preferred-play

Preferred Stacks: Dodgers, Astros, Yankees, Giants, Blue Jays, Royals, Cardinals and Nationals

Secondary/Contrarian Stacks: Brewers, Red Sox, Pirates, Cubs, Mets, Tigers and Diamondbacks

Weather Concerns: The SF/ATL and STL/CIN games have a reasonable threat for thunderstorms, so they need to be monitored closely before deploying players (especially pitchers) from both.

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: Alejandro De Aza and David Ortiz just missed the cut but find themselves facing a rookie RHP in Yankee Stadium.
