We’ve got 10 games on this afternoon’s main slate. Here are my top-5 teams to stack.

The Cubs are projected for the most runs on this slate by far at nearly six. They’ll face RHP Chase Anderson at Wrigley Field, where the wind is blowing out strong to center. That means we are likely getting some home runs. Anderson’s a solid pitcher, but the Cubs offense at home in these conditions is just too much for me to pass up on.

Players to Consider

  • Ben Zobrist ($3,900)
  • Kyle Schwarber ($4,300)
  • Kris Bryant ($5,200)
  • Anthony Rizzo ($4,900)
  • Ian Happ ($3,900)
  • Jason Hayward ($3,400)


They’re not at Coors Field, but this is as ideal as it gets for a Rockies road game — in Cincy going up against RHP Bronson Arroyo and his 6.31 ERA. The bats shouldn’t have much of a problem finding success today, and guys like Desmond and Reynolds have already crushed Arroyo in the past.

Players to Consider

  • Mark Reynolds ($4,800)
  • Ian Desmond ($4,700)
  • Nolan Arenado ($5,400)
  • Charlie Blackmon ($5,500)
  • Carlos Gonzalez ($4,200)
  • DJ LeMahieu ($4,400)


The Cards are projected for 4.8 runs at home against RHP Matt Cain. Cain has been a mess on the road this season, where his ERA jumps up to 7.32. LHB have a .427 on-base percentage against Cain this season, while three quarters of his home runs allowed come from RHB. Safe to say we can target both sides of the plate here.

Players to Consider

  • Matt Carpenter ($4,100)
  • Yadier Molina ($3,500)
  • Dexter Fowler ($4,200)
  • Stephen Piscotty ($4,000)
  • Jedd Gyorko ($4,000)
  • Kolten Wong ($3,300)


The Reds are projected for nearly five runs at home, going up against LHP Kyle Freeland. It’s a hitter-friendly ballpark, and Freeland gets hit pretty evenly by both RHB and LHB. Stack ‘em up as you please.

Players to Consider

  • Billy Hamilton ($4,700)
  • Jose Peraza ($3,800)
  • Joey Votto ($4,900)
  • Adam Duvall ($4,300)
  • Eugenio Suarez ($4,100)
  • Scott Schebler ($3,800)


The Nats are in Atlanta, where they’ll face LHP Jamie Garcia. Although it isn’t the best situation for those lefty power bats, Harper has homered off Garcia, and the RHB could be some solid value.

Players to Consider

  • Bryce Harper ($5,600)
  • Trea Turner ($4,600)
  • Jayson Werth ($4,400)
  • Ryan Zimmerman ($4,800)
  • Daniel Murphy ($4,800)
  • Matt Wieters ($3,500)
