Preferred Stacks: Dodgers, Blue Jays, Tigers, Astros, Marlins and Diamondbacks

Secondary/Contrarian Stacks: Pirates, Indians, Cubs, Giants and Athletics

Weather Concerns: The main delay threats are in the MIN/OAK and COL/SD games, but there are lots of scattered thunderstorms across the US. Be especially careful with pitchers in those two games, but otherwise hitters should be good to go

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