Knowing when players are added to the database

Postby A Fleshner Fantasy » Tue Jul 27, 2010 11:55 am

When having a high waiver priority, it is important to know which prospects are added to the database so you can grab them. Does either ESPN or Yahoo show in anyway which players get added, more so than just having to search for the individual player in the database to see if they show up?

Can't you just use the MLB Roster Changes under the Players Tab in Yahoo?

Yup. The label "MLB Roster Changes" is a bit misleading. That is where to tell when players are added to our fantasy game. I can't answer for those other guys... ;-)
