Why is Matt Harvey not showing up in Yahoo?

Postby mayor quimby » Tue Jul 17, 2012 7:45 pm

I've tried to search for him everyday now for the past week and he's not showing up.

Is anyone else having this problem?

He is not in the database. Once added to a MLB roster he will be added to database and put on waivers... the way it should be.

If your settings are for players to not become available until they're called up to the Major Leagues, he shouldn't be there.

He's not there no matter what settings you use on yahoo.

Why would I ask this question if my league had that setting? I'm not retarded...

It's one of the more common questions asked with respect to prospect availability, and is most often, the appropriate answer to the question. I can't be certain, though, whether the people in the past who have asked were or were not retarded. I don't have that data.

fyi if you want a league with a deeper player pool try ESPN or CBS or some others

for the record I much prefer Yahoo interface overall but if for some reason things like "no harvey" bother you just passing it along

yahoo must have different type of settings for different leagues. the one fantasy baseball helper whatever on twitter was talking about Jays Anthony Gose the night before he was called up, and how Gose was not in his yahoo list and everyone would have to wait to add him. in most other leagues I have seen Gose was available in yahoo.

there was a time, a few years ago maybe? the only players available in yahoo were those that had major league experience. the year Ryan Braun came up he was not in yahoo before being called up. I remember because I had the #2 waiver priority but lost out to the guy with #1 waiver priority.
