    Noticed DK has games for today. Tried researching but not getting a lot of info. Going to try and focus on young guys trying to make impacts like the rookie Alonzo for the Mets competing with Smith for 1st base.

    This is another difficult slate. Pitching is absolutely horrendous. Still deciding if I want to play..

  • kwame724

    sitting this slate out. Germnan is the only pitcher i like. Offense should be great in this slate

    Lots of middle of the rotation guys going today that could do ok, but I agree there are no stand outs starting.

    Mets out there throwing batting practice to the Nats today yeesh

    Saturday slate here! Some Arizona games today to look at. I won’t be around on twitter today to update.

    Mariners and A’s will start the regular season in Japan on 3/20 (and another game the next day). Wonder if any site will offer showdown slates for these two games. For now I only see the main slate for 3/28.

  • D4RKSH33P

    I would think they would be itching to get the season started for showdowns. More contests means more rake!

    Here is Sunday’s Slate blog:

    I would imagine there will be smallish showdowns for those games considering that lock will be like 5:30 a.m. EST. Needless to say I’d be all over them..

    Monday slate is up:

    I am going to hop into the RG discord MLB channel today to try and see if anyone wants to chat about the slate more there.

  • D4RKSH33P

    Be real careful today as weather looks like it could be a factor.

    Idk what the brain is doing. I have…

    TB
    some Phi
    some Bos
    Eflin Eovaldi Morton

  • RudyPujols

    Ok, both of those Eflin runs are unearned since Munoz reached on an error with 2 outs prior to the Goldy 2-run blast. I can get on board with the change in rules of how Wins are earned by pitchers given the way they are used in ST, but I cannot get on board with completely ignoring earned run rules. Hopefully this gets changed. Difference in cashing versus not cashing for me at the moment.

  • D4RKSH33P

    They are showing 3 runs and 2 earned on the mlb gameday for what that is worth

    Wait I get what you are saying now. It should be only 1 earned run since the error should have been the third out.

    I think the issue is the ST game scorers either: (a) aren’t as adherent to the rules; and/or (b) aren’t subject to the same sort of oversight/correction process. Gameday and DK both just go with the official scorer, so it isn’t DK’s fault by any means. This actually happens briefly in the regular season pretty often, then it gets corrected before payout pretty much without fail. But all runs scored after a batter reaches base as a result of an error and 2 outs are unearned with only one exception: if a relief pitcher comes into the game and allows new runners to score they are earned. Should be only 1 earned run. See MLB Rule 9.16(a), and following commentary/example # 3.

    I asked the Phils beat writer on twitter:
    https://twitter.com/AlexCarrMLB/status/1107729464530817026

    Seems like it is just an error, but also not really a well-known rule.

    Right on. I assumed it was basically just a combination of ST scorers and nobody really caring enough to question it.

    It may not be well known generally, but it’s certainly worth knowing if you are following your lineups in real time (nice to know when you don’t have to worry as much about your SP being in a jam or when the chalky SP you faded isn’t as vulnerable as he would otherwise be in a jam).

    I missed the cash line by about 3 points, so I don’t even get to be slightly miffed about it.

    Been reading your blog whenever I have time to throw in a lineup or two. Finished 2nd ($1,000) in the DK $10 today, so just wanted to say thanks.

    The only thing that would make me happier is if it was ME winning that money! Congrats. Do you mind if I add that to my blog or when I tweet out the link tomorrow? I don’t have to attach your name to it or whatever.

    I am going to take down the $10 tournament today just to let you know. I will win by at least 15 points.

    Bobby, do you want me to talk to RG support? It looks like they haven’t added your win to your profile yet and it’s been like 4 days.

    Feel free to use whatever you like, my man. Keep up the good work.

    Why don’t you keep an eye on the 10.00 leaderboard today and tell me what’s up. Actually u might have a hard time following it since you enter the .10 contests.

  • BobbyTheBrain

    Also I wanna add…have fun picking lineups today.

  • RudyPujols

    Anybody crazy enough to roll out Chad Green today? Apparently he is going to do the opener thing with Cessa to come into the game later. I can’t bring myself to do it, so I’m sure he’ll get 2 IP, strike out 4 or 5, and get the W.

  • noddy

    I’m playing for the first time this spring….anything musts I need to know? Putting a lineup in the $10 contest on DK
