Cleveland Indians' Biggest Winners and Losers of the Offseason so Far

The Indians have quite a few more losers than winners this offseason.

This is largely the result of the front office's apparent readiness to sit idly by as teams in the American League—and more importantly the AL Central—get better.

The Indians have made one move that will actually help the team, and that's the signing of David Murphy.

Signing John Axford looks to be a wash given his recent track record in comparison to former Indians' closer Chris Perez, and the rest of the signings help only to improve minor-league depth.

Because the offseason is drawing closer and closer to its end, we can assess the team and find who won and lost the offseason—at least to this point anyway—and that's just what we've done here. So sit back and enjoy, or possibly weep, as this offseason's winners and losers are dished out over the next seven slides.
