We're a long way from the end of the moving and shaking in MLB free agency this winter, but some things are already becoming clear. Teams are tipping their hands about their winter strategies. Some star players have already signed on with new clubs; we have seen teams take strange tacks in those negotiations.
Of course, even given all the information we have so far, there's a lot yet to be revealed. Not only are many key free agents still out there, but we don't know how all those who have signed will actually fare going forward. Will Albert Pujols' mega-deal be a worthwhile investment? Will C.J. Wilson make the Angels' starting rotation the best in the American League?
Here are the 10 teams who seem to be headed for the highest 2012 impact via all this free-agent frenzy.
First, we'll select five teams that will look like winners this time next year. Then we will look at who is headed for disaster.
