It's remarkably easy for players to become overvalued on the MLB trade and free-agent markets. 

Overvaluation most commonly occurs when there simply aren't enough quality players available at a given position. Teams also tend to overvalue trade and free-agent targets when they find themselves locked in a bidding war with rival suitors. 

The problem of overvaluation also pops up when teams sign underperforming stars, hoping they'll return to past levels of production. 

And finally, sometimes teams just downright overpay for a player. 

With these considerations in mind, here's a breakdown of the 10 most overvalued moves of the 2014 MLB offseason so far.
