I don't think I mind the reach on Wieters, but Travis Snider could've been had for a late-round pick and you would've gotten a more productive player in terms of this year for that round, I think.
As for both trades, I'm lukewarm on either. With the most recent trade, I'd hang onto Webb. I see Ludwick continuing to be a 30 HR hitter, but he's not likely to pan out as a .300 hitter (more like .270 at best). Don't overpay for him. Jon Lester looks like a good #2 and perhaps an able replacement for Webb, but the innings jump from missing out much of the prior year is enough of a concern to turn down the deal.
