Great thread fellas.
You come home from a party at 2am but before you go to sleep you've gotta check your league to see if your waiver request went through or to see if a player cleared waivers so you can pick him up.
That one really hurt me this week. Choi got dropped earlier in the week and I had #2 waiver priority. The guy with #1 waiver priority is real savy and I was doubtfull I could sneak Choi bye him as it was. Wouldnt you know it? The next few games following his drop before he cleared waivers he hit 3 or 4 HR. Neddless to say I stayed up late just to see if he would clear to me. Of course the other owner beat me to him
, and I lost a few hours of much needed sleep. I'm really bad on a similar not when guys I want but dont want to wast a waiver claim on are out there. I'll try and stay up late to get them as soon as they are FA but as is the curse of competetive $$ leagues, 90% of the time somebody uses their bottom of the order waiver claim on them. High waiver priority can really be a curse sometimes.
All gripes aside its worth the frustration to play in really competetive money leagues where you have a good natured friendly competition rapport with all the other owners.
