When Clayton Kershaw comes up is he worth the #1 waiver claim?

I say YES! - that's one - next vote/yes or no?

Your getting ahead of yourself there. First we have to wait for Yahoo to get him into the database... (I'm guessing your using Yahoo, or you wouldn't need to use a waiver priority on him!) Lol.

I'm gonna go ahead and add him. In ESPN leagues, he's just sitting there on the wire, no waiver claim needed.

As much as I'd hate to tie up a bench spot, I think he's worth the wait, even if he doesn't get called up for a while.

As a side note: how is this guy 0-3 having only given up 4ER in 33+ innings? Insane.

more good news

http://www.pe.com/sports/baseball/dodge ... b94d9.html

May 10
Clayton Kershaw (P) LA
There is increasing media speculation that Kershaw will be brought up to pitch in Esteban Loaiza's spot on May 17. The most recent came Saturday from Diamond Leung at The Press-Enterpise's pe.com. Kershaw was oddly used in relief in his May 7 starting slot, which was a bit of a tip-off. He is scheduled to pitch on Monday, so how he is used, and the pitch count, will be interesting

That is encouraging news.
Here's hoping that Yahoo doesn't splash it all over the homepage and does add him to the pool before he makes his first start.
I had an eye on Scherzer in Spring Training, and wasn't able to snag him in any league... :-{

Yeah, the Yahoo "waiver" system makes little sense. I wanted to draft Cueto but b/c he wasn't in the system at the time, I couldn't get him b/c my waiver status (determined by the draft) was too low. WTF?

In order to remedy this in one league, we have set up a system where one can "claim" a player (as long as you have a free roster spot) and if no one else with a high waiver position doesn't claim them in 24-hrs, he is yours (and then you go to the back of the waiver line by taking a random waiver player and dropping him immediately). While it is not perfect, it allowed me to "claim" Kershaw a week or two ago - not that I am expecting the world out of him, but my pitching needed some help.

I think that Yahoo's system makes a lot of sense to be honest. They don't add the player until they are called up or are on the MLB roster. Last year's additions of Braun and Gallardo were the exception, and they screwed everyone up.
