The fact that he is still available tells everything you need to know about your league.

Don't worry, Wells is nowhere near a sure thing and there's a solid chance you won't be punching yourself in the face at season's end. I do, of course, agree with everyone else in that dropping him after only two weeks for (a) mediocre undrafted players(-s) was foolish

no no, the mediocre players were on my team first, I dumped him for Ensberg, who has a strange hold over me, despite his awful performance last year...It was Bernie Williams the year before that...

I'd just like to continue to state my personal hatred for Vernon Wells. Fantasywise I drafted him across the board again because I thought he was extrememly undervalued, but he killed me last year and is hurting me this year again. Of course, I benched him today because he's mentioned how bad his ribs hurt, and what does he do, he goes 3/5 when the Red Sox start Schilling. Damn him, damn that man.
...Boston papers now and then suffer a sharp flurry of arithmetic on this score; indeed, for Williams to have distributed all his hits so they did nobody else any good would constitute a feat of placement unparalleled in the annals of selfishness. -Updike

Patience, patience. He'll hit 30 HR this year.

Turnaround or lucky game? It was against Schilling, so hopefully it's a sign of good to come.


I'd have expected that, I just dropped him!! :-D

He's trying to lure me into picking him back up...


Why would you ever drop a player like Vernon Wells?

8-o


People that drop great players help me win leagues. Please by all means drop them. :-)

Also because I have Edmonds, Wilkerson, Nady and Tavares taking up my OF slots and am willing to gamble at this point that Nady is likely to finish > Wells for me.

I don't see it as being that big of a deal. I looked at the team and he was the most expendable guy. Voila. :-°


are u joking??

I bet you dropped Santana last April or May also huh?

It's two weeks into the season..Man where are all you guys when we need to fill spots in our league's..hahahaha B-)


Funny...He is such a bum, but just went 3 for 5 on a day he faced Curt Schilling..hmmmmmmm... :-°

Is there anyone who could be had, at such a reduced rate, with so much potential, and still only 27 years old?...I still agree with him, and think 30-30 is possible, with the new manager in Toronto..(They are gonna score a lot of runs this year, and surprise a lot of teams)

He has always been a slow starter..I suggest you go get him in any league you don't have him, before his price goes back to where it belongs... ;-D
