We had one of these last year, and it was fun. Anyone interested in doing it again? Basically, you pick a team to be the GM of, and make all the trades you want to to make the team better. I was thinking that after we get all the teams filled, all the rosters will be than locked, so any move that happened in real life before the "lock" still happened, but any moves that happen in real life after the lock don't count. Then, we could do a poll or something to choose who won the world series.

Also, if there is enough interest, I'd add the offseason to it and we can sign free agents, make more trades, etc. Than we could do an even more in depth simulated season and see which GM's built the best teams, and which GM did the best.

So, who's interested!?

Give me Tampa.

EDIT: Normally, I'd pick the Nats but they're horrible this year and I'd rather do a team in the hunt, so yeah, Tampa.

well that's dumb, usually you pick a team that you can make a few trades with but Tampa doesn't need anyone nor will they trade anyone.

EDIT: Give Me the Yankees. And, do they trades that already happened(i.e. Sabathia, Harden, ect.) count or do they have to remake the trades?

Um, the Rays have been involved in trade talks with several teams throughout the last couple of months about getting another bat. And to answer your question, yes those trades have already happened according to this game. Once everyone is signed up the real life rosters at the time will be locked and our rosters will be identical to those. At least, that's what I understood from the description.

I'm gonna say they already count, but if the majority of the people don't want them do, fine by me.

I'll take the Brewers

Note : I tried this less than two weeks ago and the interest was rather low, maybe now that some trades have been made there will be more interest

I think CrosbySucks has been banned, so the Rays are up for grabs again. Also, scottyboy, OSUGiants already claimed the Yankees.

hah, i havent even really read the whole thread. It's up to you if you wanna switch or not. Based on last games interest, it'd be better if there was someone taking over another team rather than co gms

Come on now! We still have a lot more teams to fill!

If there isn't an increase in interest by late Sunday or early Monday, I'm gonna scrap this.
