Always hate that they do this when the offseason isn't over and there are still a few potential big signings that will happen, still I thought it was worth noting:

25 - Red Soxs sign Brad Penny
24 - Tigers acquire Edwin Jackson from Rays for Matt Joyce
23 - Cardinals acquire Khalil Greene from Padres for Mark Worrell and a player to be named later
22 - Royals acquire Coco Crisp from Red Sox for Ramon Ramirez
21 - Athletics sign Jason Giambi
20 - Giants sign Randy Johnson
19 - Phillies sign Jamie Moyer
18 - Giants sign Edgar Renteria
17 - Indians aquire Mark DeRosa from Cubs for three prospects
16 - Dodgers sign Casey Blake
15 - Reds aquire Ramon Hernandez from the Orioles for Ryan Freel and two prospects
14 - Braves acquire Javier Vazquez and Boone Logan from the White Sox for Brent Lillibridge and three prospects
13 - Yankees acquire Nick Swisher and a prospect from White Sox for Wilson Betemit and two prospects
12 - Rays sign Pat Burrell
11 - Phillies sign Raul Ibanez
10 - Cubs sign Milton Bradley
9 - Indians sign Kerry Wood
8 - Angels sign Brian Fuentes
7 - Dodgers sign Rafael Furcal
6 - Mets acquire JJ. Putz in a three way deel with Mariners and Indians
5 - Mets sign Francisco Rodriguez
4 - Yankees sign A.J. Burnett
3 - Athletics acquire Matt Holliday from Rockies for Carlos Gonzalez, Huston Street and Greg Smith
2 - Yankees sign Mark Teixeira
1 - Yankees sign CC Sabathia

Methinks I would of moved four lower and put the current number five in that spot. Also think that while Ibanez is a good addition to the Phils, I'd still rate the Rays picking up Burrell higher. Don't think I would of put 20 or 25 on my list, but then again in the case of 25 wherever Mantard winds up it'll knock it off the list.
