Each year, the writers from FanSided partake in a FAKE general manager simulation and your White Sox writers are deep in the process.

Etheria and I are busy wheeling and dealing to bring you a dream White Sox team for the 2019 season.

Together we have set our FAKE spending to $140 million – which opens up lots of possibilities. And, they are having some serious fun doing it.

Will we get Bryce Harper or Manny Machado or both? Will we give up players like Jose Abreu or Lucas Giolito to make hot trades? How deep into the farm system will we go?

Of the 30 MLB teams represented on FanSided, 29 of the teams are represented by co-experts. The only team not in the mix is the Toronto Blue Jays. This means that your Sox experts could go after anyone on any team that is open for business.

The rules of the game are similar to those in the real world, but with tight time constraints. Once a free agent has received an offer, we have 24 hours to up the ante. After 24 hours, the players’ agent – one of the FanSided experts – decides who gets the player. Our offers have to be simple – X years for Y dollars. We can’t nickel and dime the process either – the upped offer needs to be substantial.

When it comes to trades, the rules are easy. All sides have to agree, then the deal is done. We’ve made some trades already – stay tuned for details. We think you’ll like them. And, we’re working on a big one.

We also have to follow the same rules regarding the 40-man roster. To make room for free agents, we have to FAKE DFA and option some of the men on the roster. Hopefully, we didn’t FAKE let go of any favorites.

While we not building any minor league teams with the FAKE Hot Stove simulation, we can dip into the farm system. The White Sox farm system has a lot to offer and the other site experts know it. Will we protect the prospects? Or will we go for the parade?
