I would like to start off with a song today if I can. Don't worry it won't be me singing though I hope you can all hear me in spirit. Here is a song that sums up my mood on this August day: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CuEqy8JoAcw 

All right...now that I have that off of my chest let's get into tonight's MLB games. For starters there is NO PITCHING tonight. When Danny Salazar is your top pitcher something you would think is wrong with the system. No, there are just no aces or even solid top of the rotation pitchers going tonight. The safest play is probably Doug Fister but he has limited K potential and costs a bit more than Salazar. 

The good news is that you can easily use both of these guys and still load up on bats tonight. In my opinion it will be the sticks and the random arm that pops off out of nowhere who take down the big prizes tonight. Thus, I am limiting my action to only double ups this evening. I have no interest in swinging for the fences when the wind is blowinig in at 50 MPH.
