More or less in my understanding. Pretty sure we did it last year, didn't we? :-?

Not that I can recall. I remember willynilliness and not being sure of how to prioritize my numerous waiver claims.

Hrm. I honestly can't remember, but this sounds familiar now that you say it. Either way, I think we should probably consider some sort of waiver draft instead of willynillyness and/or free-for-all ...

I'm fine with there being order. The only thing is that it would be hard to have x amount of rounds when you're unsure of how many waiver claims each owner wants to make.

Bwanna: After just looking over the farm doc, Anthony Rizzo should be on my farm instead of Third Day's via the trade we made.

Although I agree that we should have a waiver draft, I think that should be something we debate next offseason.

But anyway, since players are placed on waivers, I wouldn't categorize the process as a free-for-all. I think the process makes things fairly equitable.

Why are we doing waivers offline? That makes no sense. Set them up in Yahoo as they finished last year and then start the league. All free agents will start on waivers, and we'll all have a chance based on our waiver priority from last season.

Otherwise, it is going to be a major headache.

I'm 99.9999% certain that's how we did it last year because it was such a fiasco the year before.

I believe last year we utilized the waiver process, which, if I recall correctly, worked ok. I think we used a waiver draft the year before, which was also fine I believe. I'm ok with either.

1. Set these waiver priorities for the teams [below].
2. Have the initial FA pool start on waivers (it's the default I'm pretty sure).
3. Start the league.
4. Owners have two days to make as many waiver claims as they wish and Yahoo handles it all.
