Cubs acquire Jose Quintana from the White Sox

"We did. We own that". Let us know your thoughts in the comment box below!

After dominating the National League last season on the way to a World Series title, the Cubs enter the second half this season at 43-45 and 5.5 games behind Milwaukee in the Central Division. While Theo & Co. finally have what they've been seeking for a couple of years.

Bolstering Epstein's point is that Quintana is under club control through the 2020 season.

The Cubs sent shockwaves around Major League Baseball on Thursday when they agreed to trade for Jose Quintana in a blockbuster deal with the Chicago White Sox. After 5 terrific years to start off his White Sox career, Quintana, who expected to be dealt during the offseason along with Chris Sale, has been playing the worse baseball of his career: 4.49 ERA, 1.323 WHIP and an terrible 2.73 SO/W ratio. Quintana was an All Star in 2016 and has recorded a sub-3.50 ERA every season since 2014. Perhaps. It was a steep price for Epstein to pay to acquire him from the crosstown Chicago White Sox, but this was a deal worth making on multiple fronts. Who cares? It made sense, so they made the deal. "He certainly never complained, never threw his arms up in the air, never rolled his eyes, never expressed any displeasure with his teammates". With nine players in the Top 100 rankings, the White Sox could whiff on half of these players and still have the makings of a competitive ballclub.

With this big trade out of the way, the Cubs front office can focus on addressing remaining needs while not waiting three additional weeks to make a much-needed upgrade to the starting rotation. Join the Reviewing the Brew team!

Quintana will make his debut with the Cubs on Sunday against the Baltimore Orioles on the road. It means one less cheap pitcher on DFS slates too!

The first thing I do when looking at pitchers changing teams is to look at the overall defense behind the pitcher.

In 1998, the White Sox obtained Jon Garland from the Cubs in exchange for pitcher Matt Karchner. If they get the right return - more than the compensation value of what they'd get when he leaves as a free agent - that helps replace the prospects lost in the Quintana deal.

"The White Sox are believed to have sought from the Astros top pitching prospect Francis Martes and outfielder Kyle Tucker, while they are thought to have mentioned in Yankees talks top infield prospect Gleyber Torres or top outfielder prospect Clint Frazier as the headliner in a package of prospects", he continued.

What is even more astounding is that Quintana is not having a good season. Over the past year Chicago has traded Gleyber Torres, Eloy Jimenez and Dylan Cease, all top five prospects in their system.

"I think we've made great strides in the last 12 months", Hahn said.
