My Justin Upton Trade Proposal

So this is my first post on the Pit. I love the Dbacks and have been a big J Up fan, but his seemingly careless attitude, lack of caring about the fans, and above all inconsistent play make me want to trade him for the right offer. I got eaten alive on an MLB trade rumors board for posting the following offer: Justin Upton for Mike Olt, Jurickson Profar, and Nick Ramirez. I feel this deal is warranted on both sides. The Dbacks get the current #2 and 11 prospects in baseball in Profar and Olt. Moreover, they also play premium positions in shortstop and third base. Ramirez is like a #4 starter. Rangers fans said this was way to much for Upton. We all know Upton has superstar potential, is still only 24, and has shown both extended periods of greatness and extended periods of fan irritation. What I want to know is what do you guys think of this deal? Is it fair for both sides or lopsided one way or the other? Thanks for reading my first post!
