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
WHATS UP WISE TAKE? IT’S FRIDAY!! HUGE SLATE!! WE ARE BACK!! LET’S GET THIS CASH!!
WEATHER: Baltimore is the only place that worries me right now.
PITCHERS: I generally pay up for the top pitcher on the slate, biggest favorite, etc.
Carlos Carrasco– Me Gusto Senior Carlos on the road against a team he dominated earlier at home and he pitches better on the road.
Jacob deGrom– With the weather looking better you can go to Degrom if you want to but I am not .
Charlie Morton– At home, Favorite. DK 2nd pitcher special only. Lock him in with one of the two above.
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.
Alex Avila– 2700 price is Juicy!!
Buster Posey– 3k on FD is getting to be a little criminal.
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 Votto– Back home. Loves to hit Gio.
Matt Carpenter– Cole gives it up like a whore on Friday night against lefties.
Logan Morrison– Nolasco wakes up and says “ Hey, I like to give up bombs when I pitch. “
Eric Thames- late addition but he is grading out very well tonight.
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.
Robinson Cano– Ohh Boy, VERY CHALKY. BvP is amazing against Jerred Weaver’s BRA James Shields.
Jose Altuve– Berrios loves to serve it up to Righties.
Jonathan Schoop– Like him if it plays.
THIRD BASE: I generally pay up for a top play at third base. Along with first base. The most production comes from third base.
Freddie Freeman– OHH YEAH!! BACK HOME AT FREEMAN FIELD!!
Manny Machado– Get him in your line-up before his price goes up.
SHORT STOP: I generally pay down at SS. $2800 or below is my mark. Line-up dependent. Will pay up at times.
Carlos Correa– BOOYAH!! LOVE HIM TONIGHT!
Jean Segura– Yahtzee on Shields tonight!!
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.
- George Springer
- Andrew McCutchen – ESTA CALIENTE!!
- Bryce Harper
- Nelson Cruz
- Ben Gamel
- Josh Reddick
- Adam Duvall
- Mookie Betts
- Ender Inciarte
The following are all great players, salaries not listed. Order of who I like best.
PATIO’S MVP PICK OF THE DAY: Freddie Freeman
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- Mike Zunino
1B- Matt Adams, Sam Travis
2B- Josh Harrison, Brandon Drury
3B- Kyle Seager
SS- Wilmer Difo, Freddy Galvis, Stephen Drew.
OF- Alex Presley, Kyle Schwarber, Chris Young, Chris Heisey, Matt Kemp, Ben Zobrist, Adam Jones
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.
