2012 Season

2012 Draft Lottery Events

Like last year, we will use "draft lottery events" during the regular season to determine draft lottery position for next year. There is one twist this year: we will SKIP a few games. How many games? Depends on the score of the home opener. Total runs scored in the home opener determines how many games get skipped. If the final score is 5-2, we'll skip 7 games and start in the 8th.

When one of the draft lottery events happens AT TARGET FIELD, the member who originally drafted that game is assigned the next available lottery position. Here is the list of events:
As in 2010 and 2011, we will use "draft lottery events" during the regular home season to determine draft lottery position for 2013. We will be SKIPPING a number of games at the beginning of the season, determined by total runs scored in the home opener. Since the home opener final was 5-1, then the 1st 6 games are skipped and the 7th game (Mon 4/23) will be the first one eligible for draft lottery events. 

Here are the 2012 Draft Lottery Events:

Executed Draft Lottery Events

#1 - Chad 4/27, 1st triple by any Twins hitter (Joe Mauer 1st inning)
#2 - Mike 4/28, 1st rainout
#3 - Bruce 5/8, 1st Ryan Doumit HR 
#4 -  Bill F 5/9, 1st Josh Willingham HR 
#5 -  Andy 5/29, 1st walk-off HR by a Twins hitter (Willingham)
#6 -  Sean 6/30 (game 2), 1st Chris Parmelee home run  

Remaining Draft Lottery Events (haven't occurred or didn't count) 

  • 1st Jamey Carroll home run
  • 1st complete game pitched [7/27 Diamond, 8/27 Hendriks didn't count]
  • 1st game in which a Twins batter hits a grand slam
  • 1st Twins win by 10 runs or more [7/16, 8/27 didn't count]
  • 1st game in which a Twins batter hits for the cycle
  • 1st game in which the Twins get 20 or more hits [7/16 didn't count]
  • 1st game in which the Twins score 20 or more runs
  • 1st inside-the-park home run by a Twins hitter
  • 1st game in which a Twins batter hits 2 home runs [Plouffe 7/1, Willingham 7/13 didn't count]
  • 1st game in which a Twins batter hits 3 home runs
  • 1st triple play (Twins on defense)
Order of priority
If multiple draft lottery events occur in a single game, the first one to occur counts and the others remain in play. Example: Casilla hits a triple in the 3rd inning, Morneau hits a grand slam in the 5th, and Pavano pitches a complete game. "1st triple" occurs first, so the member that drafted that game is assigned the highest available draft lottery spot. "1st grand slam" and "complete game pitched" remain in play.
 
 
Tie-breakers
First tie-breaker is the final record of the member's 10 drafted games. Second tie-breaker is random.org.
 
Suggested Draft Lottery Events (for consideration in 2013)
  • 1st comeback win of X runs or more (5? 6? 7?)
  • Successfully stealing home (any Twins baserunner)
