So it’s settled. The big movers of the 2011-12 MLB offseason have moved (sorry, Edwin Jackson), and the imaginary rosters we long approximated have reached a tenuous finality.

Now that we know who is contractually obligated to be where in 2012, it’s time to take a generous stab at some primordial power rankings.

Did the Miami Marlins do enough to catapult past everyone in the NL East?

Can the Milwaukee Brewers stay afloat post-Prince and with Ryan Braun’s status still uncertain?

And what to make of an Angels team caught in the nervous afterglow that ensconces every super-squad?

Rich teams got richer (Yankees, Tigers), middling teams made their moves (Reds, Nationals) and the defending champs said goodbye to a legend.

We know what each team will look like in 2012. We know who will hit, who will pitch and who will yell from the dugout.

Only question is: How far will they go?
