if Shabba drafts #2 and has chosen the same player at #1...take his #2 choice...and so on. I've done this before and it has been very successful...plus, no one will be upset because their turn was missed.

What do you think?

BTW, thanks for all your work on this Shaggy...I'm almost surprised I am on the edge of the top 20. I might actually get someone I want!

That isn't the entire list either. You can pick managers, coaches and even mascots if you want. It's not like this really means much. It's just fun.

I'm seriously thinking about picking Lance Parrish.

I'd like to add one rule. No one can adopt Kenon Ronz. He is reserved solely for the selection of "The Ronz", our resident alien.

Even though I didn't sign up I should automatically be assigned Brandon Inge. . . or Nook Logan.

Last year I adopted Jason Johnson's insulin pump. I should have adopted his blister.

There goes my hope of having him back again this year. He was a great adoption for me last year! If you take him from me do I have to pay some kind of child support or something?

California Dreaming,

He was my adopted Tiger for a few years so you took him from me.

Seriously Parrish was my favorite Tiger when I was a kid and I really have never picked another "favorite" Tiger. So when I select I guess he has to be my "favorite" Tiger. But then again it would be fun to pick someone who could do something on the field well or screw up.

If I do that I probably won't pick one of the better players. What fun is that. You want to pick someone who can give you great days or bad days. It's easy to say Pudge is your Tiger. It's harder to say (thumping your chest) Shane Loux is your Tiger.:classic:

just because i dont like the way the "number of posts" idea alienates the rest of us who tend to "lurk" here more then post.

quantity doesnt always mean quality.

Yeah, this is probably my fault. I included Oblong becasue he posted a remark in the sign-up thread. The remark didn't actually say he wanted to take part, actually it didn't say anything. I just assumed that since he took the time to post in the thread and didn't say it was a stupid idea or an unfair idea that he wanted to take part. He's been around the boards today and hasn't made a choice, so he probably had no desire to play. I've PM'd him but he hasn't gotten back to me yet one way or the other. Hopefully Shabba and the rest who signed up show better interest and kick this thing off right tomorrow.

If any here are no longer interested PM me and I'll take you off the list.

Jeremy Bonderman, selected first overall by Oblong. Great things are expected from the 22 yr old right hander, if not this season definitely in 2006. Bonderman had a roller coaster 2004 campaign, though showed flashes of dominance and closed out the year strong after the coaching staff dumbed it down for him posting a 2.53 ERA in his final 6 starts, striking out 42 and walking only 14 in 42 innings. He is expected to round into a true rotation ace the likes we haven't seen in Detroit in many years.

Shabba4Detroit is now on the clock.
