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
Straight Cash Homie w/ Patio Joe
7 GAME SLATE FOR MONDAY!! ONLY TWO WEEKS TO GO!! SCALE BACK A LITTLE. WATCH THE LINEUPS AND GET THAT MONEY!!! LET’S EE WHO I’M HANGING WITH IN THE OWL HOUSE FOR THE NIGHT.
WEATHER: NOTHING TO NOTE AS OF NOW.
PITCHERS: I generally pay up for the top pitcher on the slate, biggest favorite, etc.
Clayton Kershaw- Go with the Herd and pay up for Kersh in cash. No one else really to consider on Fanduel.
2nd pitcher options on DK are ABSOLUTELY TERRIBLE. If I had to pick two of those guys that I like it would be Brent Suter and Luis Perdomo. But nothing is safe in this spot to pair with Kersh. So really scale back cash games on DK tonight.
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.
Cody Bellinger- After eating some cheese steaks and doing some fuckin in Philly, he gonna eat some Italian with the meat Pivetta gonna thrown at him.
Will Myers- Has good BvP vs Corbin
Matt Olson- Uncle Buck is gonna get crushed today
Chris Davis-Good price vs Fister( I BARELY KNOW HER!!!)
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.
Ian Kinsler- Cotton has been really bad lately.
Brian Dozier- Facing a lefty that has been roughed up a bit lately.
Dee Gordon- Good BvP against Harvey.
Jed Lowrie- CGP is a top play today.
THIRD BASE: I generally pay up for a top play at third base. Along with first base. The most production comes from third base.
Justin Turner- Pivetta really struggles vs Righties
Jake Lamb- Under 3k now.
SHORT STOP: I generally pay down at SS. $2800 or below is my mark. Line-up dependent. Will pay up at times.
Marcus Semien- Leading off against Uncle Buck
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.
- Chris Taylor
- Mike Stanton
- Khris Davis
- Yasiel Puig
- Marcell Ozuna
- Alex Presley
- Matt Joyce
- Andrew McCutchen

- J.D. Martinez
PATIO’S MVP PICK OF THE DAY: Chris Taylor
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- Austin Barnes, Hector Sanchez, Stephen Vogt, John Hicks
1B- Tomas Telis
2B- Eric Sogard, Chase Utley
3B- Bryan Anderson,
SS – Yangervis Solarte-love him today for cash. Jody Mercer- batting leadoff. Love both of them!!
OF- Pedro Alvarez,
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.
