Starting Friday despite rumors of scratch

16 Julio 2017

But ESPN's piece had no mentions of the Reddit sleuths, and their Bottom Line ticker sadly didn't credit anyone; it would have been something to see "first reported by KatyPerrysBootyHole and wetbutt23 there". However, one has to imagine he'd get a bit of fire in his belly to sharpen up his game if a trade were made that sent him to a contending team.

The remaining control left on Quintana's contract will also help the Cubs deal with the expected departures of Arrieta and John Lackey this offseason. It simply means they should do so while continuing their data-driven approach that has led to having one of the most successful organizations over the past two decades.

The Chicago White Sox rotation will look different to start the second half than how it did to end the first half. His contributions to the team speak for themselves, especially his 3.64 ERA and 1.00 WHIP in seven postseason starts.

Quintana, who ranked among American League leaders in strikeouts and starts, is 50-54 with a 3.51 ERA and 890 strikeouts in 172 career major league games. According to multiple reports, the Chicago Cubs will send new starting pitcher Jose Quintana to the mound on Sunday against the Baltimore Orioles. The Cubs acquired Jose Quintana for Eloy Jimenez, Dylan Cease, and two other prospects.

Now then, it's up to you decide.

Almora has become more of a trade chip as of late. It's more believability with [Quintana] around here. Sure. But the goal isn't to simply be better than the Brewers in the NL Central, it's to be better than the Dodgers or Nationals in the NLCS. He would have to headline a package, but he would not be enough.

GM Rick Hahn admitted on Friday that Quintana had told him the trade rumors had distracted him.

It's no secret the Cubs need starting pitching, and the current front office has been deficient in developing pitchers over the first five-plus years of its tenure in Chicago.

Bryant Flete is playing well at high A this year, but he has already been in the minors for nearly six years. Talks heated up over the next few days before the teams agreed to the deal on Wednesday night. The 35-year-old has allowed 17 earned runs in his last 19 1/3 innings since coming off the disabled list in June. Like previous training runs, the route follows Pershing Avenue because of ongoing construction on Brady Street. Jose Quintana to the Cubs has made almost too much sense ever since the Sox entered rebuild mode.

If the Cubs can get the version of Gray that broke out in 2015, they would immediately have a deadly rotation once again.
