The rain is supposed to let up this afternoon and continue again later tonight. Hopefully for Prior owners (and Peavy), he doesn't go out on the mound, throw a few innings and have a long delay, which would take him out of the game - or worse yet, have the game called off and negate whatever stats he had and ruining his start this week.

i am starting him as well.... i considered not starting him today since peavy is pitching but since it is in chicago in front of the home crowd i figured he would be pumped and throw a 3 hitter....

What is "pitcher weather"? Light rain?


Las Vegas Over/Under on the game is 7 and the Under is favored. That means the wind today is the pitcher's friend. At Wrigley, the wind is such a determining factor that it's the one and only big league stadium where no house will post an early Total till they have a good idea on the weather. When the wind is favoring the hitters, they will post double figure Totals, regardless of who's pitching.

I don't play Fantasy baseball to play it safe, I play to take risks and watch my guys either succeed or crash and burn.

I'll tell you one thing, I'll be more excited listening to the game with me playing him then not, and that's what it's all about IMO, live a little. ;-D


Thats exactly how I think. I like you.

Nope, no day game...they called it off!

This is pretty cool. I forgot to take Prior off my DL last night, so now I can do it and start him (risky but hey, I'll take any chance for a win)! ;-D
