Yahoo Question

Postby MookieNJ » Sat Apr 19, 2003 2:29 pm

I'm in two different private Yahoo leagues.

Jesse Foppert was added to the game earlier this week. In one of my leagues, his waiver period ended today and he is now a free agent, and in the other, it has yet to end and looks like it will last 'til tomorrow.

How did this happen? Nobody could have dropped him, as he wasn't eligible to be on anyone's roster until today (or tomorrow, I guess).

The big problem is that in the league where he is a free agent, I have plenty of pitching depth and no room on my bench, so I won't be picking him up. In the league where he is on waivers, I definitely have a bench spot ready for him but I don't want to blow my relatively high waiver priority (4) on a guy that most everyone in my league has probably never heard of, and if they have, probably won't put in a claim ...

well then just wait till tomorrow so you dont have to waste your wavier spot.

and maybe it did that because the laegue settings for each were diferent. maybe, i have no idea.

the difference in availability would stem from your league settings... theres a setting that says "days players on waivers" one league must have a longer waiver period...
