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 Quinton: Please Spend Your FAAB

2

Jeff Quinton

Why pinching pennies early in the year might not be the way to go.

I believe something about FAAB spending and waiver-wire activity. I believe that people do not spend their FAAB quickly enough and that they are not active enough on the waiver wire, especially early in the season. So, more accurately, I believe a bunch of things. Around this time last year, we took a look at two behavioral factors that contribute to fantasy baseball participants not being as liberal with their FAAB spending or as active in the waiver pool as is optimal. In my biased opinion, I think the entire article is worth a read, but we can get the gist from the following quote from the article:

Two things about people: (1) We overvalue the things we own and (2) we are afraid of making mistakes that result in loss more than we are enticed by taking action that result in gains. These are the result of the endowment effect and loss aversion, respectively. Both of these factors make us less likely to drop one of our players for a better available player.
