Correct me I'm really curious. The Lowry trade isn't league official yet and the Raps traded Forbes (still under contract for 1.5 this year)/future first for Lowry's 5.7, would the Raps not use the TPE to absorb the balance or the mini mid exception? Has the team renounced all these holds? I just haven't heard otherwise. Or are you going under the premise of amnestying JC and renouncing all holds to secure the extra 10 mil in monies?
If I were the Raps I would use the mini/Forbes/pick to absorb Lowry. Then use the TPE to sign Fields. That exception/TPE actually totals 11ish mil. After those moves are final then trading JC makes the only sense to get that other FA IMO unless you amnesty him then renounce everyone - which would be last case scenario: which seems to me what BC meant when he stated he 'would amnesty Jose if he had to for cap space'. Only way would be to do that would be to renounce everyone else after the exceptions are used. I think technically we are making all these moves while over the cap.
