It’s Simple Gio-graphy: Start Gonzalez

Despite the fact the Nationals are squaring off against Matt Harvey, Gio Gonzalez is still the pitcher to own tonight. Here are my picks for Monday, July 20:

Justin Turner, $6,600 Grady Sizemore, $3,900 Michael Lorenzen, $9,000

preferred-play

Preferred Stacks: Rockies, Tigers, Rangers, Rays, Diamondbacks, Dodgers and Reds

Secondary/Contrarian Stacks: Cubs, Phillies, Royals, Mariners, Angels and Giants

Weather Concerns: Biggest risks for a delay come in the TEX/COL and CHC/CIN games but the pitchers in those games are only worth tournament consideration anyways

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

UPDATE: The more I think about it, the more I think I undersold Reds’ hitters. Clayton Richard is a gas can and therefore Eugenio Suarez, Todd Frazier, Joey Votto and Marlon Byrd are all in play.
