Yes, only because Gallardo has that sexy NA next to his name. If he were up, he should be taken by someone with a top 2 priority.

It's the right move I think. Braun is no chopped liver.

I'm in the same situation as the OP.

However, if I wake up early on Sunday morning, is there a way to tell if someone in the league put in a claim for Gallardo? (this way I can choose NOT to use my waiver)

My friend told me if he hasn't cleared waivers by ~6:50AM EST, than someone has put in a claim and is getting "sorted" out.

I've noticed when players clear waivers and nobody put a claim on them they usually clear closer to 6:30AM EST.

Thoughts?

That's what I've always done. I don't know how early I usually check, all I remember is that it was pretty early.
