A summary of the 2019 SB Nation off-season simulation

Our annual off-season MLB simulation wrapped up this week and it if is a preview of the real off-season, it will be a doozy. For the uninitiated, I take 30 fans, assign them each a team, usually their favorite team, and allow them to make trades with each other using real world contract and payroll situations. They also negotiate free agent contracts with me, the most ruthless of all the player agents.

An added wrinkle this year was that instead of budgets, I had “notes from the owner” to give each GM a rough guideline on what to spend this off-season.
