Was getting rid of Maine a good deal or a bad deal for Massachusetts?

Well, they didn't exactly "get rid of" it.
The whole thing was part of the Missouri Compromise.
Considering the longstanding trade relationships between the two states, I don't think it worked out too badly for Massachusetts.

A bad deal, at least they still have a semblance of political common sense
