Belle is very nice for that DL spot.


LOL This is a new position our league doesn't auction. Last season, I had about an entire roster playing that position.

This year has started off wonderfully as well with A. Boone's knee and Uggie not having a home.

Actually, Belle became a free agent at the end of last year. I don't believe that he's signed with anyone yet and I'm not sure if he's going to.

I just checked on CBS and Mookie Wilson is not available to be drafted - I need a replacement for my last pick (there's no Pete Incavilia either).

Pulling a Wagner

Postby johnwesleyharding » Sun Feb 15, 2004 9:14 am

We had a guy (dave wagner) take 20 minutes to draft Deion Sanders the year after he retired so now whenever someone makes a questionable pick or takes a loooong time to choose we call it "pulling a wagner"
