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

12 GAME SLATE FOR HUMPDAY!! ONE MORE DAY TILL VEGAS!! LETS MAKE SOME MORE MONEY TONIGHT

WEATHER:  Monitor weather in Baltimore, New York & Boston. Boston seems like most likely for a PPD.

PITCHERS: I generally pay up for the top pitcher on the slate, biggest favorite, etc.

Carlos Carrasco– For cash on FanDuel. There really isn’t anyone safer. Highest favorite on the board and pitches better on the road.

Gio Gonzales– Love him in cash cause of his floor. His ceiling isn’t enough for GPP.

  1. Flaherty– Strictly 2nd pitcher option on DK.
  2. Jason Hammel– 2nd pitcher option 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

Brian McCann

Yasmani Grandal

 

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.

Joey Gallo

Edwin Encarnacion

Yuli Gurriel

Mark Reynolds

Freddie Freeman

 

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.

Jose Ramirez–  Dude has been En Fuego lately.

D.J. Lemaihieu

Jose Altuve

Whit Merrifield

 

THIRD BASE: I generally pay up for a top play at third base. Along with first base. The most production comes from third base.

Alex Bregman

Nolan Arenado

Anthony Rendon

Asdubal Cabrera

 

SHORT STOP: I generally pay down at SS.  $2800 or below is my mark. Line-up dependent.  Will pay up at times.

Francisco Lindor

Carlos Correa

Elvis Andrus

 

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.

  1. Jay Bruce
  2. Lonnie Chisenhall
  3. George Springer

  7. Nomar Mazara
  8. Charlie Blackmon

PATIO’S MVP PICK OF THE DAY: Joey Gallo

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-   Vogt, Sal Perez,  John Hicks

1B-  Tyler Moore, Tommy Joseph

2B- Kinsler, Solarte

3B-  Candelario, Anderson, La Stella

SS –   J.P. Crawford

OF- Eziquiel Carrera

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.

AT BAT W/AUDIE: GPP TEAM STACKS I LIKE FOR THE DAY

  1. Astros
  2. Indians
  3. Rangers
  4. Rockies
