Why can't I find Frank Thomas in Yahoo??

I noticed that he's hit 4 homers in the last 6 games and went to pick him up but he's not in the FA or taken players lists.

I think I know the answer, he's listed as being a utility player in my league...hence, if your league doesnt play with the utility spot in your lineups...then he, and anyone else that only qualifies as a utility player will not exist in your league because you'd have no place to put him into your lineup.

he shows up in my leagues. does your league have a util position? he is only eligible at util/dh so if you only have 1b he probably wouldnt show up.

We use IF and OF positions in our league configuration. I guess that that's not the same as DH/UTIL :~( :~( :~( :~(

Hey, if you wait long enough he might be in the DL position soon, so you can sorta add and watch him there. Not much in the line of stats, though, being at the DL position... ;)

his agent decided that he should be known as CWS-Util, rather than Frank Thomas (SFOF J/k!!)! :-D
