We had an amazing Opening Day with homers flying out of the parks and some stud pitchers absolutely shoving. Now we slide into the weekend with a shorter slate than usual, especially for a Friday. There are no day games today, so there isn't a distinction between an early/main slate. For your lineup construction pleasure, I tried to give some different options in different price ranges, but as always, make sure you check out today's hitting and pitching coaches pieces as well as the optimal lineups I will construct a few hours before first pitch.
