Long hair freaky people need not apply. Well, guess I'm not qualified. Okay, here goes!

1. You get a 24 hour window to make your pick. A pick immediately triggers the next picker's 24 hours. Plan on this lasting a few weeks. We are just killing time here.

2. If your 24 hours expires, next person goes on their 24 hour clock (but you can still make your pick at any time)

3. If you failed to login to MTS within the last seven days, then no 24 hour clock for you !!!

4. If your AAT is released, retires, or other tragic fate, pick another one.

5. If your AAT is traded, you have first choice of any of the new players from that transaction. Really, we promise!

6. Creativity in picks is certainly cool - but be prepared to defend, nuture, bolster, support, bleed for, tout, encourage, promote, brag on, adore, and charma-shower your AAT for the entire year. You shall be his/her mouthpiece, Guido.

7. Sharing cool photos, bios, reports, stat updates, sig lines, or Sparky-esque hype of your AAT is highly encouraged!

8. Have fun - or I shall stab you with my toothpick.

9. No whining about pace/speed of the draft - we have many weeks of room.

10. Check post #1 of this thread every couple of days to see if you are up !! Those napping through their draft pick are gonna miss out on primo pickings!

11. Have fun - this time I really mean it !!

12. You may PM me or others a pre-ordered proxy draft list, if you choose. If you decide to pass or trade your pick position, just let me know!

With the first selection, on behalf of Brian I have the honor of taking this promising young hurler:

Beau Burrows, SP


Recent stats: Beau Burrows Stats, Highlights, Bio | MiLB.com Stats | The Official Site of Minor League Baseball

Well, here's the thing..................What if he doesn't pitch a Perfect Game - does he have to take off the jersey? That's pretty arrogant, calling a shot like that.

Year in, year out, he is without a doubt the most consistent and valuable Tiger. He is always in the top 1% of performers at his position, and I can't remember him EVER taking a pitch off.

I am honored, nay, DELIGHTED to select, with the 5th pick in the draft, the voice of Tigers baseball, the voice of summer itself....

SacBunt has been away a couple weeks, so I'll go with my pick (thx titus for trading down!)

As you may have guessed - I shall let 'er ride !! Is this the year my big Okie finally makes the Show?

I'll be pulling for this sweet swinger from the windy plains ...
