Atlanta Braves – FanSided Simulated GM meeting
By Fred Owens
Today marks the beginning of a frantic two-day simulated GM meeting with each FanSided site names a faux GM to conduct business.
This year marks my third as the Atlanta Braves SimGm and, if the prelude is any indication, I predict an interesting and in some ways befuddling year.
Though today marks the official beginning of our fake Winter Meetings simulation, we’ve been kicking things around for a few days now. Talks proceeded slowly, I hit a wall a few times and then they seemed to open up – only to shut down again.
I set out to do most of the same things we expect from the real GM, and I already feel his pain.
My first simulated trade as I solved one area – left field – acquired Eddie Rosario and RHP Andrew Cabezas from the Twins in exchange for RHP Julio Teheran, LHP Kolby Allard, and RHRP Shane Carle.
Atlanta Braves ‘add’ Eddie Rosario (Simulation)
The Twins selected Rosario in the fourth round of the 2010 draft and he entered the 2015 season as MLB’s #60 prospect (Baseball Prospectus)
He started well, had a bit of a sophomore slump then found his footing and improved every year since.
Rosario takes his walks and works every at bat. His 17.6% K-rate ranked him 24 of 68 qualified hitters. last year
