Cubs pay massive price to acquire Jose Quintana from White Sox

Theo Epstein the president of baseball operations with the Cubs said the trade was not completed because of how the team played during the first half of the season.

Entering Friday, the Cubs (43-45) trailed Milwaukee by 5 ½ games in the National League Central.

Quintana has struggled so far this season, posting a 4-8 record and a 4.49 ERA, but since arriving on the South Side in 2012 he has been a front-end starter. He was in his sixth season with the Sox and was the No. 1 starter for them this season.

Dylan Cease is the other big prize for the Sox, the No. 2 prospect in the Cubs' system and a right-handed hurler now also in A-ball. "I think they're all professionals".

The victor for the White Sox could be top prospect Lucas Giolito.

On Tuesday, Donald Trump Jr released the entire email chain leading up to the meeting - causing a media storm in Washington . Almost eight decades later, the same can be said about the Trump administration's relationships with Russian Federation .

If the Cubs can get the version of Gray that broke out in 2015, they would immediately have a deadly rotation once again. Coupling Quintana with long-term assets like Lester and Kyle Hendricks gives the Cubs a leg up on next year and beyond.

Chicago received Quintana in return, a 28-year-old lefty with a solid track record.

But Quintana was one of the most well-liked players in the White Sox clubhouse, and the finality of the pitcher's long-rumored trade hit some players hard.

Chicago parted ways with top prospect Eloy Jimenez and pitcher Dylan Cease, so a deal might involve a big league talent. 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.

Jimenez was the Cubs top hitting prospect, batting.271 with eight home runs and 32 RBIs at high-A and Cease was the team's top pitching prospect, who was 1-2 with a 2.79 ERA in Single-A.

NOAA Suspends Whale Rescue Efforts After Rescuer's Death
As well, the government has imposed a partial closure within a nearby snow crab fishing area that whales are known to frequent. A group of wildlife veterinarians said that several of these whales showed signs of blunt trauma, the National Post reported.

Add in the fact that Jimenez, 20, is the No. 5 prospect in all of baseball according to ESPN's Keith Law and Baseball America and you have the potential for a deal that will be scrutinized for years to come. Many are. The Cubs and White Sox did what?!

On the other end of the spectrum, the Cubs get one of the best pitchers on the market to shore up their rotation, and he's signed through the 2020 season at a bargain price.

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. All three were acquired in trades over the past year. Going into the All-Star break below.500 in a awful division despite relatively good team health, THAT created the urgency. They have plenty of work to do to get their own operation back on a winning track. But the Quintana deal is a mess.

Bryant Flete is playing well at high A this year, but he has already been in the minors for almost six years.
