I traded BJ Upton, Troy Tulewiski, and AJ Burnnet for Jose Reyes and Ryan Braun.

It looks like a good deal. Jose Reyes is an elite talent. Tulo, like every other Rockies player, is great at home and mediocre on the road. I'm not sold on Ryan Braun -- too much of a hacker. The same can be said for Upton, so those two are a wash, IMO.

I think you fleeced your opponent. Throwing in A.J. Burnett is a pittance to get those two players. I think you do the Upton-Tulo for Reyes-Braun deal every time.

I agree.

Looking at Burnett's pitch counts last year, yeah you fleeced him. BJ Upton isn't going to hit .300, and Tulowitzki's home/road splits make him a liability in my opinion.

You really did well there.
