  • Daily Dime: Arrieta and a bunch of Orioles and White Sox

    As always when playing Yahoo Daily Fantasy Baseball, be sure to check the final lineups and the weather. NOTE: I'm focusing, for the most part, on the games that begin after 7 pm ET.

    My full lineup:

    SP: Jake Arrieta ($57) - He's not cheap, but with 15 consecutive winning decisions and 24 consecutive quality starts, there's the highest of likelihoods that you'll get what you pay for.

    SP: Tanner Roak ($39) - Coming off a career-best 15 K effort and hosting a Phillies team that has scored the fewest runs in MLB to this point.

    C: Dioner Navarro ($7) - For $7, you can do alot worse than a backstop riding a five-game hitting streak that includes two home runs, a triple and a double.

    1B: Ben Paulsen ($16) - At home (Coors - cha-ching!), facing Juan Nicasio, who has an ERA of 5.79 over his past three starts and a career ERA over 5 at Coors Field.
