How 538 967 owners -- and one president -- run the Green Bay Packers

Fantasy baseball's Week 12 is of the fairly standard, midseason type, beginning with a lighter slate of seven Monday games, all of which are scheduled at night.

Among the schedule highlights:

Corey Seager, assuming his hamstring injury doesn't preclude him from playing, and his defending champion Texas Rangers head west to face this year's World Series favorites, the Los Angeles Dodgers. Seager, as you'll recall, played for the Dodgers from 2015-21, winning the World Series MVP award for the team's only 21st-century championship (in 2020). It will be his first game at Dodger Stadium since departing the team as a free agent.  Rookie phenom Paul Skenes, a top-20 fantasy SP since his May 11 recall, might be aligned for the first two-start week of his career. His Pittsburgh Pirates visit the St. Louis Cardinals and Colorado Rockies for three games apiece, meaning we might see Skenes' first Coors Field test in that prospective second turn. Note: This assumes that the Pirates, who were using a six-man rotation before placing Quinn Priester on the 15-day IL on June 6, revert to a five-man rotation for Week 12. Skenes would miss the Coors start if the team sticks with six starters. The Atlanta Braves and Baltimore Orioles, two popular league title contenders, square off at Baltimore's Camden Yards for three games beginning Tuesday. It's not the only such title-contender series the Orioles will play, as their week concludes with three additional home games against the NL-leading Philadelphia Phillies. Sunday's game currently aligns for a matchup of aces, Zack Wheeler for the Phillies and Corbin Burnes for the Orioles.
