Anyone notice Yahoo's "probable pitcher" tool?

You spot-start fanatics are gonna love it.
I just noticed it tonight. In the player pull-down, you can select "P-(probable)" and get all of the available pitchers who are projected to start the next day.
It seems to me that people who churn through their pitchers ought to at least have to work for it a little ...

They must have just made that option in the last few hours because it wasn't there in the morning when I last checked on.

Cool feature..especially if you need a spot starter for a win and a few Ks on the last day of an weekly matchup.

i'm torn on it. It does make it infinitely easier to assess spot starters but I dont think it needs to be much easier. Some people already abuse the spot starters. Just as a side note, we use BB,L,ER so no body spot starts too much unless its the last couple days of the matchup.

whatever tho, I definitely used it for that benson start.

Yeah, I just noticed it. Could be good at the end of the roto season.

I miss the future schedule function where you could see who your player faces in the upcoming week.

It's still there, just sort them by opponents.
