    whateverthey send your way

    "whatever they send your way" sound strange to me. Isn't "whatever they send you" enough?

    Re: whateverthey send your way

    Could you write the sentence you have in mind? Surely you don't mean "play along with whatever they you."?
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    Sorry I missed "send". I don't get what "your way" means.

    Re: whateverthey send your way

    "your way" means, in this context, to you. It's rather common - "I'll be sending some customers your way", "They'll be coming your way soon".
