GPP Stacks

Top Overall Stack: NYY
Core Stacks Article: NYY, ARI, LAD
Top GPP Leverage Stack: NYM
Meansy’s Favorite Stack: LAD

The only reason these Dodger lefties aren’t popping on projection models is because this game is taking place in one of the best pitchers parks in the league. However, the Dodgers play their home games in what is essentially a top five pitchers park as well, so the park downgrade isn’t all that substantial. Opposing pitcher Jordan Yamamoto has allowed 50% hard contact this season (!!!), and it’s up to 56% against lefties. The regression monster is coming for Yamamoto, and he also just so happens to be backed up by the absolute worst bullpen in the league according to the Premium Leaderboard on PlateIQ.
