This is close to good value for Justin Upton. While he is the best player in the deal, you are getting back the next best two with King Felix and Granderson. An OF of Kemp/Granderson/Adam Jones is nothing to sneeze at. And, adding another stud to a rotation with Bumgarner/Haren/Wainwright is a good move, especially if Wainwright doesn't return to 2010 Wainwright yet.
I'd be tempted to accept this. The only problem is the lack of 3B once you deal Youk. Moustakas could be serviceable...or not.

I'd take the deal, Felix will make your staff infinitely better, your outfield is strong enough, and Curtis won't be Upton in terms of average, but he'll come near the power and everything else, and probably will have more runs scored. Moustakas will be fine at 3B, but do you have any better catchers on the WW? Its a 10 team league, unless each team has 2 and you missed out..
Keep C Napoli 1 Butler/Davis/Hosmer/Dunn 2 Young/Utley/Zobrist 3 Moustakas SS Bonifacio/E Cabrera OF Grandy/Choo/Reddick/Kubel SP Anderson/C Lee/Oswalt Haren/Moore/A Sanchez RP Soriano/Myers/Johnson/Aceves/Parnell
Not touching that first trade. Granderson is likely to regress and Joyce is a hot pickup but nothing great. Upton is easily the best player in the deal and could very easily put up numbers that rival what Kemp did last year. If he adds Zimmermann then I would probably do it but I really don't like you giving up Upton.
