Hypothetical Braves-Reds-Rockies trade

I know hypothetical trade proposals can get old fast, but I've been thinking about this idea since I've heard Yonder Alonso could be available for a pitcher.

I don't see a team in this scenario that wouldn't like what they end up with.

Reds receive:

Jair Jurrjens

 

Rockies receive:

Yonder Alonso

Martin Prado

 

Braves receive:

Dexter Fowler

Nolan Arenado

B-level prospect from Reds

B-level prospect from Rockies

 

Reds perspective: Give up a great prospect that has no position with the team, as well as a middle-level prospect, but gain a legitimate number 2 starting pitcher.

 

Rockies perspective: Give up a good young outfielder, although they have plenty of other OF options for now and the future.  Also give up a top 3B prospect, but have internal options at that position as well.  In return they get another top prospect, with a much bigger bat, and an opening in the near future due to 38-year-old Todd Helton.  Also receive an above average starting 2B that can defend and hit.

 

Braves perspective: Give up two good players, however both players come from positions of depth (Uggla at 2B, Jones at 3B, tons of SP)  In return they get a player who can immediately play LF, as well as shift to CF when they lose Bourn to free agency.  Also get a long-term 3B to replace Chipper Jones when he retires in the near future. The two B-level prospects will even the trade value wise, since they are arguably giving up the two best current major leaguers in the deal (of course that is debatable both ways).

 

Do you all feel this trade is fair to all teams involved?  If not, how would you modify it?
