It wasn't an absolutely terrible trade, but I don't like it. Hopefully the difference in pitching Felix makes will make up for losing a top player in Upton. However you hurt your RP and now you don't have a solid closer. Seems like you needed Axford more than Felix. You already have Haren, Bumgarner, and Wainwright. So why get rid of your only solid closer?

I'd click undo if there was such a button.

I think there was more value in Axford and Upton than in Felix and Granderson. I see Youk and Zimm as almost a wash. Montero is a nice get, but certainly not a dealbreaker.

I like it. I like Upton the most of those players but you got 4 pretty good starters for Upton, Youk and Axford. Youk is not a sure thing and would much rather have Zimmerman. I don't value closers very much so Axford is easily tradeable. Heck a year ago he was thought of as a bottom tier closer. I think you got pretty good value here.

I like your end of the deal more even if it means losing Upton (potential MVP) and Axford. You can find saves somewhere you get frontline starter, a guy who scores 120 runs and an upgrade at 3B. Well done.
