What’s up Wise Take? Patio Joe here to bring you your cash game article.
I am not going to boggle you down with statistic after statistic on why a play is good. I may give a sentence but that’s it. I’ll break down each position with the best cash game play. Each position will have a description of my general rule on how I select each player at that position. What is a good cash game play? Well, to me, it is the safest to hit his value, the most optimal play at each position with price being considered. Next will be a value section. These will be players that I will be playing depending on where they are hitting in the line-up. I then will give you my MVP play of the day.
Finally, even the cash game guy gets that GPP itch. So I will bring you a small section named “ At Bat W/Audie.” Here I will break down just a few of my favorite team stacks. Nothing big.
Please give me feedback on what you like and what you would like to see more of. Be sure to follow me on twitter @patiojoeref

WEATHER: NOTHING RIGHT NOW
PITCHERS: I generally pay up for the top pitcher on the slate, biggest favorite, etc I am keeping in short and sweet today with cash games and where to go.
Stephen Strasburg- He has a chance at the Cy Young and can cap it off with a great performance tonight. Cash game pitcher on FD for me.
Dan Straily- 2nd Pitcher option on DK
Gerrit Cole- 2nd pitcher option on DK. I don’t mind playing both for cash on DK.
CATCHER: I generally pay down at catcher. $2700 below is my mark. I will list the best play but please look at the value section for the catcher I like
FIRST BASE: I generally pay up for a first base. These days there are always high priced options in good spots. Most offensive production comes from first base and third base.
SECOND BASE: I generally pay down for a player that is batting at the top of the order that is $2600 or below. These are the top plays. Look down for value below.
THIRD BASE: I generally pay up for a top play at third base. Along with first base. The most production comes from third base.
SHORT STOP: I generally pay down at SS. $2800 or below is my mark. Line-up dependent. Will pay up at times.
OUTFIELD- I generally will pay down at least 1 OF position $2500 or below, perhaps even two depending on the pitcher. I try and pay up for one elite OF.
The following are all great players, salaries not listed. Order of who I like best.
- Mike Trout
- Mike Stanton
- Kyle Schwarber
- Carlos Gonzalez
- Gerardo Parra
- Justin Upton
- Jay Bruce
- Charlie Blackmon
- J.D. Martinez
- Yasiel Puig
PATIO’S MVP PICK OF THE DAY: Cody Bellinger
VALUE SECTION: The following players are the value plays of the day, which are players where price meets, where they are batting in the line-up. Players that can hit value easily because Their salary is so low. It is essential to have value players in your cash game line-up in order to be successful.
C- Alex Avila, Stephen Vogt, Josh Phegley
1B- Joey Gallo
2B- Eric Sogard, Rougned Odor, Carlos Asujae
3B- Tommy La Stella, Matt Chapman, Greg Garcia
SS – Aldemys Diaz, Freddy Galvis, Brandon Crawford
OF- Cesar Puello, Gregor Blanco, Willie Calhoun, Derek Fisher
Remember if a player who normally doesn’t bat high in the order does for some reason and his at a very low price. I will be considering him, So value may open up as the day moves on.
