A look at how the wise guys spent their money in expert leagues this week.

Depending on how long you have been a Baseball Prospectus subscriber, welcome or welcome back to the Expert FAAB Review. Every week, I’m going to take a look at the players and the process behind the expert bidding in LABR mixed, Tout Wars NL, and Tout Wars AL. Bret Sayre and I participate in LABR mixed while I have a team in Tout Wars NL, so I will provide insights behind the reasoning on some the bids. Budgets in all three leagues start at $100 at the beginning of the season.

Tout Wars uses a Vickrey Auction system. A basic description of the Vickrey bidding system can be found here.

The Call-Up: Michael Conforto

1

Al Skorupa and Mike Gianella

The Mets look for some comfort in Conforto

The situation: The Mets have a young and talented pitching staff. They stand at two games over .500 and only three games out of a wild card spot despite scoring only 329 runs - good for worst in the National League and second-worst in all of baseball. The absence of David Wright has been felt all year, and now with Michael Cuddyer hurting, the lineup looks shallower than ever. Conforto is hitting a blistering .297/.372/.482 and the hope is that his talented young bat can provide a spark.

"The left-hander returns home" is what every subhead about this trade said.
