2022 SBN Offseason Simulation: Arizona Diamondbacks

Offseason sims can be odd things. On one hand, it only takes one or two participants deciding to go nuts for insane trades to develop or for massive, unrealistic free agent contracts to be signed. On the other hand, what sometimes seems utterly crazy, sometimes ends up being closer to reality than many might expect. Case in point, in the winter of 2015, the simulated front office for the Diamondbacks “went crazy”, jumping into negotiations at the last moment and signing free agent Zack Greinke to a 6-year/$210MM contract. A few weeks later, reality imitated art with the real Diamondbacks jumping in at the last moment to sign Greinke to a 6-year/$206.
