Welcome to the MLB DFS Playbook for April 1.

We're working off a nine-game main slate here tonight with some very interesting match-ups. The hitting looks a lot better than the pitching right now so choose your investments carefully. I'm leaning towards a pay-up at shortstop and third base, so some corner-cutting is going to be necessary for cash games. We can spend up for at least one outfielder, but we are definitely going to need to find some baragains.

Here's a look at today's Playbook...
