Ellsbury and Upton are obviously possible keepers as well as Wright.
Manny is a win now player for the 4th place team if he plays. I think you are overvaluing McCann. He's good but not the best player in the league.
Call me crazy but see nothing wrong with this trade.

You guys do give credit for runs and stolen bases in your league right?
IMO, Braun for Wright and Quentin for Manny are a wash. So it comes down to Sheilds and McCann for Upton and Ellsbury. I assume McCann wasn't going to be a keeper for the 9th place team and you can always get B level pitching in the draft. I can see where the 9th place team would trade Sheilds and McCan for Upton and Ellsbury.
Honestly, the only way to stop these kind of playing for next year trades is to not have as many keepers.

I had Upton, but I traded him becasue he was hurt, playing poorly, and killing me with strikeouts. I just find that your teams are WAAAAY too deep to trust Upton's potential that much. And as far as Shields being B-level, he's #14 in our league.
