Default Worst move this winter?

Just curious as to what you think was the worst move this winter by a team. My worst is also possibly my best, the A's signing Loaiza to 3 yrs 21.3mil. It could be the best b/c they essentially firmed the pitchers market at 7 mil per year for an okay pitcher, and on the other side it's Esteban Loiza for 7per.

The Twins wasting a roster spot and giving actual money to Tony Batista.

IMO they by far are 2 of the most overpaid pitchers in all of baseball. Blue Jays were dumb for paying $47 million for Ryan.

"Hey, how's it going? I'm an overrated hacker and an absolute butcher at second base. On top of that I am a whiner. Other than that I am a great player. You better play me at second base. Screw Jose Vidro. Glad to be here, though. Hmm, this place is kind of big. On second thought, you might want to just start shopping me again before I start complaining about the distance in the power alleys."

The Tigers giving $16 million to Kenny Rogers. In terms of sheer stupidity, that one may rival the $15 million per they gave a gimpy Magglio Ordonez.

Todd Jones and Braden Looper. Big money and multiple years to erratic relievers.
