Snake-Bitten by the Diamondbacks

Fading the highest priced hitter of the day, Paul Goldschmidt, is a risky proposition. Here are my picks for Tuesday, June 23:

Paul Goldschmidt, $11,000 Bryce Harper, $10,000 Madison Bumgarner, $22,000

Preferred Stacks: Diamondbacks, Yankees, Rockies, Athletics and Red Sox

Secondary/Contrarian Stacks: Orioles, Rays, Pirates, Phillies and Rangers

Weather Concern: No real cancellation threats but some delay concern for PHI/NYY, ATL/WSH, CIN/PIT and BAL/BOS limiting the upside for starting pitchers in those contests

Note: I will update the quick picks throughout the course of the day and adjust picks according to who is in/out of lineups
