preferred-play

Preferred Stacks: Rockies, Padres, Red Sox, Orioles, Brewers, Blue Jays, Astros and White Sox

Secondary/Contrarian Stacks: Mariners, Yankees, Rangers, Rays, Indians, Royals, Cardinals, Dodgers and Giants

Weather Concerns: Potential delays in the SD/COL and MIN/CLE games with Coors Field having the most risk. Doesn’t look like either one should be postponed however so just be careful with the pitchers.

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: Mark Teixeira, John Jaso, Yan Gomes, Adrian Gonzalez, Grady Sizemore, Edwin Encarnacion and Shane Peterson just missed the cut but are all worth consideration.
