  • SIGN UP FOR Adopt-A-Prospect 2014 HERE

    Adopt-A-Prospect 2014 will start right here... at 9:00 a.m. CST. Again, to adopt a Twins prospect, just put their name in the forum. If no one has already adopted that player, he's yours. As a reminder, on Wednesday at 9:00 a.m. CST, Twins Daily members can adopt a second player. A note will be made on this forum when that can happen.

    AT 9:00 a.m. CST this morning, I will post a message saying "Let the adoptions begin." Once that is there, you can start. I will try to post an update from time to time of who has been adopted by whom. Remember, any Twins minor leaguer can be drafted, players at Rochester, New Britain, Ft. Myers, Cedar Rapids, or at Extended Spring Training.

    Here are the Rules of Twins Daily Adopt-a-Prospect, and a Note that you don't really get to Adopt them, just get to write about them on Twins Daily.



    As we have done here at Twins Daily the last two years, we will be hosting a Twins minor league Adopt-A-Prospect. With a couple alterations, the rules should make for more information shared about more of the minor league teams throughout the farm system.

    Starting at 9:00 Central Time on Tuesday (April 1), you will be able to adopt any Twins minor leaguer (who hasn't already been adopted). Those players can come from either of the four Twins full-season affiliates (Rochester, New Britain, Ft. Myers, Cedar Rapids) or players who will begin the season at Extended Spring Training.

    At 9:00 Central Time on Wednesday, people can adopt a second Twins minor leaguer (Again, only those available).



    Here are the Rules of Adopt-A-Prospect 2014:

    (Note, the actual player adoption will be conducted in another thread "SIGN UP FOR ADOPT A PROSPECT 2014" which will be located in this "Adopt a Prospect 2014" Forum.)

    Rules of Adopt-A-Prospect 2014:


    1) Each Twins prospect can only be adopted once. It will be first-come, first-serve in a new thread here that will be opened at 9:00 a.m. CST on Tuesday morning. On Wednesday morning at 9:00 a.m. CST, Twins Daily readers can adopt a second prospect.

    2) Once you have confirmed that you have that player, you can post a thread. The title of the thread you start should just be that player's name, hyphen - 2014 (example - Miguel Sano - 2014). The first post must be an introduction of the player. The format of the post is up to the individual, but please be sure to get all the important information needed on the player. For Example, Name, Position, Handedness, Drafted/Signed/Acquired (out of where/what round), Previous Stats, etc. Feel free to make it as detailed as you want and feel free to find video. (There are a lot of websites you could link to such as their Baseball-Reference, The Baseball Cube, First Inning, Fan Graphs, MiLB.com, affiliate’s websites, etc.)

    3) After the initial post (and throughout the season), you MUST update the thread AT LEAST once every other week. If you fail to do this, the prospect can be taken away from you. [If a player is inactive due to injury or suspension, this requirement is waived, as appropriate.]

    If you would like to update more often, please feel free. Updates should, at least, include year-to-date numbers for the player. The more information given, however, the better. Brag up your prospect!

    4) Any major event (i.e. Promotion/Demotion/Trade/Perfect Game/multi- hit or HRs in a game...) must be reflected in the thread within a day of the event. Failure to update for this purpose may result in losing your adoptee.

    5) If a player is placed on the 25-man roster, this is wonderful news and you cancontinue that player’s thread. Reward for your player getting to the big leagues is that you can adopt another prospect at that point. Even if the first player is eventually sent back to the minor leagues, you can maintain both prospect threads.

    6) All other rules which are enforced on the main board will be enforced here.

    If you have any questions, please feel free to ask here.
