The Washington Nationals figure to be active during next week’s Winter Meetings. Here’s what to expect based on our simulation.
The Washington Nationals are typically one of the most active teams during the MLB Winter Meetings, which could be the case again next week. Last year, rumors about stars, such as Chris Sale and Andrew McCutchen, surrounded the team. Although the Nats did not acquire either player, it was an extremely exciting time for the team and its fans.
In order to get an idea of what may occur during this year’s Winter Meetings, we at FanSided conducted a Winter Meetings simulation. All 30 teams were represented by a site expert from the FanSided network, and we did our best to keep the simulation as realistic as possible.
For the sake of keeping everything realistic, we followed all of the CBA rules, including payroll and 40-man roster statuses. We also had a commissioner to ensure that all free agent offers and trades were realistic.
I represented the Nats, and I believe that I did well while doing my best Mike Rizzo impersonation. However, please keep in mind that none of the moves in this article have occurred in real life…yet.
Without further ado, let’s take a look at what moves I made while representing the Nats in our FanSided Winter Meetings simulation.
