My Favorite Signing
The signing of Vinny Kwon by Boston was one I loved. To get the #3 relief pitcher for only $3.6 million was a steal. He can close or set up and he's a good one. He'll give you a lot of innings and really helps the Red Sox.

My Least Favorite Signing
The signing of Cord Duffy by the Chicago White Sox. He's 24 and is a solid pitcher, but it just seems to me like he was overpaid. He was the #46 free agent out there and got the 9th largest contract of the offseason. He's got room to grow, but right now this was my least favorite.
