My plan is fairly similar. I’m not wasting anymore time and seeing what I have in my prospects. I’m trading Joseph, Hernandez , and Rupp if I can get anything for him. That allows me to have Rhys Hoskins, Alfaro and Kingery up for most of the second half to see what they can do at the big league level.

I’m also not doing much in free agency this offseason, I would bring in a few veteran pieces on short deals and then focus my cap space for when Harper and other big name free agents are available
