Monday through Friday each week The Oracle will give his thoughts on the best and worst matchups of the day.

You would also be wise to bookmark the following two sources to check daily after you read this wondrous piece (I'm so afraid of giving myself props).

Fantasy Alarm Lineups

Batter Versus Pitcher

* Make sure you check out the column titled Interleague Play: Week 2 Effects. It deals with the DH/non-DH situation for the coming week.

*** NOTE II: The game between the Phillies and Brewers has already been canceled.

DISH DIAMONDS – The Best Hitting Matchups of the Day
Ryan Howard will hit Monday. Period. Kyle Lohse can only hope to contain him, something he's never been able to do as Howard has brutalized Lohse for a .455 average, two homers and eight RBIs in 22 at-bats. Oh wait, no he won't since the game has been postponed (the opener has been moved to Tuesday cause of a deluge coming Monday in Philadelphia). Thanks a bunch Phillies.
