My Yahoo Watch List, who's on yours?

Postby CBMGreatOne » Thu Mar 25, 2004 7:28 pm

I don't know how many of you have noticed this new feature in Yahoo's free fantasy baseball, but I think it's going to come in handy pretty nicely for the upcoming season. You simply select watch next to a given player and you will be able to monitor that players statistics along with all of your other watched players on a separate page. Anyhow, here's who I have on the list. Any glaring omissions?

Bats:

Eric Hinske 3B- rebound from sophomore slump?

Ryan Klesko 1B, OF- can he come back like 02?

Josh Phelps DH- power sleeper

Joe Crede 3B- second half a sign of things to come?

Paul Konerko 1B- looking for a rebound

Brad Fullmer 1B- cleanup in Texas

Craig Wilson 1B, OF, C- multiple position eligibility, and power

Bobby Crosby SS- the next big thing at SS?

Jason Bay OF- big time sleeper


Pitchers:

Francisco Rodriguez RP- can Percival stay healthy?

Jose Valverde RP- can Mantei stay healthy?

Mike DeJean RP- can Julio perform?

Justin Speier RP- will he win Toronto's closer job?

Curtis Leskanic RP- can MacDougal perform?

Aquilino Lopez RP- will he win Toronto's closer job?

Oliver Perez SP- Ks machine

Cliff Lee SP- is he ready to be a viable fantasy option?

Darren Dreifort SP- probably too early to watch, but lots of Ks

Jose Lima SP- was his run in July a fluke?

AJ Burnett SP- when healthy will he return to form?

Eric Milton SP- Success in Philly?

Tony Armas SP- healthy year this year?

Ryan Wagner RP- Graves has to lose his job sooner or later

Edwin Jackson SP- top rookie pitcher


That's my watch list, who's on yours?

I like this feature, alot

It helps so you don't have to search for the 5 players your interested in, all the time, they are all right there on one list.

I haven't made a list yet, but most of the ones on your list are already taken in my league.

Interesting, is your league deeper than normal, or is this just too many good players on the WW?

Its a 12-team league with Cafe People, so not much slips past these guys.

Lol. yeah, I think I'm in that league too, afraid to admit it though. As Pocket Donkeys I've thrown my name into a great deal of controversy, involving you I might add.
