Elway got his way; Snake and Bell got surprised. Three years in college or a spring playing indy ball await Bell unless he goes the thug Harper’s way to J.C. With possibly a hard slot in place in ’12 Snake may have cost his client $$$$$.

drafted, why didn’t he just send a letter to MLB asking to be made
ineligible?”
What about “Why hire super-agent Scott Boras to rep you?”
Perhaps Boras was getting him in the stable for when he is draft eligible out of college, that is my only thought.
