Going back to the first post in this thread, Wolf was a money maker this year. A little one. Depending on your team and the standings, that might have meaned something or might not have.

This is the challenge we all face in the endgame. And I dare say that how it shakes out often has more importance than all our nuanced preseason evaluation of prospects and position scarcity.

I'll gladly let someone else spend $5 for him next March, but he'll be on a short leash no matter what his cost.

Nice NLCS outing ... he's just a solid pitcher.

I already have Wolf at $1 on one of my NL only teams and when someone called him out for a buck today I stood mute.

Prices in Thursday's update: PK5 6, MF5 10, AP4 8.

Just looking at the boxscore of yesterday's game, I wouldn't drop the bid lower. But there's no substitute for actually seeing a pitcher pitch, and I'm sure if I were drafting this weekend I'd be influenced by Mike's comment.

What this board is for.

Hope these prices dropped in the update. He looked terrible tonight.

As a side note, every single pitcher I got in Tout Wars for my pitching staff at $1 (and there were six of them) I had ranked at $2 or higher.

I'm not buying that it makes any difference one way or the other, strategically, with the sub $5 guys. You should buy the guys you like with the money you have. If you get a guy you really like and it leaves you with $1 players the rest of the way, be patient, because as MikeG says, some of your $2 players will be there for a buck.

But if you end up with enough to bump some $1 guys you like up to $2, that's okay, too. The bottom line is that you have very little control in the end game, so flexibility and adjustment are the qualities you need to nurture. As well as going for the riskier guys with upside, rather than the guys who will grind you to a $6 profit. Unless, of course, that's all you can get.

The other side of Mike G.'s point is that leaving yourself (say) $6 for six players is going to mean that some guys who are $5 on your list will be left and will go for $2 because you can't bid them up. We've all done it, there are frustrations no matter how you play your endgame (e.g., losing players who you think are undervalued, or ending up with money unspent).
