As someone else mentioned, he is definitely in the player pool. Looking here:

http://baseball.fantasysports.yahoo.com ... type=added

He isn't even a recent addition; was probably in the initial player pool for this season. There are two likely explanations I can think of:

1) He is there in your league and you somehow just missed him
or
2) He isn't visible in your league because your league has no P slots, and perhaps at this point he only qualifies as P and not SP or RP. My league has nothing *but* P slots, so I can't easily see where he qualifies at this point. Last year when I was at Y!, we noted there were only a couple of pitchers in this weird state, and I think we forced them all to be eligible for either SP or RP rather than waiting for them to qualify. That may not have happened this season.

I'm gonna guess #2. How did I do?

Checking in to see if people are seeing issues with swap mode this week. We put a fix in place and I want to see if it remedied the problem for folks who were affected here. Thanks.

I told Senor Smiley the same thing offline: I am not seeing any problems since the intended fix was pushed out. Hopefully it works for the rest of you, too.

Heads up to Cafe folks. We have updated the add/drop flow in the Yahoo game. No longer does it have the old look & feel, which IMO was jarring when coming from the Players page. We have added player cards to the top of the add drop page to allow users compare some high-level data that was previously unavailable (or required a few clicks): transaction trends, ranks over past 14 and 30 days. The hope is you find the experience faster, easier and aesthetically more pleasing.
