MLB Mock Offseason 2012 - Discussion Thread
 
The 2012 MLB Offseason is in full swing. Frustrated by the moves your team's GM has made or not made? Think you can do better? Then sign up for this mock and become the GM you wish your team had.

Just post what team you want and it's yours so long as no one else has taken them.

Will run with the rosters as of Dec 19, 2012. Any changes made in MLB on that date does not happen in this mock.

There is no Trade Commissioner. If you make a trade, then post it in the trade thread. 5 yes votes, gets your trade approved. 5 no votes, gets your trade rejected. Which ever happens first, decides the outcome.

Free Agents will sign with the highest bidder. Highest bid wins after 8 hours has passed. Each new bid must increase by at least 10% annually of the previous bid. For the purposes of this mock, other factors like weather, home state, winning team or any other comfort level factor will not be used as a deciding factor. Just "highest bid" wins. Don't be an idiot about and spend a billion bucks just to land Nick Swisher. Teams will be judged in the end.

List the team you want!

Arizona Diamondbacks: fenikz
Boston Red Sox: Matthew Jones / IBC
Chicago Cubs: Docta
Kansas City Royals: T-Rich
Milwaukee Brewers: PF
Philadelphia Phillies: Grizz
San Francisco Giants: Borat
Texas Rangers: D-Unit

Borat 12-19-2012 05:02 AM

I'll take the champs.

Docta 12-19-2012 05:34 AM

Gimme the Cubbies.

Epstein's got nothin' on me.

Grizzlegom 12-19-2012 05:49 AM

I'll take the Phillies!

Hines 12-19-2012 05:54 AM

Matthew Jones 12-19-2012 07:13 AM

Care for a Co GM?

ImBrotherCain 12-19-2012 09:28 AM

Also I think it would be pretty entertaining if we started with the rosters before all the major signings.

I won't be participating due to the holidays and all, but I'll be glad to sit here and give my professional opinion as these trades come in

Perfect! Thanks

Matthew Jones 12-19-2012 05:28 PM

So it says rosters are accurate as of December 19, but does that mean we're going to be building off of all of the same free agents as in real life? Or are we basically rebooting everything?

ImBrotherCain 12-19-2012 05:37 PM

Reboot! Is my vote.

ImBrotherCain 12-19-2012 06:33 PM

But seriously what is the point of doing a mock of season if half of the FA are signed. Not to mention how do we redo what they have done?

Justone2 12-19-2012 06:49 PM

I would take the Oakland A's if nobody wants them.

You just want a reboot because your team spent $39 million on Shane Victorino. and $9.5 million on Drew.

Well I just don't see the point in partaking in a mock offseason after the offseason has happened.

How about finishing up this offseason and then do next offseason too?

D-Unit 12-20-2012 02:34 PM

Well, we tried. Guess this is dead.

ImBrotherCain 12-20-2012 02:45 PM

There isn't enough people to really make it worth while.

Borat 12-20-2012 04:19 PM

Should have done it prior to FA. Or we could try again after the holidays.
