I saw the name Adam Eaton and I'm thinking he hasn't pitched in the majors for a few years now. but apparently there is an OF prospect with the same name.

This... hes been very underrated, sickles just said recently he would put a B+ grade on him at the very least, the scouting reports are glowing on him to.

I've been waiting on Taveras and Straily for months. Our league uses the setting, "New Players Become Available: As soon as Yahoo! adds them." That's supposed to create a deeper player pool. It's not really optimal if the top prospects are added in haphazard fashion rather than a systematic manner.

In fairness, going into this season Straily was an afterthought. ESPN has a very very deep player pool and he wasn't even in that until yesterday. He's the first player I've come across in three years to not be in their database from the get go, so I'm definitely giving Yahoo! a free pass on him.

He is available today. I put my claim in. He'll process on the 6th. Fingers crossed.
