I say no way :-t

Big downgrade at catcher and would really hurt your pitching staff.

Even without Greinke I'd say no. I still think you'd be giving up too much. Weiters is a HUGE downgrade from McCann. I know he's supposed to "breakout" any year now but with McCann you've got a sure thing. Marmol, though at times unpredictable is still good for atleast 35 saves this year with a ton of K's. And considering you only have one other closer on your roster, your saves column would take a big hit.

Upton doesn't do a lot for you. You are trading for him like he is top 10 talent. U lose out on catcher and downgrade at saves, steals, and sp. Keep what u have.
