Gotay NOT On Waivers

Despite what’s being heard on the airwaves and various internet sources, we’re now hearing that only Steven Register, and not Ruben Gotay, has been placed on waivers.

Hat tip to Andrew at The Ropolitans, who dug out the dirt and provided the link to the scoop from the NY Post.

Of course, we’ll never know for sure whether Gotay (or Register, for that matter) was put on waivers or not. The “waiver wire” is supposed to be a private process, and the only time anyone knows about players on it “officially” is when they are claimed, and their team relinquishes all rights.

As a result his posts often include mechanical evaluations, scout-like analysis, and opinions that go beyond the numbers.
