    Our MLB Starting Lineups page has a new look!

    The most noticeable change is that we are now using full names on the cards. The player names were already linked to our relatively new player popups, but I wanted to mention that again here for those of you who haven’t yet seen them.

    We are also showing more weather hours on the card, and they are visible on page load (whereas before they were progressively disclosed behind an openable container). We are now showing two hours prior to game start time, the three hours projected for the game, and two hours after the game (in case there are any delays) for a total of 7 hours.

    Later in the day (before noon eastern), you will see links to the team-specific section of our daily Grind Down article below each team’s projected run total. Our Daily Grind Down is one of our staple pieces that gives a detailed breakdown for all fantasy-relevant players in today’s games.

    Lastly, we saw another site using projected lineups and thought it was a GREAT idea. If you don’t like seeing them, you can easily turn them off by using the “X” icon next to any “Lineup Not Released” header. Our projected lineup is automated to show the most recent lineup used by the team in a corresponding weekday or weekend game against a similarly handed pitcher, and we have plans to edit this projected lineup for injuries, call-ups, etc.

    Lastly, we’re always looking for feedback on this important page, so if there is anything you don’t like about the shift we have made or if you can think of anything this page allowed you to do before that’s now not as convenient, please let us know.

    I appreciate your continued efforts to bring a quality and informative product to us Grinders, your info is a major part of my DFS prep.

    I have found the Lineups page to be the most useful page all season, especially with the Insiders Edge ratings. Hopefully these improvements make it even better. Thanks!

    Projected lineup is great! Saves me from having to go back through and find that data elsewhere. Great work!

  • bklucky13

    Page looks awesome….keep up the great work!

  • terrymandangle

    Great job Riley! Projecting lineups is one of the most tedious parts of my daily research.

  • Putz

    Good deal!

    Looks great and sizes perfectly on my tablet.

  • Livingstone

    Looks great! Projected lineups are awesome! It would be nice to see who the home team (which stadium) is at first glance. From what I’m seeing though its always the team on the right. Thanks much!

    This looks great really helps a lot.

  • evil333

    Looks great and is very insightful info to have in the morning for lineup construction. Keep up the great work and keep on updating and upgrading :)

    Great Job !! Love the projected lineups, this helps a lot.

  • kamuy

    Looks good. Only thing is the projected lineups seem to be obviously a bit messed up. Lots of National league games dont even have a pitcher projected in the lineups. Also, I’m curious, when the projected lineups are tweaked to be more accurate, will it take into account platoon split players, such as a Raburn, or a Jeff Baker?

    Hi @kamuy, thanks for catching some of those. Cubs shouldn’t have a pitcher since they’re playing an American League team, but both the Phillies and Cardinals should have a pitcher in the lineup. We’ll work on tweaking those.

    Our analyst team will use a number of factors including platoon split players and call-ups when we start making adjustments.

  • North

    Well done, and I agree with the others who like the projected lineups…should save some time clicking around other sites to collect that info…thanks!

  • crazman

    I like the idea of the projected lineups, but not the implementation. There are too many colors on the page, making it look very busy. One of the biggest possible issues I see is that the red color for the projected lineups looks very similar to the red weather status. It’s hard to say for sure without seeing some Red weather, but it’s just a thought.

    All in all I think the updates are great and will be very helpful to us when doing research.

  • NSNunn

    Love the improvements! One thing I’m noticing on the projected lineups, you guys have quite a few pitchers hitting in AL parks, and some teams having a DH in NL parks. Obviously will take a while to work the bugs out, but thanks for all that you do!

    @crazman, yeah we thought of that which was one reason we added a way to turn them all off and remember your choice.

    We choose the red color because we want to make it very obvious that this is not the confirmed lineup. We experimented with some other colors, but none seemed to work as well as red. We’ll continue experimenting to figure out if something works better.

    Thanks for the feedback!

    Great job, love the projected lineups!

  • Enuff

    love it

  • eperson911

    It looks great! One thing I have always wanted to do is be able to list the salary for multiple sites at once. I’d love to be able to see the FanDuel and DraftKings salary listed on the same page.
