    #WhiteSox have acquired OF Eloy Jiménez, RHP Dylan Cease, 1B Matt Rose & INF Bryant Flete from the Cubs in exchange for LHP José Quintana.

    Outfielder Eloy Jiménez is the No. 5 prospect in baseball according to Baseball America’s updated midseason rankings.

    Solid haul for the Sox. Two top 50-75 prospects.

    Ahh Jimenez is one of the top prospects in all of baseball with 40 HR power. Cease could be a #2 someday.

    Cubs sent too much over in my opinion.

    I thought the same.

    Sox now have 8 of the top 65 prospects according to MLB.com...

    Q has been up and down his year, good contract though. A lot of Cubs fans on Twitter are shocked, Jimenez was supposed to be their future jewel. Guess their pitching, or lack thereof, forced their hand.

    I'm disappointed we gave up Eloy. I guess we're in the "win now" mode while we have Rizz, KB, Russell, Baez, etc. under team control. I still look for us to move Schwarber or Happ.

    Dude hit the lights ala Roy Hobbs in the minor league HR derby. I wanted to see him at GABP.

    I guess this means the Cubs are more sold on Hayward, Happ and Schwarber in the OF. At least on Heyward and Happ. Maybe they really are intending on going after Harper when he becomes a free agent.

    Does this really improve the Cubs pitching all that much?

    Arrieta, Hendricks, Lester, and Lackey have all been average at best when they've been healthy. Quintana is having his worst season (statistically) of his career.

    Narrows the gap with Milwaukee, I think that's all they wanted.

    He went 13-12 with a 3.20 ERA last season and he's 4-8 with a 4.49 ERA and you trade all that for him? I could understand if it was Verlander or Gray but Quintana? You have to be kidding me....What are you thinking Theo?



    WOW.....

    His last 7 starts 2.70 ERA, 1.20 WHIP and 10.13 K/9...He's also under contract until 2020

    Have to be unloading players to go all in on Harper
