The 2008 Adopt-A-Tiger Selection Extravanganza!

Recommended Posts




WELCOME to the 2008 Official Adopt-A-Tiger Draft selection thread!

This year, the #1 draft position has been awarded to estrepe1 (Brian Bluhm), and I will have the honor of selecting Curtis Granderson on his behalf.

We will then continue with #2 (DJHutch'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 two to three weeks to complete.

This post will be updated below with everyone's choices, so you can check here 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.

WhiteCapWendy will be assisting me with running the draft this year. She will have the ability to "hack" into this post for updates, and she'll help me out with monitoring the draft clock, who's on deck, etc.

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.

Brian Bluhm (estrepe1) has been awarded the #1 selection in this year's AAT, and on his behalf we select:

Curtis Granderson, Center Fielder


Curtis' Tribute To Brian: http://blog.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=blog.view&FriendID=211405965&blogMonth=4&blogDay=17&blogYear=2007

Some recent information on Curtis, courtesy Wikipedia:

Granderson became the Tigers' starting center fielder for the 2006 season after beating out then teammate Nook Logan for the position during spring training. From the start of his major league career in 2004, Granderson had the longest errorless streak by a position player to start his career since Dave Roberts went 205 games from 1999-2003. He ended up hitting 2 home runs during the playoffs.

Granderson is considered one of the nicest players in the Major Leagues. On Easter Sunday 2007 Granderson pulled out a bag filled with over 100 autographed Easter eggs filled with candy and passed them out to young fans in Kansas City.

Although Granderson was not listed on the 2007 All-Star Game ballot, due to the Tigers' decision to put Gary Sheffield as an outfielder on the ballot, he still received 376,033 write-in votes, the most write-in votes for any player in the Majors.

Granderson was named the American League Player of the Week on July 16, 2007, the first time he had won the award. During the week ending July 15, 2007, Granderson hit .500 (8-16) with two doubles, a triple, and a home run. Granderson slugged .938, drove in two runs, scored seven runs, and had fifteen total bases during Detroit's four-game series at Seattle.

On August 7, 2007, Granderson became only the second player in franchise history to have at least 30 doubles, 15 triples, 15 home runs, and 10 stolen bases in a single season when he hit a double in a game against the Tampa Bay Devil Rays. The other Tiger to accomplish this feat was Charlie Gehringer in 1930.

On September 7th, 2007, Granderson became the 6th member all-time of baseball's exclusive 20-20-20 Club. Granderson joined the 20-20-20 club with Kansas City's George Brett (1979), Willie Mays of the New York Giants (1957), Cleveland's Jeff Heath (1941), St. Louis' Jim Bottomley (1928), and Frank Schulte of the Chicago Cubs (1911).

On September 9th, 2007 Granderson stole his 20th base of the season and joined Willie Mays and Frank "Wildfire" Schulte as the only players in major league history to reach 20 doubles, 20 triples, 20 home runs, and 20 stolen bases in a season, a feat since accomplished by the Philadelphia Phillies' Jimmy Rollins.

at pick #144, and this rate of speed, can I just make my pick now for the AAT 2009 Extravaganza?

actually this is moving quickly compared to last year. If I remember correctly after two days there were only about 4-5 picks made.

Don't worry, Grilli won't fall past the 65th pick. When he replaces Jones as closer, you will all be jealous.

Please tell me this was made as a sarcastic remark, please.

Can I make a draft day trade? I will trade my 65th pick and a cold beverage for the current #4 pick.
I'll give you #13, if that beer is 72 ounces, exactly 32F, and here in time to root against the Packers whilst consuming it!

I don't ask for much, do I ??

PS - For those new to this, yes you may trade your draft picks!
