** 2009 ADOPT A TIGER SELECTION EXTRAVAGANZA **

Recommended Posts

Granderson is standing by, ready to hear his name called.

How long does the AAT usually last for? I cant seem to remember how long last years went.

Finished last week ;-)

Looking at last years it started on or about the 20th and the regular picks finished on Feb 8th. I remember it as lasting about three times as long as that actually :-)

I think in complete Detroit Lions fashion, someone in the top 5 should pick either Mike Hessman, Eddie Bonine or Chris Lambert because whenever the Tigers sign one or two relievers, one or more of these guys is going to have to be removed from the 40 man. Of course it would be more intriguing if another MLB team claimed them too.

I'm not sure if I want this year's to get moving quickly or to stall somewhere early in the draft.

I always love that first 12-15 hour period where no one makes a pick, and the posts start to get a little irritated, and then people start to look at when said drafter was last around, then contemplate e-mailing, knocking on his/her door, etc.

That is kind of amusing.

FWIW, I might be interested in a trade if somebody wants a 25-man roster guy in exchange for a well-researched pick of a good minor league middle infielder. Only problem is that I'm already considering a few minor leaguers....

This is Brian Bluhms sister (estrepe1).

First thank you to all of you for giving Brian the first pick in the draft. It means a lot that you guys still remember and honor him. My family really appreciates all you do and have done for us. Thank you. You have a wonderful community here and we are fortunate Brian was apart of it and still is in spirit. We miss him very much as I know you guys do too.

So without me babbling on further (which I am good at…):

In honor of my little brother estrepe1 (Brian Bluhm) I will pick Curtis Granderson as his draft pick.

Bc I am bad at stats…hahaha…jj04 (Justin Jones) my husband and Brians brother in law will help keep up with stats. That way I know it is updated and correct…

Thank you guys/gals and we love all of you. It warms my heart to know you guys care and love us so much.

Way to go Angela. I have Wendy and my shirt ready for Spring training. I have to find out if I can put Brian's AAT on them.

No sign of JR, but hey stay tuned! Do remember this takes a few weeks.

Or go watch some football for a couple of weeks so I can pick next. :happy:

Please check in every couple of days, more often if you are due up soon.

If you need to send me a proxy pick list or drop out of the draft, please

let me know with a PM and I'll take care of business. Thanks all.

Hard to send a proxy list when your at 111. I was considering making a list of 111 players to pick from but as I started to I could see thats a bad idea.

Im hoping that after pick 110 that the Tigers sign someone and I can select them. :glasses:

I give JR five minutes more and then he gets put to the end of the line. :pirate:

Milk the suspense all you can!
