It’s a shorter main early slate, so going with stacks is the
Steven Matz is nowhere near as erratic and bad as many make
him out to be, but Anthony Rendon kills all Mets, and is worth the $5700 on
DraftKings on today’s early slate.
Kendrys Morales is a fine salary saver against Dylan Bundy
at 3400. The Yankees are the stack of the day. Platoon splits will not matter.
Aaron Hicks is 4500 and hits second. Luke Voit is 5100 and is well worth the
spend for some power. Brett Gardner is hitting sixth and you should roll with
him at 4,500.
I will be taking Red Sox against Clayton Richard. I am in on Xander Bogaerts and Michael Chavis. Boston is another preferred stack.
If Pablo Sandoval is in the lineup today, go with him at
4200 against Kevin Gausman.
Max Scherzer punched out nine Mets in six innings on Wednesday.
Strasburg will follow suit against a lineup that should be without Michael
Conforto and Robinson Cano and is making an early start after a night game.
