The Effect of the Jose Quintana Trade — Astros

The Effect of the Jose Quintana Trade — Astros

Now that Quintana is on the North Side, it's all but guaranteed that Arrieta will be on a new team next year in spite of everything he has done for the Cubs franchise. The trade also marks the first significant crosstown trade between the two teams in some time.

What does this do for the fantasy landscape? That's two extra years of team control at what could wind up being a ridiculous discount.

The Chicago Cubs are fresh off of a trade to acquire Chicago White Sox ace Jose Quintana.

Calling the season the Cubs are having a disappointment would be a gross understatement.

José Quintana with the Chicago White Sox in 2012. There wasn't any talk of mechanical issues or tip-pitching, so either he just wasn't as good as everyone thought or maybe the continuous rumors of where he would be pitching by season's end were upsetting a guy who sometimes let his emotions get the better of him on the mound. 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 awful 2.73 SO/W ratio.

Why the White Sox make this deal? After all, Gray has a history of injury problems and struggled in 2016. By ranking, they now hold the number one, eight, eleven, twenty-three, twenty-eight, thirty-six, fifty-nine, sixty-three, and sixty-eight prospects.

Dylan Cease is the other big prize for the Sox, the No. 2 prospect in the Cubs' system and a right-handed hurler currently also in A-ball. Make room for "wetbutt23" and "KatyPerrysBootyHole". The White Sox, meanwhile, sit in dead last in the AL Central with a record of 38-49.

As for Flete, no player was swinging a hotter bat for the Pelicans, his.305 batting average best on the club. Young, controllable starting pitching is undoubtedly valuable, but at what cost? "Bottom line is it's a business and you must understand that".

Rose and Flete are more or less organizational filler at this point. Quintana is under contract through 2020, earning $8.85 million, $10.5 million and $11.5 million in 2018-20.

The team selected Rodon with the third overall pick in the 2014 MLB Amateur Draft and he has already made 54 career stars, but was sidelined with injuries to begin the year. This team must swap some of these duplicate pieces for team pieces that actually fit. "Obviously, we all know they're in their window of (trying to win) championships, and to their credit, they're seeking that opportunity to make the most out of the day".

Last season, the Cubs traded top prospect Gleyber Torres to the New York Yankees, allowing them to bolster their bullpen by acquiring Aroldis Chapman.
