Was able to cash every all my GPPs yesterday thanks to the aforementioned Yankees stack from yesterday’s article(Yahoo DFS, if you haven’t tried it yet, get on it!!) All 15 teams are on the slate again tonight, let’s check out some bats to stack.
Kansas City Royals
I know what you’re thinking…this offense is vile, atrocious, dreadful, awful, ghastly, terrible, deplorable. This doesn’t seem like the team that made it to back-to-back World Series two years ago…BUT in DFS anything is possible, some nights the Cubs score 0 and the Oakland A’s put up 14. Anything can happen..especially when you’re facing Mike Pelfrey. Pelf isn’t getting any younger…he’s already struggled in his two starts this year, ERA of 5.00 and WHIP at 1.70. All the Royals 1-5 hitters have excellent BVP against him and in 2015 they killed righties, so this match up might be just what they need to get out of this month long slump(They’re all super cheap too)
The Stack: Moustakas, Cain, Hosmer, Perez
Boston Red Sox
Much like the Royals, this Red Sox team is not hitting like their normal selves, after coming off the 2016 season as the best offense in baseball. They’ve only hit 15 home runs as a team and are 26th in the league in runs…but this team has loads of talent and can get hot at any time. Kevin Gausman’s earned runs by game this season: 5, 5, 8, 1, 4, 3. He’s only had one passable start all season as he comes in with a 7.50 ERA. The Sox have already tee’d off on him this year as they unloaded for 3 big flies against him just last week. Betts, Benintendi, Bogaerts, and Pedroia are all hitting .300+ off of righties this year, should be solid stack for cash games.
The Stack: Bradley Jr, Benintendi, Betts, Bogaerts
Chicago White Sox
This is my “got a feeling stack” for tonight. Don’t look now, but the White Sox are 14-11 coming into Wednesday and have the hottest hitter in baseball right now in Avisail Garcia. Karns has struggled mightily this year, coming into this match up with a 6.57 ERA. Karns has never been a quality pitcher at the Major League level and in DFS I always target bats facing him. My call of the night: Todd Frazier goes deep(even though he is hitting just .174 off righties this year)
The Stack: Soto, Frazier, Garcia
Pretty chalky here…but c’mon it’s 34 year old Jered Weaver. Without the Coor’s effect, the Rockies are considerably worse on the road…like much, much worse than they should be, but this lineup is extremely dangerous, especially now that Desmond is a part of it. Story, Blackmon, CarGo, Arenado…it’s very difficult for pitchers to get through this whole lineup without some scrapes and bruises. Weaver has been surprisingly excellent this year, but he’s bound to come back down to Earth sometime and I think it happens tonight against Colorado, who kill right handed pitching.
The Stack: Parra, Gonzalez, Blackmon, Arenado
