Been offered TAlderson for my DWillis in a 20team dynasty league.

I am sort of rebuilding. Worth it or atleast close?

Alderson is a nice prospect although I think he will end up in the bullpen as a closer down the road. Willis looks like he is on his last legs. His velocity has continued to drop over the last three years as well as his production. He has a very difficult time getting rgihties out anymore. Willis is a drain on both era and whip and does not even gets the wins or the strikeouts to offset era and whip. I think the best you can expect from him will be an era in the mid 4's, a whip over 1.40, for 10-15wins when he is healthy. He is almost to the point where he may be hurting you more by playing. Alderson is a solid prospect...his ETA is 2010/2011 at the soonest. ;-D

I'd grab Alderson if I were you. Get some value for Willis while you can, because soon he could be waiver material.

Aldersons numbers are impressing me as of late. Is Aumont available?

Be glad you are getting anything for him. In every league I am in he is sitting on the WW and it is very unlikely that he will ever move from there.
