Sporting News

There are a full 15 games on Wednesday's MLB schedule, with 10 on themain slate and five starting in the afternoon (counting the White Sox-Indians game that gets underway at 6:10 pm ET). With severalelectric armsscheduled to start, it should be a great day of baseball and daily fantasy baseball contests -- so great, in fact, that we're going the extra mile with our DFS advice over at Fantasy Alarm.

We’re posting optimal lineups for both the all-day slates and the main slates for our subscribers, and, as always, we'll have the Hitting Coach, Pitching Coach, Daily Rankings, and Lineup Generatorto help you cash!

On the weather front, things look pretty good. There could be someafternoon showers in the Northeast, but even if there are delays to the Rays-Yankees or Red Sox-Orioles, itdoesn’t sound like there is much risk to getting these games in. The biggest threat of a "PPD" is in San Francisco latethis evening. That will definitely be something to monitor, as it will probably be too late for any real pivots in your lineups.
