Another afternoon start at Wrigley. It’s somewhat of a shame that we don’t get to include those big boppers in the Cubbies lineup in our Consensus when they are playing a weekend series at The Friendly Confines. An early look at the weather for tonight shows only a couple of trouble spots. One of those is in Boston so if you’re looking to continue riding that sizzling hot Sox offense, you had better check the radar before setting those lineups. This feels like a nice, hefty list of options for tonight’s Consensus. There are some solid value pitching options as well as a longer list of infielders than normal.

Scroll to bottom of the article for the “Top Stacks” section that lists out the teams with the most hitters being recommended by the experts today. Also, be sure to check each team’s lineup when it is released before finalizing your lineups.
