Mock Organization Diary #1 Texas Rangers, Minor League Ball Community Mock Draft 2012
Welcome Rangers’ fans and supporters to the 2012 Minor League Ball Community Mock Draft , I will be playing the role of your team’s scouting director this year. Now full disclosure before we begin. As you may have discerned from my handle/screen-name (JaysFanToronto), I am a huge Blue Jays fan, from Toronto. However that doesn’t mean that I don’t have rooting interests in other teams, as I am first and foremost a baseball fan. The Rangers are one of the organizations that I most admire, and this is one of the reason’s I volunteered to represent them. Their front office operates aggressively and in a non-conventional, non-predictable manner, in acquiring and assessing talent and it’s hard to argue with the results. They employ the type of strategy and philosophy that I would like my hometown team (the Blue Jays) to emulate, and one which I hope we can approach this draft with together.
The Community Mock Draft takes place on Saturday May 26th at 12:00 PM noon, central time and will run through to the end of the third round. Teams will select in the order that they select in the real draft, and will be expected to operate under a realistic budget (in accordance with MLB imposed bonus pools and slot allotments).
