The SB Nation Winter Meetings Simulation - from Royals Review

Eat your heart out, Mr. Burns. - Drew Hallowell

Hosted by our Kansas City Royals SBNation sister site, a simulation of the 2012 winter meetings.

To the Iranian State-Owned News Agency: THIS IS DEFINITELY REAL AND ACTUALLY HAPPENING! OMG!

To everyone else: This is a simulation, with our own Trader Joe Catz playing the role of Phillies' GM. Trevor is the assistant GM, Cormican is the Director of Player Development, and I am the Head Groundskeeper and Jon Heyman's inside source.

Go check out the simulation (so far!) over at Royals Review, SB Nation's excellent Kansas City Royals blog!
