Stacking has become a prime way to take down big tournaments, as well as giving your cash game team a solid floor. We focus on opposing pitcher stats, Vegas, weather, park factors, team stats, salaries, and player stats when deciding the top three stacks of the night. I know. Shocker we look at those things. If there is a Coors game on the slate, we will mostly divert our attention elsewhere, as Coors games are the obvious stacks of the night. It doesn't need much breaking down. Be sure to check out or revamped Stack Generator and Stack features inside our Lineup Optimizer and Tools.
New York Yankees - Team Total: 5.5
Oh boy is this an expensive stack tonight! Honestly though, it does seem pretty worth it on FanDuel, where you are going to save some (not much) salary. Going up against Anibal Sanchez, I definitely like the Yankees chances. Sanchez owns a 6.18 ERA on the year and a 2.51 HR/9 against righties. He's also allowing a near .400 wOBA to righties on the year. With that said, I could totally understand someone bypassing on rostering Brett Gardner tonight, but even then, Sanchez has struggled against lefties too this year. Aaron Judge broke out of his little slump yesterday as he hit a home run and now has 23 home runs at Yankee Stadium. He's a great hitter with an ISO of .436 at home. Clint Frazier has slowly come on board as well, hitting three of his four home runs against righties. I like Matt Holliday a lot as well. He's not that good of a hitter, but he has tons of opportunity to drive in runs, as he has very good hitters hitting in front of him. You also save a lot of salary in this stack by adding Holliday.
