I'm not sure how I feel about this, long-term. It sure seems like this is the kind of deal that I'll really regret in two years. But there's a chance I'm putting the future ahead of the present. This is a team that I took over this offseason, so I can't really tell if I'm in "win-now" mode; I don't think I am. The team finished in the bottom half last year. Longoria/Bumgarner/Bruce are by far my best players.

I like the potential for Longoria to start putting up bigger numbers, and while Wright had a better year last year, it does not negate the fact that he has been in a career slide for several seasons now.
Verlander is obviously the better of the two pitchers, but Madison Bumgarner is a top-15 SP with serious potential to be top-10. You take a solid hit there, but it is not massive.
I like Granderson a lot, but I'd rather have the younger, higher ceiling of Bruce. He seemed to be making big steps forward in the second half last year.
