The Cubs Gave Up Far Too Much For Jose Quintana

The sad news for Cubs fans is that with Quintana now in the picture, Arrieta leaving in free agency next year is all but a certainty.

The Blue Jays have a difficult 10 game road trip to open the second half of the season, and their success during their time on the road could determine the immediate future of the roster. People who back Quintana will point out his numbers over the last few years have been better than King Felix, Price, and Verlander.

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.

The southpaw was just 4-8 with an ERA of 4.49 with 109 strikeouts in 104 plus innings across 18 starts. And after being pushed to the limit before finally ending the most infamous title drought in sports history followed by a short and hectic offseason, the Cubs have looked spent all season. "Instead, he was always supportive and continued to go about his business and set a wonderful example for the other young players in our clubhouse".

Adding both Quintana and Gray would help the Cubs make a push down the stretch of the season. It's hard to say if teams would be willing to pay more for Donaldson, who is more expensive and only has one extra year of control, but it's hard to imagine the Blue Jays accepting any less. "Now you get to do it now, and it gives you a chance to win in the second half and get back to the dance".

While this loss was one of the more painful of the season, the team showed serious tenacity. There are a couple new hotshots in the journalism game. That is not going to change regardless of which 25 players are in uniform here. Although Matt Rose and Bryant Flete are lower ranked prospects, the White Sox have successfully dealt Quintana on their terms. "We are open to business to all 29 clubs".

If the Milwaukee Brewers followed the mold that Chicago Cubs did, they would be giving up their top two prospects, Lewis Brinson and Corey Ray, plus other prospects.

As Morosi notes, the question marks surrounding the Cubs' rotation moving forward could drive them to make a deal for another pitcher.
