League average for position players is 100, and every point above 100 is a percentage point above league average. For example, a 125 wRC+ means a player created 25% more runs than a league average hitter would have in the same number of plate appearances. Similarly, every point below 100 is a percentage point below league average, so a 80 wRC+ means a player created 20% fewer runs than league average.” For more on the stat, click here. Watch ChangeUp, a new MLB live whip-around show on DAZNJon Lester (@ Dodgers) and Matt Strahm (@ Rockies) are obvious fades given the matchups/parks, but both have enough talent to come through in GPPs.Check the Fantasy Alarm Weather Center closer to lineup lock for the latest weather reports. With only two afternoon games, it’s a fairly large Thursday main MLB DFS slate tonight. As a result, our SP rankings are deeper than usual for a Thursday, and there are some surprising value sleepers on both FanDuel and DraftKings.Our top five are particularly solid, though all cost a premium. If you’re looking to pay down, Marcus Stroman (@ Orioles) and Jack Flaherty (@ Mets) both have high upsides and fair prices, and Ryan Yarbrough (vs. Angels) is a boom-or-bust option at an affordable price who works well in GPPs. Erick Fedde (vs. D-backs) has a relatively low ceiling, but with his rock-bottom price, he’s not a bad option, especially as an SP2 on DraftKings.
A 150-foot-long wind turbine blade positioned on the northwest corner of the Iowa State Fairgrounds was the site of a ceremony Monday. Governor Kim Reynolds signed the blade — and signed a proclamation declaring this “wind week” in Iowa.“As the governor of this state, I certainly understand the importance that renewable energy has not only for Iowans, but for our economy,” Reynolds said. American Wind Energy Association C-E-O Tom Kiernan says more than nine-thousand people are working in 10 different Iowa factories that are supplying things like wind turbine towers and blades.“I was in Washington, D.C. with a wind tech from Iowa talking about the jobs and he corrected me. He said: ‘No, no, no. This isn’t just a job. This is a career,’” he said. “….We’re having, because of the training programs, more people stay in Iowa and rural America.” Iowa Economic Development Authority director Debi Durham says one-third of all consumers make purchasing decisions based on a company’s environmental and social impact.“Indeed, businesses are increasingly focused on their environmental footprint and the fact that we can power a production economy with affordable, reliable and renewable energy is a powerfall calling card for our state,” Durham said. “It’s one of the many reasons sustainability-minded businesses like Facebook and Apple and Google have chosen Iowa.” By 2020, Iowa wind turbines are projected to account for 40 percent of the energy produced in the state.
