You know what the funny thing about this picture of Erik Bedard is? He's not moving his arm.

Brian Kenny's praise for the Clint Barmes signing makes me think: How can we rank the Pirates' offseason acquisitions? I'm going to put my very hasty and ill-considered list up after the jump, and I invite you to do the same in comments.

Ground rules: Consider the contract and players given up in trade (if any) in your rankings. You don't have to rank non-roster invitations, but you can. I'm not counting decisions not to keep players, but you can do that too, because honestly at this point a big argument about Paul Maholm would be more appealing than another A.J. Burnett discussion.

My rankings:

1. Erik Bedard

2. Clint Barmes

3. Yamaico Navarro

4. Rod Barajas

5. Casey McGehee

6. Jose Morales

7. Juan Cruz

8. Nick Evans

9. Nate McLouth

12. Gustavo Nunez
