Slate Summary

  • It’s finally here! 2022 MLB Opening Day! Already bringing back great memories as we have 2 games that are PPD from weather issue. We won’t be seeing NYY vs BOS and the MIN vs SEA. However, we still have a decent sized slate with 7 games which we will dive right into. My favorite team to stack are the Milwaukee Brewers. I like bats 1 through 4 and strongly considering Rowdy Tellez batting in the 5 hole due to his cheap price tag at 2.2k. As for my favorite play of the slate, I ended up going with Kolten Wong. Leading off against Kyle Hendricks who is not a strikeout pitcher and had a 5.24 ERA last year. Another team that I plan on playing are the San Diego Padres. Newly acquired Luke Voit should make a big impact right away for his new team and for 2.5k, he is one of my favorite plays who provides the best value. I’m almost looking to target Manny Machado who faces off a very bad bullpen in the Arizona Diamondbacks who struggle against right handed hitters. As for my pitcher, it’s between Corbin Burnes or Shane Bieber. At this point, I think you take the cheaper pitcher in Biebs and spend up more on bats. Good luck Crunchers and let’s kick things off by crushing this slate!
