That's a good point. I probably would steal Pronk. B-)

Well, if emb0lus were here, he'd be in. I must have picked a day when he's fishing with his kids or something. thomasps3 had a couple other ideas for a replacement, if we don't hear from either of these guys soon we'll start looking at other candidates.

Can't believe we've been stuck here this long. Sorry everybody. :-/ Trying to get us moving but want to be fair to all involved.

Welcome back EmbOlus! I'm looking forward to beating you this year!

We don't have to restart the draft...but if Embolus wants to trade Utley for another player taken after him, It should be aloud

I'm speaking hypothetically....of course. :-D

Wow, just heard from johnsamo. He had an emergency and is in the hospital, hoping to get out by Monday. I learned my lesson last year with oscar that sometimes folks have good reasons to go missing. In fairness to emb0lus and in the interest of time, we need to keep moving. Sucks to have to do that.

We wish you well buddy.

wow, that sucks! I can't take his team away from him now, especially due to his obvious committment to the league by contacting TheRock to let him know he can't draft from his hospital bed!

Mighty big of you ;-D

We'll talk about it next week when he's better. For now I'm sure he wouldn't mind if you continued on in his stead.

I was afraid it was something like that. I enjoy the draft and look forward to it...but it is forever linked to the worst event in my life.

Fortunalty, I was able to get back to the cafe before the draft started last year.


johnsamo - my thoughts are with you.


Rock, you were being pushed hard by all of us to get this thing moving, we all share in the responsibility of moving on.

Right or wrong it is what we had to do.

I think embOlus should continue to draft as well.
