If he is "1 and done", what impact is he making if he can't be added and might not even be playing??


It doesn't sound like he's one and done. Wells is out indefinitely, Wakefield's back has been bugging him, Clement's "arm" has been bugging him, and Pauley just isn't ready and was sent back down. Lester will get a full fledged chance to win a permanent spot in the rotation in my opinion.

When is Lester going to be added to Yahoo???


Who knows... Yahoo is so annoying in this regard. They usually add a guy 1 or 2 days after his first start, but they have yet to add Lester after 3 days and they added Hamels BEFORE his first appearance based solely on the hype (which is why I'm on lookout for Billingsley). I'm still waiting for them to add Tankersley after 5 appearances including a SAVE!

And for normal sized leagues, that is basically StatTracker for everyone.

Exactly. It's a good way for Yahoo to make money and the exact reason they should make timely updates. They've added exactly one new player to their database in the last 9 days.

There's a good chance it'd be just one and done for Lester, but if it turns out that he's ready now, he could make a big impact in fantasy leagues.


Another instance where I don't agree with RotoWorld. How can he make a big impact in fantasy leagues?? He isn't in Yahoo yet. If he is "1 and done", what impact is he making if he can't be added and might not even be playing??


Looks like you read it too fast.

They said it might be one and done but IF NOT then he COULD make an impact. They're hardly going to be claiming he's making an impact when he's not even playing..

Yeah. Cole Hamels is an exception because he actually IS Yahoo!. Most search engines are powered by Google or Yahoo or something. Yahoo is powered by Cole Hamels.
