cbs sportsline sucks. What a clunky unwieldy interface! Yahoo is the way to go.

Unless you're in one of the few league's without waivers, it makes no difference to know immediately when a player gets listed on Yahoo. If you have a two-day waiver period that gives you 48 hours to get your claim in and the rest is up to waiver priority.

I didn't think that many leagues had no waivers. Is it more than I think?

Fifteen players just added to Yahoo.

Neither Hirsh nor Garza were amongst the new crop of players.

Eligibility

Postby kingman33 » Thu Aug 10, 2006 9:14 am

Yahoo basis a players eligibilty on the amount the player has played.Batters need either 5 Games Started or 10 Games Played at a position to gain eligibility. Pitchers need 3 Starts to gain SP eligibility, 5 Relief Appearances to gain RP eligibility. Each number displayed is a count-down, so for instance, "5" means "five games remaining to gain eligibility." Basically a player cannot be eligible until he has earned playing time first.

this is correct for current players but not for up and coming players...i picked up hamels on May 15 after he had only one start and i feel garza will probably become available at about the same time (between his first and second starts)

Kingman, unfortunately, you're retardedly wrong. Call-ups don't have to play jack, they are immediately eligible at the posiition they played in the minors. So once Garza is up, he's gonna be listed as a SP. Show me where there is a call-up that you cannot put into your lineup because he hasn't started pitching in 3 games or playing in 5!

I'm in plenty of leagues with no waivers, so...
