The 2008 Adopt-A-Tiger Selection Extravanganza!

Recommended Posts

NO resemblence of Higgy at all!! He was with us for 4 months...NO HIGGY stuff!!!

Good to hear that! Although, I'm not ashamed to admit Higgy was my favorite Tiger for many years (not a deep candidate pool back then). Glad to have Mr. Ott on board the Gatos bus.

Any recommended player photo sources for NYP, GCL, DSL, or VSL? Picking at #158 I'm guessing finding some of these younger players might be pretty tough.

Flickr.com is a good source for photos, though I don't know about those leagues specifically. Some very talented posters on this board have many outstanding photos on that site from West Michigan and Lakeland. This board itself has some great photos - give it a shot with the search engine.

Nice Catch!

Thanks for the offer to phone me Roger. I got on here anyways with my phone. I hope I get internet soon, as I am sick of typing with my thumbnails. I'm going to the library tomorrow to pay bills.

Or head to Tigertown and take advantage of their wireless, assuming they have it on. Fantasy camp in the morning till early afternoon. I could pick it up inside Joker or at the picnic tables by the infield complex. Also Munn Park (the main park on Main St. by Molly McGuires has city WiFi.) And you are always welcome here.

With the 121st pick, I'm happy to select Eddie Bonine. He pitched for the U of Nevada in Reno. The Tigers got him in the minor league phase of the Rule V draft from the Padres. It was good scouting and projection because his numbers have blossomed in the Tiger's system and got him an Arizona Fall League invitation. The last two drafts I got Ryan Ludwick and Brandon Watson, so I'm hoping Eddie Bonine will break camp this spring and still remain a member of the Tiger organization. I was really hoping he would still be around at 121.

James and Jordan are a HOOT in that Wendy!

James is quieter (got roped into that picture), but Jordan, after giving me funny looks the first few days with the team, became one of my greatest showoffs. I could always count on a huge smile anytime my camera was aimed anywhere in his direction.

Since GalenSpartan and norm25 have picked, I think that I am on the clock now at 124.

I select D'Andrea Vaughn

Vaughn, who turned 19 in September 2007, is a 5’11”, 190 pound outfielder who bats and throws righthanded. He was acquired by the Tigers with the 40th-round selection in the June 2007 draft, having previously played for Tavares High School in Florida. When asked on draft day if the Tigers planned to offer more than 40th-round slot money to Vaughn, GM Dave Dombrowski replied “Does a hobby horse have a wooden knob?”

Vaughn reported to the Gulf Coast League in late July and appeared in 12 games. In 32 plate appearances his rate statistics were .167 / .265 / .233; but the Tigers organization thinks highly enough of him to have invited him to the fall Instructional League.

Vaughn is likely to return to the GCL to open the 2008 season.
