The seemingly previous unthinkable has happened in Las Vegas. Hustlers GM Carl Hannah has shipped SIMBL legend Alan Alexander Anderson (above) to Chicago in a shocking deal with Hitmen GM John Bowden.  Now age 34, "Triple A" was the #15 overall pick of the Hustlers in the 2019 SIMBL New File Era Inaugural Draft and spent 15 seasons in Las Vegas being the most dominant pitcher of the decade winning six SL Hurler Of The Year Awards, being named to 12 All-Star teams and leading the Hustlers to the 2031 SIMBL Championship winning the 2031 SLCS MVP and 2023 SLDS MVP awards.  Anderson is currently in second-place all-time with 254 career SIMBL wins and third on the all-time strikeout list.  "AAA" has won 25+ games three times in his career, 24+ five times and 20+ games eight times all consecutive from 2024 to 2031. Anderson has led the SL in wins seven times and in ERA four times including a SIMBL-single season record 1.66 ERA in 2030.

Long-time Las Vegas Hustlers ace Alan Alexander Anderson probably didn't expect to get traded for a 34th birthday present but that's exactly what he got. 15-season Hustler and face of the franchise, "AAA" was traded to Chicago after trade talks progressed quickly. He's the all-time team leader in every meaningful pitching category for Las Vegas and helped lead the team to the SIMBL Coveted Cup Championship in 2031. A six-time SL Hurler of the Year and twelve-time All-Star he's dominated SIMBL hitters for over a decade amassing 254 wins and nearly 3,000 strikeouts up to this point. He's already a lock for the SIMBL Hall of Fame and fans should look for his number to be retired for the Hustlers by the time it's all said and done. Anderson's one of only two pitchers in SIMBL history to win 250+ games and now sits only behind SIMBL Hall Of Famer Bobby Grimes' SIMBL record 313 wins and is in second-place all-time.

"The question isn't whether he'll be in the SIMBL Hall of Fame. The question is whether he's the greatest of all-time," declared Hustlers GM Carl Hannah at the press conference announcing the deal. "Las Vegas lost some quality talent, especially the most underrated player in the league in nine-time Gold Glove (a new SIMBL career record) catcher Micah Irwin (lost last season in off-season free agency to Whitby)," continued the Hustlers GM since 2016, referencing "Triple A's" long-time partner in crime and battery-mate, "It's time for us to reload some key assets and give 'Triple A' the chance to add to his already impressive accomplishments. Chicago has the arms to go far. Perhaps the best collection of starting pitchers ever."

The last part is certainly true. Chicago has 2033 SL Hurler Of The Year, the #1 overall pick of the 2022 SIMBL Draft and eight-time All-Star Joe Tarnowsky, #1 overall pick of the 2024 SIMBL Draft and six-time All-Star Jimmy Wagner, and now the legendary Anderson in a power trio to possibly match the best #1-#3 assembly in SIMBL history. No matter their pitching order they'll start a combined 100+ games leaving precious little breathing room for their competitors. That's 26 All-Star Game apperances and seven SL Hurler Of The Year Awards in the Hitmen's new "Big Three".

Meanwhile, Las Vegas loses almost $23,000,000 in salary and gains the blue chip catching prospect that they'll be rebuilding their pitching around. The loss of Micah Irwin hurt with even "AAA" taking a step back over the most recent two seasons and their once vaunted bullpen serving up batting practice fastballs to the competition. Economic constraints have forced these deep cuts but analysts believe that the trade will turn things around in less than a year for Las Vegas. At least financially. The fans are understandably upset and the season ticket holders are enraged. A lot is riding on the next generation living up to potential.

Las Vegas received prospects 2031 #1 overall draft pick catcher Robert Sladky and former 2031 19th overall pick second baseman Brett Huggins in return for Anderson who was their cornerstone first round pick, 15th overall, of the 2019 SIMBL New File Era Inaugural Draft.

But, of course, only time will tell. In the meantime, one wily veteran and shoo-in future SIMBL Hall Of Famer is getting one last shot at the The SIMBL Coveted Cup in Chicago.
