Lets all relax on the name calling. :-°


As far as Garza being in yahoo, that is totally up to yahoo when they want to add him. Hopefully it will be done before his 2nd start, but before you start complaining please remember yahoo is a free service. :-°

Like I mentioned earlier in this thread, I had Hamels picked up the DAY he got his FIRST start....My comissioner waived the waiver waiting period. But still, Yahoo had him available for some reason. I'm gonna guess it was because he was just dominating AAA and enough people wanted him in the player universe.

I'm telling you, email Yahoo, and he'd be available. I emailed three times. They actually "claim" to have a system, but the system doesn't explain why they just plain call some people up without a start (Hamels).

Man I hope whoever's emailing Yahoo about a player eligibility is playing fantasy baseball for a lotta money.

Do people play fantasy baseball seriously with no money involved? I can't imagine that...every league I am in is worth $500 or more.

I agree that going ballistic over the way Yahoo chooses to add new players is a solid example of losing perspective. It IS only a game, and it certainly isn't worth ruining a day over.

That being said, I wish quite strongly that Yahoo would do things properly and add players immediately upon call-up. I want to be rewarded for my research and study. I lost Liriano, and know that there's always a chance that your big stud goes down. So throughout the season I keep track of "lightning-in-a-bottle" type prospects in case of such an event.

I've been tracking Garza (and Hirsh) most of the season.

Had Yahoo added Garza and Hirsh immediately, they would nearly be through waivers (I think), and whoever won the claim would be close to owning them.

In the time that Yahoo has waited, Garza's name (and Hirsh's to a lesser extent) has been plastered all over the place.

I opened up the sports section of the pathetic big-market newspaper in my area this morning, only to find his name in big headlines on the baseball page.

"Well, there goes my chance of getting him seeing that I have number 13 waiver priority," I said to myself.

Some idiot in my league with his head planted up his arse is going to grab Garza because he was in the newspaper.

So it's a legitimate gripe, even though it's one of relatively minor significance.

I will never play in a Yahoo league again. $500 is riding on first place, and I'm not going to leave deal-breakers in the hands of morons.

Yahoo needs to get a clue.
