Prince Fielder was a huge acquisition for the Texas Rangers in every sense of the world, but he doesn't offset their departures.

Yes, the MLB offseason is still young. The vast majority of free agents haven't been signed yet and several superstar-caliber trade candidates could soon affect the competitive landscape.

However, that doesn't excuse several 2013 contenders for moving in the wrong direction.

About one month into this offseason, the teams included in this analysis have regressed. Their modest additions so far don't come close to compensating for who they've lost to more aggressive bidders and clever trade partners.

There's nothing wrong with being deliberate, but frugality and sheer stupidity have also weakened these championship hopefuls.
