Madison would be proud.
Yes, I'm a fan of playing to "win now".
Building for the future of course is cool, but too many people get stuck in that mindset and never wind up actually winning. Look at Chadgo5. 9 years. 9 seasons of building for next year. That's painful and boring. Dealing Maine and Hamels is amazingly tough to pull the trigger on, but hard for me to say anything bad about it after he had put in 9 years on that league. Gotta win a championship sometime, regardless of what it takes.
Plus I'm a believer that if one really studies, beautiful sleepers can be found, so dealing away a stud, or possible future stud isn't nearly as damaging in my eyes as it is in other people's eyes.
