Over the course of this week, fellow SB Nation editors, writers, and contributors will be making trades, negotiating for free agents, and angering fans. BattleMoses and I will be controlling the team and we want YOU to help us with some of the decisions. Throughout this week will post some of the offers and trades that occur during this simulation. Want us to go get David Price? Submit your offer and reasoning behind it. Want Alex Rodriguez? Well too bad, that's a terrible idea.
Any questions? Go ahead and ask them in the comment section below.
Here's the timeline:
