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
6 GAME MAIN SLATE TODAY!! CONGRATS TO THE RECENT SUCCESS SOME OF THE WISETAKE NATION HAS BEEN HAVING LATELY. MEANS A LOT TO THE ENTIRE TEAM WHEN YOU SCREENSHOT A VICTORY!
WEATHER: NOTHING TO NOTE RIGHT NOW.
PITCHERS: I generally pay up for the top pitcher on the slate, biggest favorite, etc.
Gio Gonzalez– Huge K upside tonight. Safe floor. Best option for cash on both sites.
Zack Davies– I like him as a 2nd pitcher option on DK. Not much K upside but has not been hit much lately at all. Nats are 25th in the league past 30 days in hard contact.
Marco Estrada– Another 2nd pitcher option that hasn’t been roughed up too much lately.
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
Wellington Castillo– Has 4 hrs off of Estrada.
Gary Sanchez– Rodriguez basically throws fastball and change-up. The goat eats both of those for appetizers.
J.T. Realmuto– Lively is gonna be muerto in about 6 hours. Love his price and batting 5th.
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.
Hanley Ramirez– Weird but 1B is kinda weak tonight. Hanley hits what CC throws best.
Chris Davis– On a light night at 1B you can’t go wrong with Davis at home against a fly ball pitcher.
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.
Dee Gordon– If he get’s on tonight he is gonna “ run like the wind blows “ – F. Gump.
THIRD BASE: I generally pay up for a top play at third base. Along with first base. The most production comes from third base.
Josh Donaldson– Hellickson is gonna grove a couple to him tonight.
Kris Bryant– He doesn’t hit sliders. Newcomb don’t throw no slider.
SHORT STOP: I generally pay down at SS. $2800 or below is my mark. Line-up dependent. Will pay up at times.
Javier Baez– He profiles amazing against Newcomb 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.
The following are all great players, salaries not listed. Order of who I like best.
- Jose Bautista- Has gone yard 3 times off Hellickson
- Mike Stanton
- Christian Yelich
- Ben Zobrist
- Mookie Betts
- Rhys Hoskins
- Marcell Ozuna
- Ryan Braun
PATIO’S MVP PICK OF THE DAY: Javier Baez
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- Miguel Montero, Realmuto
1B- Kendrys Morales, Jesus Aguilar
SS – NONE PLAY BAEZ
OF- Albert Almora, Chris Young, Matt Adams, Steve Pearce
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.
