2. Casual Weather
SF at OAK- 10% chance of rain at game time, but it should play.

SD at SEA- This game has been moved to San Diego due to the air quality in Seattle.


3. Favorite Stacks
Yankees vs Martin Perez– Perez has given up seven homers in his last 10 games.

Braves vs Steven Matz– Matz was so terrible the Mets sent him to the bullpen. He gave up nine homers in six games pitched before hitting the IL.

Coors Stack- It’s Coors!

Indians vs Michael Fulmer and Daniel Norris– Fulmer has not been good this year and while Norris has been decent, the Indians should jump on Fulmer early.

Brewers vs Danny Duffy– Duffy is returning from a disciplinary issue and has been homer and walk prone this year.


4. Favorite Hitting Plays
Catcher (Expensive): Austin Nola vs SEA.
Catcher (Punt/Value): Luis Torrens at SD. Definitely more of a cash game play, but Torrens is hitting .294/.385/.471 over his last 10 games and is only $2,000. Also consider Tyler Stephenson, Omar Narvaez, or Austin Barnes.

1B (Expensive): Luke Voit at BOS
1B (Punt/Value): Nate Lowe at BAL. Lowe has been playing regularly since Ji-Man Choi hit the IL and he has been playing well. Also consider Edwin Rios and Bobby Dalbec.

2B (Expensive): DJ LeMahieu at BOS
2B (Punt/Value): Nico Goodrum vs CLE. Not a lot of great options at second, but Goodrum is cheap coming off the IL and has power and speed.

3B (Expensive): Manny Machado vs SEA
3B (Punt/Value): Edwin Rios at COL
Rios has a home run in his last two games and is in Coors. Just make sure he is in the lineup. Also consider Nate Lowe Sherten Apostel, Jake Lamb, and Bobby Dalbec

SS (Expensive): Trevor Story vs LAD
SS (Punt/Value): Gleyber Torres at BOS. Torres’ overall numbers aren’t great, but he is starting to put it together and has a nice matchup versus Martin Perez. Also consider Nico Goodrum, Andres Jimenez, and Willi Castro.

OF (Expensive): Mookie Betts, Mike Trout, Ronald Acuna, Brandon Lowe, Aaron Judge, Marcell Ozuna, Trent Grisham,
OF (Punt/Value): Wil Myers, Justin Upton, Ramiel Tapia, Manuel Margot, Byron Buxton, David Dahl, Jorge Ona


5. Favorite Pitching Plays
Cash Games: Zach Greinke, Max Fried, Tyler Glasnow, Zac Gallen, Kyle Hendricks, Zach Plesac

Tournament: Tyler Glasnow, Zach Plesac, Chris Paddack, Chris Bassitt, Adrian Houser, Tejay Antone

Contrarian Plays: Jaime Barria, Rich Hill
