Ill dissent here. Am I the only one that isnt in love with Greinke? Seriously, I know hes on a hot streak now, but the guy has had 1 yr where he was a legit ace IMO. I know he has the raw talents, but hes sitting at a +4 ERA and that isnt an ace in my book, and his current K rate is so high above his career average I dont see it keeping up. I like Upton too, but the best player in this trade is Bautista, so I go with the side thats getting him. When Ryan Braun had his tremendous rookie yr he immediately went in the top round the next yr, I dont see why everyone doubts Bautista. His change in approach at the plate is what made him start hitting that well, not some superficial inflated hot streak.
Is the trade fair? Yeah its pretty fair, you have 2 top players for 1 top 5 guy. If you can give up the avg and HRs and sustain a 4+ ERA then go for it.
