quick question re: yahoo waivers

Postby swoosh3esq » Fri Sep 09, 2005 6:56 pm

I need to pick up a spot starter for tomorrow in my yahoo h2h. Our league rules give us a finite number of transaction for the playoff week to prevent pitcher churning. My question is: if I pick claim a pitcher who is to come off of waiver tomorrow, will he be on my roster and available to start tomorrow, or will he not be available to me until the day after. I can't waste a transaction by picking up a starter whose start I can't count.

Thanks.

No, the waiver transaction will be completed tomorrow. He won't be active on your roster until the following day.

check your "league settings"...if it says

Weekly Deadline: Daily - Today then that transaction will show for that day and you'll be able to use your pitcher. I think this feature is available only in Plus leagues.

Weekly Deadline: Daily - Tomorrow then your guy won't show on your roster until the day after. So if he clears waivers tonight, he won't show on your team until Sunday.

Hope that clears things up.
