Quick advice

Postby mfisher17 » Thu Jul 25, 2013 7:21 pm

Just looking to bounce something off of everyone.

I compete in a 18 team dynasty, H2H 6x6 (Standard plus HLDS and OPS)

I am building for the future, but the parity in the league is tough. You have the contenders who trade their prospects and then you have teams hoarding prospects. So to land a top prospect, it costs more than one would like.

I have Iwakuma on a roster that won't compete. Albert Almora (a prospect I love) is being offered up in return for Iwakuma...am I nuts for taking it? WHIR

I'm taking this deal. Iwakuma is having a decent year for a bad team that doesn't look like it will contend for a while, he's no spring chicken either. If I'm building for the future I take Almora in a heart beat!

I would ask for a servicable arm back in the deal as well so you can at least get some kind of major league talent. I don't think a servicable young arm along the lines of an Alex Cobb, Zach Wheeler or the like would be too much in addition to ask for.
