Good:
Angels: signed steve finley, he will fit in nicely there. Clement should be an angel any day now.

Brewers: Carlos Lee gives them a great right handed bat between Jenkins and Overbay. Jose Capellan is a stud (he throws 100 mph)

Yankees: Got Mike Stanton who can get lefties out (which they didnt have) also added Felix Rodriguez for depth so quantrill and gordon dont have to throw every inning. They also got younger in the starting pitching are by signing Pavano and Wright.

Washington: signed Vinny Castilla and Christian Guzman to fill there ss and 3b openings. They also aquired a great bat in Jose Guillen

The Yankees have not had a bad offseason. They haven't been the best, but they've accomplished some things.

They got a guy who can get lefties out in Stanton and Felix-Rod who takes some pressure off the other guys as someone above stated. They got YOUNGER in the rotation bringing in Wright, who AT LEAST has potential and who most other teams would have loved to sign. They also bring in Pavano who was the number 1 or 2 pitcher on the market, who's young and has already had some postseason success.

They've also made strides to try to accquire all-stars Randy Johnson and Carlos Beltran. Great offseason so far? No, probably not. But a bad offseason? Certainley not. I'd be hard pressed to find many teams who have had a better offseason, though.

yanks, you need to remove the "yellow box L" from your avatar box, because you do not reply to posts like a fantasy rookie, but like a seasoned fantasy player.

Agreed on the Brewers--they by far have the best offseason to date. The Angels are ok, if they use the saved money from not going after Beltran and get more than Byrd.

Washington is on the list of the WORST offseasons so far. It's been horrid.

While I'd disagree with your assessment, the Learners boxes are so that people can show that they are new, and are less likely to be jumped on when asking a beginner's question. My point?: It should be up to the individual in question.

So far, I think Seattle will be the most improved team...not that it's tough when they were as bad as they were in 2004.
