Baseball lineup cards are written in a vertical format, so a "stacked" lineup usually indicates one were several players with similar traits or superior abilities are placed in consecutive order ...thus forming a "stack" on the list.
For example, a team facing a pitcher weak against left-handed hitters might bench some of its regulars who hit right-handed and replace them with subs who hit left. The manager in this case would be "stacking his lineup" with lefties.
"Stacked" could also be a general term to indicate a lineup loaded with high-quality players, thus forming a solid "stack" on the lineup card as opposed to a lineup described as having "holes" to indicate weak or inconsistent players.
