    For what it’s worth the Dodgers, nor Giants twitter accounts have anything about today’s game being cancelled.

  • Roma315

    I really hope they do a net 0 loss again. This is insane. All my LU’s moved to less than optimal players. Had SD stack, LAD stack, both pitchers. To be honest they should have canceled the slate

    This seems promising if you are hoping to put Kershaw in or use someone like Betts

    Kevin Gausman, who is scheduled to start for the Giants tonight, is out playing catch with Logan Webb.

  • CodeBandit

    This is a few hours old. But says the game was canceled.

    ESPN has the game still marked as postponed

  • SkateFiend

    What happens to dfs if games starting on time is no longer a certainty?

    I’d like to see a statement from dk regarding a response or future plans tbh.

  • stellagirl

    FWIW, the sportsbook apps do not have the LAD/SFG game as betting options.

  • conndia

    FD support twitter posted this at 7:51. No way they don’t 0 loss if it plays

    “GAME ALERT: Tonight’s LOS @ SFG MLB game has been postponed. Any players selected from this game will receive 0 points. Please adjust your lineups accordingly.

    The MLB After Hours and Late Snake Draft slates will be voided with entry fees returned.“

    It seems like the obvious thing to do is to not lock players until the game actually starts. Forget the start times. Lock the players when the ball is tipped off, first pitch is thrown, ball is kicked off, etc. I won’t hold my breath that they make this common sense change though.

    And DK never put the players in red. But since it started so late, what choice did we have? Be funny if the winners of this slate are people who put their lineups together earlier and went out to dinner.

    FWIW, The Dodgers just tweeted their lineup.

    I’ve always thought they should do this. It seems like they already have the technology to do so. All they have to do is create a code that locks all players in a game once the first stat from that game happens.

    There’s not any potential for gamesmanship because even if the first batter hit a HR you wouldn’t have time to grab them before they locked.

    Tapia’s out with an elbow injury, by the way.

    They’ll have to deviate from the norm on lock time and replacing late scratched players. It’d be unprecedented but necessary.

    The nba does not have control over their house. And their credibility was already muddled over the China issue.

    The Cardinals really don’t know how to hit, do they?

    Last night had me thinking that as well.

  • yisman

    yahoo really got me today

    they had the big red X by Alex Gordon saying he was not playing

    turns out he is

  • SkateFiend

    How can a game be postponed when a team tweeted out a lineup? The lad site has not announced postponement.

  • 866

    Dodger is On? ESPN shows PPD. What a bizarre day

  • blackdirkdiggler

    Need some advice please: should I place Arenado or Story in the captain spot?
