The plan isn’t working and they could have prevented all of this
Perhaps the plan isn't working.
But that's not what I was arguing.
Graterol wasn't the plan. Regardless of whether he ends up here or not, he wasn't the plan.
No matter the level of incompetence that some may level at the front office, they didn't go into the season with "Plan A" being a 20 year old who'd thrown all of 60 innings at high A.
Nor did they go into the deadline with "Plan A" being a 20 year old with all of 40 innings and a shoulder injury at AA.
