GPP Stacks

Top Overall Stack: STL
Top GPP Leverage Stack: MIN
Meansy’s Favorite Stack: HOU

This Astros lineup is just way too good to be as overlooked as they will be tonight because of the Coors Field game. That was what we saw last night and, with Oakland stealing the show, we probably see it again tonight. Sure, the groundballs of Brett Anderson are concerning (especially versus lefties), but there are just going to be way too many balls in play with the extremely low strikeouts of Anderson. That could spell trouble if the BABIP gods are even slightly against him tonight.
