3. Favorite Stacks
Angels versus Madison Bumgarner– MadBum is been more BUM than MAD this year. He has given up 11 home runs in just 26.1 innings pitched and won’t be comfy confine of Chase field.

Diamondbacks versus Julio Teheran

Royals versus Matthew Boyd– Boyd has been atrocious so far this year and there isn’t many reasons to think this is where he begins to turn it around.

Phillies versus Rick Porcello– Porcello’s xBA is .314 and is bottom 20$ of the league in xERA, xwOBA, xSLG, velocity, and Whiff %.

Coors Stack- It’s Coors!

3B (Expensive): Nolan Arenado vs OAK
3B (Punt/Value): Sherten Apostel at HOU. You may never have heard of Apostel, but he is a top prospect in the Rangers system that has made his debut. He is only $2,200 and has pop for a pure punt play. Also consider Alec Bohm, Eduardo Escobar, and Isaac Paredes.
