The Cycle

Such a short slate tonight, play smart and don’t go wild spending your bank roll. 

The Staff

Volquez – He got tagged a bit in his first start, with how cold this Angels lineup has been I’m ok here. It’s a bit risky, and I do think Trout homers for the home opener. Not many arms to choose, so pick your poison. 

(Risk factor 6)

Mahle – He does have strikeout upside, even with average “stuff”. We’ve been picking on Pittsburgh’s bottom half of the order, which should give Mahle a few k’s. 

(Risk factor 5)

The Bats 

Texas – Harvey is still a fraud, give me the lefties. 

Cubs – Fried has come out of the pen twice this year already. Baez homers off him. Contreras 6 of his last 11 with a homer.
