As the winter meetings get under way and the hot stove starts to heat up, now seems like an appropriate time to look back at last year’s free agent class and see how all of the off season signings panned out for each team.

So here is the first part of what will be a two part series, grading each team’s free agent signings from last off season.

Grading was based on the assumption that a “C” indicated that the signings were neutral and then were based on the positive or negative impact of the player’s performance or their contracts.

For each team, I named what I feel was their best move and their worst move.

We will start with the National League, be on the lookout for the American League version sometime later this week.
