You Mad, Bro?

The Rangers should have a tough time hitting the nasty arsenal of Madison Bumgarner and therefore he belongs in your daily lineup. Here are my picks for Friday, July 31:

Paul Goldschmidt, $10,200 Andrew McCutchen, $9,600 Danny Salazar, $20,300

Pedro Alvarez, $6,600 Cameron Maybin, $6,900 Taylor Jungmann, $15,000
Adonis Garcia, $3,900 Rajai Davis, $6,400 Scott Feldman, $10,800

preferred-play

Preferred Stacks: Cardinals, Giants, Orioles, Pirates, Yankees, Astros, Red Sox and Reds

Secondary/Contrarian Stacks: Twins, Rays, Cubs, Mariners, Royals, Phillies, Tigers and Braves

Weather Concerns: There are no delay or postponement threats today but it’s worth noting the wind is blowing strongly out in the NYY/CWS game at U.S. Cellular Field.

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

Bonus: Preston Tucker just barely missed the list because of a slight price increase but remains an excellent option against Rubby De La Rosa and his 22 HR allowed. I also kinda like Joey Butler against Eduardo Rodriguez. Kendall Graveman has not been effective recently so Michael Brantley strikes me as safe. Cesar Hernandez remains a cash option because of his consistently low price ($5,700).
