Luis Arm-Strong

Yankees’ youngster Luis Severino opened as a -190 favorite in a National League ballpark so use him and it’ll be a “wonderful world.” Here are my picks for the night slate on Saturday, August 29:

preferred-play

Preferred Stacks: Pirates, Nationals, Diamondbacks, Rangers, Brewers, Orioles, Yankees, Padres, Astros and Indians

Secondary/Contrarian Stacks: Athletics, Reds, Phillies, White Sox, Mariners, Twins, Cubs, Dodgers and Angels

Weather Concerns: Slight delay possibilities in the SEA/CHW game but the LAA/CLE game presents the most problems. There is a decent chance for a delay but low probability of a postponement

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: Paul Goldschmidt, Ender Inciarte, Chris Coghlan, Anthony Rizzo, Michael Brantley, Adam Jones and Mike Trout  all just missed the cut but are worthy of consideration tonight.
