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.
