MLB clubs have been spending big-time cash this offseason.

The question, though, is whether these teams have been investing their funds wisely. In order to figure that out, let's predict the WAR for MLB's 10 biggest free agents over the life of their new contracts. 

According to Russell A. Carleton of Baseball Prospectus, "one win above replacement retails for about $5 million." Carleton notes that others put the figure closer to $7 million, but we'll stick with $5 million so as to keep our numbers nice and round. 

Now, it's time for the predictions.
