Christmas has come and gone. So who got coal and who got that special Red Ryder BB gun under the tree?

Well we took a look at all the offseason moves to date, and put together our list of the best and worst moves that either helped or hurt team’s rosters.

It’s one thing for a front office to blow a bunch of money on a free agent because they want to make a splash, and it’s another to put together a strategy that will (hopefully) impact both your current team and fans.

Here’s who we think woke-up excited Christmas morning, and others who weren’t too happy with what they got.

Winner: Josh Hamilton

When healthy and focused, there’s no doubt Hamilton’s one of the premier players in the game.

He’s five-tool, with speed, power and range in the outfield.

But when the Angels threw him $25 million over the next five years, it was a bit surprising given his healthy issues, unfortunate relapses in drinking and the fact no one really thought there was a team willing to give him that type of money for more than four years.

Regardless of how it works out, J-Ham’s a very rich man, so he’s got to be considered a winner, right?
