Astro-nomical Power (From a Little Man)

Coors Field is potentially going to be dealing with gusts of wind blowing in at up to 20mph so consider spending up on other bats, such as Jose Altuve, tonight on a 15-game slate. Here are my picks for Friday, August 19:

preferred-play

Preferred Stacks: Athletics, Dodgers, Cubs, Indians, Cardinals and Astros

Secondary/Contrarian Stacks: Royals, Rockies, White Sox, Blue Jays, Yankees and Giants

Weather Concerns: Delay threats in the MIN/KC, WSH/ATL and CHC/COL games with Kansas City looking like the most risky of the bunch (for pitchers).
