Yahoo and Matt Holliday

Does Yahoo have a way where you can see when a player such as Matt Holliday is going to be added to the player pool? Do they have a games played until added? If they do, I can't figure it out.

As far as I know, you're just going to have to check the FA list every 2 days, searching by his last name. Eventually he'll be entered into Yahoo's database on waivers. Then you can either use a waiver claim on him or wait until he clears waivers and pick him up as a FA (depends on whether you think someone else in your league will grab him off waivers).

Yeah, I am getting tired of checking for players who have been on 25 man rosters for weeks on Yahoo.

This is why you don't use free Yahoo for leagues that are important.

On the league page, in the box on the right that says "Research and Analysis", click on the link at the bottom that says "View all..." Then on the left box click on "Status Changes" and "Added." That will tell you who Yahoo's added to the player universe and when they get off waivers.

Join the club. There's a Chase Banking commercial that has the slogan "Free Isn't Enough", but with no competition (Yahoo), you're just gonna have to live with it.
