A few more things out there...

SI's Alex Belth has the five best and worst moves of the offseason.  The Nationals trading for Alfonso Soriano is identified as one of the worst...

Rob Neyer has the ChiSox as being unlikely to repeat, but then follows it up with this:

The Angels are in bigger trouble, I think. Three reasons. One, they've lost two key components off last season's roster (Bengie Molina and Jarrod Washburn). Two, they really weren't all that good last season. And three, they face Oakland and Texas squads that have improved measurably since last season. The Angels are certainly in the running, but nobody should be all that surprised if they finish third.

And SI's John Donovan grades the offseasons of each A.L. team...

Texas gets a B -- only two teams, Toronto and the ChiSox, got an A -- while Seattle and Oakland got Cs, and Anaheim a D.
