    So Stack ATL I guess. Hell if I really know. But they are playing at home and bats are still HOT. Not to forget they did light Lopez up last time they faced him.

    Atlanta is not playing at home. All of the gams are at neutral locations

  • truegrinder

    The Lopez dude for Miami has pitched well against the Braves. I’m leaning towards taking him. Not sure who else to throw yet

    Right. Overall.

    Lopez had 2 very strong starts against ATL, with a shelling sandwiched in between.

    I understand not at home but on Neutral field they feel at home if you cant tell from how hot their bates are. That is what i was referring to.

    What does Randy Arozarena have to do to get priced up?

  • ifthethunder

    I had Glasnow and Valdez in the three gamer yesterday, along with 5 home runs from my batters. Still didn’t win a ticket because of Giancarlo Stanton. So I have him today. Got to bar the door even if it’s too late, you know.

    Well, if you believe in BVP then you should have more confidence in Stanton today. He has a .346 avg against Morton.

    I’m going with one offs everywhere

    I wondered that same thing. I had to play him! Dude is on a tear!

  • truegrinder

    i ended up with Luzardo and Lopez on the mound… Played some rays bats, oak bats and a few LAD

  • got9forya

  • hypegotti

    Not when you stack the right team.

  • Wooden_Bones

    Do we have a clear idea who’s starting for SD? Davies? Paddack?

    i’m talking about my personal experience. obviously i haven’t stacked the right teams.

  • Volkster6

    Game theory question – do you adjust on the fly with the space between games??? Leave salary etc? If Atlanta blows up, and you faded then do you alter plans? Do you also make changes if they don’t blow up if you didn’t stack them based on ownership in your GPPs?

    You could. The last couple days, the only adjustments I’ve made to any of my line ups is when someone ended up not being in the line up. Other wise I’ve just let things be and have done quite well.

    You made your line up(s) what you did, because you liked it. So, why change it based on what happened in another game? Seems like overthinking. I have and I know people will change NBA line ups on the fly, based on how their line up looks. Maybe you’re 30 points off the cash line, and have a “safe” play left, but pivot to a guy with a lower floor, but higher ceiling, because you think it increases your chances. Maybe even do that in NFL. Altering MLB line ups though, based on how another stack does, I wouldn’t.

  • jdtrey

    Davies starting tonight. Which Kershaw shows up?

    I have an uncomfortable amount of A’s, this should go well.

    Thanks Panda, exactly what I was thinking (NBA) when I posed question.

  • SteeloCity

    I’ve pretty much locked Arozarena and Stanton in my lineups. Then a lot of A’s bats as well. Go A’s, I guess?

    Plays like Olson and La Stella are either going to sink me or keep me afloat. Being in the $4600/4700 range definitely takes salary away from other spots I could use it. But, Pinder at $2000 doesn’t need much to payoff. What it really comes down to is I don’t have faith in Urquidy.

    I’m also treading lightly on the Braves, so my day could go sideways in a hurry.

  • jdtrey

    Somehow I ended up with zero Olson, not sure I’m thrilled about that.

    Travis D’Arnaud is batting 4th versus Pablo Lopez, as well.
