Last week I gave out grades for all of the transactions made by the Oakland Athletics. This week, I’m going to power rank them.

What’s the difference?

The grades were for all of the moves made—both big and small—for the A’s roster and for the minor league rosters. I also graded predominantly based on short-term repercussions (from right now through the end of the 2014 season).

This time around I will power rank with the long-term impact in mind (covering 2014 and beyond if applicable). I’ll also stick to the major trades and signings.

Considerations include the impact the incoming player will have long-term and a look at how much the loss of the outgoing player will hurt long-term.
