So here is what happened with him. Grr... He was actually added last week, and added onto waivers. But then our provider did something funny; not what they had told us they'd do. This led to bugs on our side (in cases that normally should never occur). He was in the game, but showing as -- Empty --. Teams that added him (probably because they thought it would be funny to have a guy named -- Empty --, so they added him rather than telling us they found it) then couldn't update their rosters, etc. etc. So I think we sorted it out over the weekend, but by then he cleared waivers, was already on rosters, all sorts of side effects.

So this normally wouldn't happen because our provider wouldn't cross us up, but we also are examining the code that led to these weird circumstances so that we won't get the same outcome if they do it again.

And yes, I know baseball hasn't updated yet this morning. Next on my list. The week is off to a swell start heh But hey - we have baseball :-)
