The MLB offseason's best signings and trades don't always include the biggest names.

So, apologies to Clayton Kershaw and Robinson Cano, who are both undeniably among the best players in all of baseball. However, Kershaw's $215 million haul and Cano's $240 million payday are simply too exorbitant to be described as the best deals of the offseason. 

The list does include some top-tier free agents who scored payouts well above $100 million. There's also room in the rankings for an array of lower-profile players who could prove to be absolute bargains. 

With those considerations in mind, here's a ranking of the MLB offseason's 25 best signings and trades.
