A few games are expected to be rainy... who does this help, hitters or pitchers?

In general, cold weather helps pitchers.

By the way, I've got my first benched/sitting SP start of the year, Halladay vs NYY.
Anyone got anyone else benched?

It hurts everyone since it increases injury chances. I know I'm pretty scared about Sheets pitching on a rainy, slippery field in Wrigley. That is how he tweaked his groin last year, playing on a slippery field.

It's days like this that I'm reminded why I chose to work from home for about half the money I could have gotten elsewhere. No cough needed! It's Opening Day!

I'm pitching Roy, he is usually pretty good against the Yankees. I am sitting Wainwright against Colorado though.

Halladay has a great career line vs the Yankees. I'm starting him.
