They can't all be winners folks. Despite hitting on all of my starters last night including long-shot Erasmo Ramirez, I had my first losing day in the past seven in DFS on Wednesday. I was hopeful that the Nationals would be able to solve Tyler Skaggs and despite having him on the ropes in the early going they couldn't put him away. 

Anyways, onward and upward we go as we turn our attention to the late games on today's MLB card. Tonight we have ten games to choose from and plenty of opportunities to win money across the industry. Whether you are playing in Fanduel's $100K Strikeout tournament, DraftKings $100K Perfect Game or just padding your bankroll over on DraftStreet tonight, here is your one stop shop for winning daily fantasy baseball. This is the DFS Playbook for Wednesday April 23rd.

Why do I feel like Kyle Fuller is going to have a show on @SiriusXMFantasy one day?? #MyReplacementProbably

What a perfect segway for Friday nights #NFLNetwork A Football Life of Brandon Marshall

Thank you Jim Harbaugh & Greg Roman for that win tonight. The #Bears desperately needed it....

Come on guys...accept the penalty so that we can set a record. We didn't sit through this bullshit for nothing... #NFL

All I know is that the #49ers should just keep throwing that ball. It is really working out so well for them right now.
