Way Too Jaime-tenance

With all the bats available on the slate, it would be foolish to overlook a -225 favorite in a plus matchup for less than $14,000: Jaime Garcia. Here are my picks for the night slate on Friday, August 5:

preferred-play

Preferred Stacks: Marlins, Rockies, Mariners, Astros, Cardinals, Diamondbacks and Nationals

Secondary/Contrarian Stacks: Blue Jays, White Sox, Orioles, Pirates, Dodgers and Indians

Weather Concerns: Major delay threats in the SF/WSH and especially the MIA/COL (approximately 30-percent chance of postponement) games with minor concerns in the NYM/DET, ATL/STL and TOR/KC games. The first two should be monitored closely up to game time with the others likely to play without issue.
