It is shorter slate on the schedule for tonight with just 8 games. The weather looks great for tonight and Clayton Kershaw is the headliner. There is almost no way you can't use Kershaw tonight in every lineup. The lack of other options is just a start, Kershaw who has been untouchable the last month gets the worst hitting team in the league at home. I know Kershaw is expensive but don't be stupid. The only other pitcher I even remotely like is Bartolo Colon but did throw in Despaigene as well based on his last few outings and the Dodgers struggles with the bats at times this season.
I will be heavily targeting Colby Lewis with some Angels hitters tonight.Lewis is awful and could give up multiple homeruns tonight to the likes of Pujols, Trout and Calhoun. It is safe to say that the Angels are my top stack for tonight. Jayson Werth and Alex Rios are also great plays as well with their power/speed combo vs left handed pitchers.
