Stacking has been a popular way to bring down tournaments, and some stacks are even cash game viable. We offer three free top stacks of the night and will provide stacks in a wide range of price tags. We do want to make it known that stacks in Colorado are often fairly obvious and popular stacks. We don't feel the need to break down Colorado stacks and will be more focused on other stacking options. Unless we are struggling to find three others, Colorado stacks will be a top choice but not broken down. We tend to look at park factors, Vegas numbers, starting pitcher and bullpen numbers, and various offensive stats. Feel free to shoot us questions on Twitter at @BrentHeiden1, @JGuilbault11, and @dfcafe.

The implied total keeps creeping up for the Red Sox, and against Jason Hammel it is easy to see why. Hammel relies on a sinker and slider for about 75% of his pitches. There are actually a handful of bats that can hit that slider, which is the tougher part of the matchup. Mookie Betts has a .198 ISO and 73% contact rate against the pitch. Andrew Benintendi has a .216 ISO and 72% contact rate. J.D. Martinez has a .217 ISO, but only a 57% contact rate. Mitch Moreland is similar with a .217 ISO and 59% contact rate. Rafael Devers continues to impress against off-speed pitches, and has a .376 xwOBA, .33% hard-contact rate, and 72% contact rate. Jackie Bradley has a .197 ISO against sliders, and a 38% hard-contact rate. When you dive into the sinkers. Betts, Martinez, Moreland, and Bradley all have over a .200 ISO against the pitch. Bogaerts and Devers both point that pitch into the ground, but Hammel is only getting a 43% groundball rate on his sinker this season, and allowing a .376 wOBA.

Washington is coming off a monster night, and a historic comeback as well. They get a chance to keep the ball rolling, and desperately need to string some wins together. Dan Straily being on the hill gives him that chance. Straily has allowed a lot of flyballs and hard-contact to both sides of the plate. He has been relying on his low BABIP, and major blowup is coming at some point. Straily throws a 90mph fastball about 50% of the time this season, and it is getting hit for a .418 wOBA, .255 ISO, and 52% hard-contact rate. The trio of outfielders all have strong numbers against this range of fastball. Juan Soto has a .545 wOBA and .545 ISO in his small sample size. Bryce Harper has a .461 wOBA and .416 ISO off this range, while Adam Eaton has a .514 wOBA and .333 ISO. Trea Turner had a massive night, and also has a .375 wOBA and .338 ISO off this range. Anthony Rendon has a .413 wOBA and .317 ISO. Daniel Murphy has yet to have any fantasy implications since returning, but has a .576 wOBA and .434 ISO. Matt Adams is back, and has over a .300 ISO against right-handers, and a .316 ISO off this fastball range.

The Tigers offer up some value on this slate, and I like them as a complete stack as well. They have some pop in their lineup believe it or not. Bartolo Colon is mainly just throwing sinkers in there, although at this point they might just be fastballs that don't go fast enough to qualify. Looking at sinkers, there are a numerous names that hit it well and get some lift, not that Colon is generating groundballs anyway. Mike Mahtook has been leading off, and has a .373 wOBA and .197 ISO against sinkers. Nick Castellanos has a .378 wOBA and .180 ISO. Jeimer Candelario has a .422 wOBA and .235 ISO against the pitch. Niko Goodrum has a .331 wOBA and .182 ISO, and has over a .200 ISO against right-handers in general this season. These are the main four I would use in this spot.
