With shocking free agent signings, blockbuster deals, and no shortage of clear-cut winners and losers, the 2010 off-season certainly hasn't lacked intrigue.
With most of the big-name free agents off the board and the trade market slowing down, now is a good time to take a look at the best moves of the off season up to this point.
In evaluating these moves, I gave as much consideration to the impact of the move on the team's chances as I did that player's cost in either dollars or players.
In other words, I won't dwell on a team overpaying for a player if it greatly improves their chances next season. Likewise, I'll be sure to recognize bargain signings even by teams that figure to have a hard time competing next season.
As Jayson Werth's deal with Washington does not put the Nationals over the top and was a severe overpay, that is one move you won't find on this list.
