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.
Chris Sale– For cash don’t over think this. Just pay up and play Sale in cash.
Robbie Ray– I like him but he is facing a team that doesn’t K a lot so he is more of a GPP play for me.
Alex Wood– Another good spot against a team the K’s a lot.
James Paxton– Decent 2nd pitcher option on DK
Josh Tomlin– 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
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.
- Carlos Gonzalez
- Bryce Harper
- Mike Trout
- Mike Stanton
- Lorenzo Cain
- Charlie Blackmon
- Aaron Judge
- Kole Calhoun
PATIO’S MVP PICK OF THE DAY: Carlos Gonzalez
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- Stephen Vogt-He homers today if he plays. Martin Maldonado
1B- Hanley Ramirez, Sam Travis, Tommy Joseph
2B- Eric Sogard, Tyler Motter
3B- Mike Moustakas
SS – Corey Seager, Andrelton Simmons, Freddy Galvis
OF- Chris Young, Jason Werth, Hernan Perez, Brandon Moss
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.
