Best and Worst Free Agent Signings

A mailbag question came in:

So far what do you think are the three best free agent signings, and the three worst? - John

Best

1. Alex Rodriguez - The best, most reliable player in the game. This contract will look better and better as salaries rise.
2. Andruw Jones - Low-risk two-year commitment to a possibly elite center fielder.
3. Mark Prior - Worst case, Prior fizzles and the Padres lose a million bucks.  Best case, they pay four mil for three or even four decent months.

Others I liked: Kosuke Fukudome, Mike Lamb, Masahide Kobayashi, Milton Bradley, Randy Wolf, Eric Gagne

Worst

1. Torii Hunter - Good timing makes Hunter an $18MM player.  Doesn't seem to fill a major need for the Angels, and now they have a glut of outfielders.
2. Kaz Matsui - What does he bring to the table?  Just the speed?  The Astros should've earmarked this money for starting pitching.
3. Scott Linebrink - Four years of a declining middle reliever.

Others I disliked: Luis Castillo, Geoff Jenkins, Tom Glavine
