    question about waiver hoarding and locking?

    Exactly Steve, I think streaming a bunch of pitchers is a little more on the fair side because there are major risks involved. Anyone can start 5 streamers or so in a day, but they risk annhilating their ERA and WHIP. However, if someone in the lead decides to just start duming everyone on his team and cycling/picking up ALL probables then its sketchy because other managers arent able to access the wire at all. I just think this kind of stuff should be snuffed out so that balance can be achieved from day one to the end. I've heard of many other manager installing max waiver moves per week to keep this issue under control. I'm all for competion, but why not set the peramaters within a league in such a way that promotes a level playing field?

    • That's why Yahoo has max weekly pickups. If you set it to 4 or 5, there is a limit on how many streamers this guy can pick up.

    • Yahoo controls the parameters in public leagues so its up to them to change refine the max rule-however based upon the way daily stats are counted I dont see a way to change it.I dont know if you know this but you can this same thing with the OF positions if you only have 1 left you can start 3 OFs and get all stats

      • I understand that and the 1/3 of an inning left stuff - I dont necessarily have a problem with it. What I have a problem with is when people max out their allowed innings pitchd and then cycle probable putchers off the waiver wire until the end of the season simply in an attempt to block other manager from getting so much as one streamer. I just dont think that very honorable. The max moves cap in our league was at 100 this season, I am lobbying to have it reduced somewhere around 50-60 to keep things a little more under control.
