This MLB offseason has been like no other—that might be a stretch, but it’s still been extremely interesting to say the least.

A handful of general managers and front offices have picked apart their rosters and put their teams back at least five years.

Others, however, have taken a completely different approach. Smart teams have tried to improve their teams for the short-and-long-term via adding players through free agency and making trades. At times, even, teams improved by letting a player walk during free agency or trading away a veteran for a promising young star.

Nearly each MLB team will have a somewhat different look to it in 2013 compared to last season and in most cases, for the better. Those who will be worse will be scrutinized by the media and fans later in the season.

For the time being, though, let’s take a look at the winners and losers of the offseason thus far.
