Fantasy Baseball Daily Opener: Ronald Acuna, Giancarlo Stanton, Evan Longoria (5/26)

Greetings, friends. We’re back for another baseball season. More importantly, we have a fun new series this year.

Welcome to the Daily Opener.

Every morning, I’ll be with you to recap the previous day of baseball and talk about what stood out to me. We’ll find fun stats. We’ll regret some injuries. We’ll take a peek at the day ahead. And we’ll have a few laughs.
