It's not easy trying to rank the MLB offseason's 15 largest contracts from best to worst.

After all, how do you compare a contract for nearly a quarter-billion dollars to a $25 million deal? Nearly every contract that makes this list is either an overpay in terms of years or dollars.

However, the agreements that tend to work out the best are the ones that provide teams with the biggest impact on the field while minimizing long-term financial exposure. In other words, the shorter the deal, the better it tends to work out.

With these considerations in mind, here's a ranking of the MLB offseason's 15 largest contracts from best to worst.
