But if your goal is to clear a CONTRACT under the 50 contract limit, they aren't options because they'll simply clear and you're still stuck at the same 49 contracts.
If you're trying to create room either to open up space for a college FA signing or for a 1-for-multiple trade, you need to waive someone who you know will get claimed - and therefore subtracted from your contract count.
I remember Sather waiving Voros, Rissmiller all of those bums right before the deadline as a way to clear a roster spot
Gilroy and Bickel will be waived at some point
