The Milwaukee Brewers are still my second favorite stack of the day. Pomeranz really stinks right now and doesn’t show any sign of improving. Pomeranz has a 7.16 ERA on the year, and an 11.37 ERA over his last two starts and his splits are clearly advantageous towards right-handed batters. Now, our last question should be who are the hottest right-handed batters on Milwaukee at the moment? Mike Moustakas has three homers in the past week and Yelich’s average is through the roof at .345 over his last seven games. Late night hammer.

The Colorado Rockies are in an amazing spot tonight against Cal Quantrill. This was my write up from this morning about the Rockies, “We’re going to start with stacks as we lock in my favorite of the night, the Colorado Rockies. The Rockies are facing Cal Quantrill. He is a right-handed rookie who has yet to play in a stadium like Coors. We saw a high-scoring affair last night and you can expect another one tonight for the Rockies. Quantrill’s Splits are clearly more advantageous towards left-handed batters, as he’s allowing a .333 BA to opposing lefties with three home runs in 63 at-bats. San Diego used four of their relievers last night to carry them through 5.2 innings and allowed nine runs by the end of it all. I think you can expect a similar output tonight against the rookie right hander.” All of this still applies and I still love me some Rockies. I would recommend hedging with minimal shares of Quantrill but there are not many scenarios where I don’t see these Rockies knocking this kid around. And after a three-game series in Coors, we know that San Diego’s bullpen is tired. If you have the salary be confident in getting solid production from these Colorado left-handed bats.

Remember, the Mets are finishing the game from last night today at 6:10 pm EST. This is a unique situation that I think is worth taking advantage of. Consider them finishing this game today like a three inning scrimmage, I think this will really warm up both New York’s and St. Louis bats. My one off of the day is Paul DeJong for this and other reasons. DeJong is killing Matz in very small sample sizes but in six at-bats DeJong is four for five with one double and two home runs against Matz. After homering last night and homering three times over his past seven games, I really like DeJong for a home run tonight even if it is in Citifield, who knows I might even take the seven train out there because DeJong is in many of my lineups at the moment and I see no reason to take him out especially at $3,800 on FanDuel and $4,200 on DraftKings.

Can we stack against Scherzer? Okay, here’s what I’ll say. Risky move for sure, but if executed properly it could be sneaky tonight. Washington has the leagues worst ranked bullpen which carries a 6.29 ERA on the year, so if you get past Scherzer you’re golden. Now, Dyson has been on fire and Jones and Peralta carry solid BvP stats against Scherzer batting a combined .367 BA with six home runs between the two. This will be a lowed owned play for sure as Scherzer is not someone that you typically want to stack against but like I said, behind Scherzer is one horrible bullpen. So the Sky’s the limit if the Diamondbacks can knock Scherzer out early. The Washington Nationals are favored by -175 with a 7.5 under/over.
No Mookie tonight for Boston. This does one of two things: Hurts the offense or creates value and tonight against Baltimore’s AAA rookie and the fifth worst bullpen in the majors, I don’t think one player will hinder this offense so, value it is. Chavis is leading off and I think he is a lock tonight in all formats. Next Devers and Martinez look very appealing to me. Holt made his way into the lineup and Vasquez is in the seven hole. Solid value all over this lineup, especially for a 10 under/over favored by -260. This could and should be chalk, so have the right pieces of this Boston Red Sox stack.
