MLB Power Rankings: Yu Darvish, Jose Reyes, Albert Pujols Shake Things Up

The 2011 Major League Baseball offseason has seen some interesting moves.  There have been big trades—Mat Latos to the Reds, Trevor Cahill to the D-Backs, to name a few.

There's definitely been some huge signings.  Albert Pujols for more than a quarter of a billion dollars, anyone?

Jose Reyes and his injury-prone wheels to Miami, for north of $100 million...C.J. Wilson signed with the Angels, a move that was basically ignored due to his new teammate's signing with the same team—just hours before.

The Texas Rangers secured the winning bid (some say by a large margin, others say by a small one) to work out a contract for Japanese-league stud Yu Darvish.

Obviously, when it comes to free-agent signings, trades and everything else under the big league sun, nothing is guaranteed.

Just ask the Seattle Mariners about Chone Figgins, the New York Yankees about Kei Isagawa or the Texas Rangers about Chan Ho-what's-his-name.

You get the idea.  Uncertainty rears its ugly head—well, at least until that glorious day in late March/early April when the 2012 major league season gets underway...

Then the questions will begin to get answered.

Until then, it's time we look at each major league team and hypothesize about how each signing/trade might impact the team's overall strength...

It's time for my 2012 MLB power rankings.
