More minor leaguers listed in Yahoo this year

Postby EdinNYC » Fri Mar 26, 2010 3:36 pm

It seems to me like Yahoo has decided to include many more players this year than in the past. For example, players not expected to be in the majors at the start of the year who did not appear in the majors the year before were never included. Someone like Strasberg may have been included in the past but I have noticed many deep deep minor leaguers there now. I have two keeper leagues in Yahoo and this could have an impact. We reset waiver order on a monthly basis throughout the year to help the weaker teams get prospects. A prospect like Ryan Braun came up in midseason in 2007. He did not appear in Yahoo before his callup. Now it looks like Yahoo would include a similar prospect from the beginning.

Have others noticed this?

Note that having this distinction in our game now gives us more freedom to add prospect types, because people who are serious about wanting a predictable, consistent experience shouldn't be seeing them anyway.
