Early Slate 1:10 EST
P: Stephen Strasburg
Strasburg will be visiting the mets in a division game tomorrow afternoon. Their last meeting was nearly a year ago and he gave up 2HR & 4ER in 6IP. Overall vs the Mets he looks good (.147. 22 S/O, 1BB, 2HR) and i expect him to exact his revenge.
3B: Anthony Rendon
While most batters struggle against Symdegaard, The third baseman has other plans. He is batting a career .345 (10-29) 2D, 2HR, 5R, 7RBI. Rendon had been hot over the past week with a line of 6-15, 1 HR, 4RBI.
OF: Brett Gardner
Simply.put. this guy knows how tomget on base bs Cobb. Hes batting (.250) with a HR, 7R, 2RBI, and 5 walks. The yankees are big favorites in this matchup so this is a fitting Crush Spot. Stack him with one of these sluggers who has a HR vs Cobb as well.
Luke Voit: .500 1 HR
Gary Sanchez: 3-8 .375 1 HR
OF: Chad Pinder
This A’s team hasn’t had great luck vs Rodriguez with the exception of Pinder. I expect him to come out of his funk, as the law of averages would agree, to be an above average factor in the outcome of this game. He is (.300) with a 2B, HR, 4R, & 2RBI.(.462 wOBA/.400 ISO). You can also make an OAK stack if trying to be contrarian.
Kendrys Morales: 8-27 3D, HR, 2R, 3RBI .346/.222
Stephen Piscotty: .500 1 HR
Robbie Grossman: .375
Boston Red Sox – Very few AB, but here is a peak at their brief history. VS ANDERSON
Mitch Moreland: 3-8 (.375) wOBA-.410
Rafael Devers: .667
Mookie Betts: .600 2RBI
Eduardo Nunez: .500 3 Doubles
Main Slate – 7:05 EST
P- Aaron Sanchez
He started his season right last week with a W that should carry momentum into today’s game. Sanchez in his career, has stayed true to his form with an .154ERA, with 15 strikeouts. When he’s off his game you will know by the amount of walks he starts to concede. I dont see that happening here however.
As far as bats go, there are a few mini stacks worth taking a look at;
Toronto VS Trevor Bauer
Justin Smoak: 3-9 .333 1 Double, 3 RBI.
Freddie Galvis: .500 1 HR
Pittsburgh VS Tyler Mahle
Marte: 6-12 .500 2 Doubles ,2 Runs
Colin Moran: 4-5 .800
Los Angeles Angels VS Edison Volquez
Albert Pujols: 5-12 .417, 1 Double, 2HR, 4R, 5RBI, 5BB (.621 wOBA/.583 ISO)
Jonathan Lucroy: 10-30 .300) 1 Double
AND THEN THERE IS THIS: MEGA STACK
Cincinnati VS Jordan
Joe Votto: 7-14(.500) 2D,2HR,5R,3RBI,5BB,(.668/.571)
Matt Kemp: 5-14(.357) HR,4R,2RBI,SB(.420)
Yasiel Puig: 5-13(.385)D,HR,2R,5RBI,4SO,(.490/.308)
Eugenio Suarez: 2-2, D
Derek Dietrich: 3-5(.600)
Jose Peraza: 1-4(.250) HR
I Know this is a lot of info, but remember to always go with your gut and don’t let the masses sway you. Until tomorrow & good luck.
