Sammy isn't close to earning $16 a year, let alone $16 million, and Hairston is a decent Util player. Alou wasn't going to reproduce the year he had last year and was going to giving a new long term deal to a 38 year old doesn't make sense at all in my book. The Clement deal is the only one that could be classified as a bad move, but the only reason he looks good this year is because he's got good run support and his walk rate has been incredibly low compared to his career numbers (read: he will not keep this up once his walk rate returns to his normal level in the AL East). I agree that they could have made some more/better moves in the offseason, though. I guess I'm just not much of a conspiracy theorist, then again, I'm not a Cubs fan, so I don't have to be.
