Other than Holliday, those 3 players were all considered massive overpayments by teams bidding against themselves at the time of the deals. All 3 of those look worse now than ever (see also, Bryzgalov, Ilya).

I guess you could say that the Upton deal is more reasonable than those 3 and probably in line with the kind of deal you can expect for a UFA, but until you see what Bourn, Hamilton and Pagan sign for, its hard to know how good the deal was.
