Yea I've always thought it was 3 AM Eastern Time (12 Pacific)...that was when a new day processed last season..I know because sometimes I would spot guys right at the deadline and then pick them back up after the 3 AM update...I don't see why this wouldn't translate to waivers as well
Why don't they just get a house that's already painted?

I remember waiting up until early morning to pick up Gallardo and Braun last year. I'd definitely consider doing it this year for a few specific players.

I cannot specifically remember but I think that is because the exact time tends to vary some. The earliest you would see would be in the 330 est timeframe but it can range past 430 est as well if memory serves me correctly.

3 AM EST. When someone has a claim in for the player, I believe they stay on waivers for an extra hour or so. Not 100% sure about that though.

I remember last year that the times seemed to vary. Sometimes it took an hour or two longer.

It does. I've seen it clear a few times between 3 am Central to 5 am Central.
