Best Players Not on Yahoo

Postby TheHumdingerDynasty » Fri May 04, 2007 5:03 pm

Frustrated by the random adding of players my league is having a draft of players not yet in the yahoo system so we have first dibs on those players when they become available.

Who are some players that you are looking forward to yahoo adding?

Ryan Braun, 3B, MIL

And by the way, I would never personally accept such a change of the rules in the course of a season. In-season, waivers work like a draft anyway. What do you mean by "random"?

Yovani Gallardo - P, Mil - Gallardo is considered the same level prospect as Lincecum, Hughes, Bailey etc. Its unclear whether he'll be up this year though as the Brewers have a lot of depth at SP so it might take two injuries or players doing poorly to get him up.

Braun and Gallardo as mentioned already.

I like Adam Miller a lot. Throws absolute gas and a filthy slider.

Those were the three I thought of. And we don't have any waivers to gkeep things more free flowing, so when a player gets added, who ever happens to be online at that time gets him.

Any other more obscure players?

Joey Votto, who may or may not get the call this year.

What sucks though with Yahoo is that Lincecum was already available, making it impossible to "win" the waiver war for Lincecum.
