Yahoo multiple waivers

Postby Danimal » Sun Jul 23, 2006 12:17 pm

Several people in one of my yahoo leagues have expressed a dislike for the waivers process when a team is seeking more than one player on waivers at the same time. More than one team has claimed to have screwed themselves on waiver pick-ups because they didn't understand the details.

Here's an example:
Waiver 1: R. Cedeño for S. Hillenbrand pending until Jul 26
Waiver 2: K. Ray for B. Wickman pending until Jul 25

Under the above scenario, given the waiver priority and the date of the waivers, am I blocking myself out of a chance of getting Wickman since he is my second choice, but occurs before my first choice?

If anyone has some insights, that would be great.

what you need to keep in mind is that priority only actually matters for multiple claims that take place on the same day. otherwise, they just process in the order that the players being claimed come off of waivers

Why can't they just swap the priority??

It works like this:

Priority goes to the first day the waiver would be completed.
If you have multiple waivers, then it works according to what you set.

In your case, it will take the 25th first. If you get it, your priority goes back to last in your league. If you really want the one on the 26th, you need to cancel the one for the 25th. This makes sense, because someone could put in a claim on the last day. The system can't look at the waiver for the 26th and know for sure if you have gotten it or not.
