The game of baseball is considered a team game and that can be said for fantasy baseball as well. The idea behind using a stack from one team could worry some fantasy owners, but for others it is key to building that winning daily lineup. The key to using this technique is to monitor how all 30 MLB teams are playing as well as who that team will be facing on the mound.
The one key stat line for MLB lineups t follow is how they have faired as a whole over the past seven days. If a team is on fire the ability for others struggling to start to produce is much higher, allowing the chance to possibly find a cheaper player to build your roster around.
Now this gives us a chance to take a look a few teams that you could pick three or four players from over the next couple days.

Chicago White Sox VS Miguel Gonzalez, Baltimore Orioles: Over his last three starts Gonzalez has allowed eight earned runs in 16.2 innings, including a pair of home runs in his last outing. Gonzalez has also struggled with his command allowing eight walks over that stretch. This gives fantasy owners a chance to use a stack of players from the White Sox who have combined to hit .273 in the teams last six games.

Baltimore Orioles VS Hector Noesi, Chicago White Sox: The Orioles have smashed the ball over the past seven days including 12 home runs. The other bright spot is J.J. Hardy hit his first home run of the season on Saturday after leading AL short stops the past two years. In two of his past three starts Noesi has allowed four earned runs, including three on June 9th. If the Orioles can get Hardy along with Chris Davis back on the power track this team could put up a bunch of home runs down the stretch.

Los Angeles Angels VS Ricky Nolasco, Minnesota Twins: The Angels are hitting .273 over their past six games with 10 home runs, 13 doubles and 29 runs driven in. On Thursday they will face the veteran right hander Ricky Nolasco, who has allowed at least three runs in three of his last four starts including two games with at least two home runs allowed. C.J. Cron has led the punch with three home runs and three runs batted in for the Angels in four games played.
