    José Quintana to the Cubs in exchange for outfielder Eloy Jiménez, the No. 5 prospect in baseball according to Baseball America’s updated midseason rankings, right-handed pitcher Dylan Cease, first baseman Matt Rose and infielder Bryant Flete.

    At least these guys all stay in Chicago......fuck the east coast.

    Sounds like the Sox got a great deal on paper.

    I like the deal. Eloy is a top notch prospect and Cease has wicked stuff. Not sure about the other 2.


    I cant wait to hear from The Hawk about how dumb this deal is.

    I would have liked candy in on the deal too, but I am happy. Q is going to a solid team and deserves to be on a winner.

    Watch for injuries as the deadline approaches....the right contender losing a 3B, OF or even a DH for any significant length of time would make them a bit more valuable.

    Oh, and BTW....Hahn is just killing it. Somebody lock Williams in his office till Sept

    I hope it works out well for both teams. Q is a class act and the Cubs will give him the run support he woefully lacked on the south side.

    2 years should be exciting team. 3 years competitive.

    Hopefully by then a new owner willing to spend, to complete the puzzle and fix things that don't work out.

    OF- Robert/Eloy
    Infield- Robinson, Anderson, Moncada, Abreu
    Pitchers- Cease, Bigger Unit, Rodon

    And that is just the core.

    Maybe move Anderson to LF?
    1a. OLB Myles Garrett 1b. FS Malik Hooker 2a. WR Corey Davis 2b. Corner or OT 3a. QB Webb. Kaaya. Russell. Mahomme. somebody will be here at great value. 4a.CB Awuzie Colorado 4b.TE Sprinkles Alabama 4c.RT
    5a.CB Tony Brown Alabama 6' 4.4 speed. Troubled. 5b.Jake Butt TE Michigan. injured

    We had some good talent on shrewd contracts that landed us a nice plethora of young talent. Whether it works or not time will tell but at least now there is a honest effort and it goes a long way for me. The one thing though that will always hold this team back is this odd ball reinsdorf loyalty that makes no sense.

    There are so many Sox fans that have been brainwashed by this front office. So much so that they think the Sox should be buying during a damn rebuild. Right now, they need time to see what exactly they have...some of this kids are gonna be stars, others not so much. But they have a young base now, not a group of overpaid, past their prime, former good players. I saw the Cubs do the same things for years, so you guys are not alone.

    The farm system is fucking stacked. Incredible what Hahn has done.

    Moncada, Robert, Jimenez, Cease, Kopech, Giolito, Lopez Basabe, Burger, Dunning.

    In less than a fucking year. And we'll add anther top bat in the draft next year + whatever the hell he can get for Roberson. Maybe Melky and Frazier too.

    This was probably the best trade possible if they couldn't get Tucker and Martes or a couple other top pitchers from Houston. Good trade, finally excited about the Sox again.

    If the Sox don't scare away young players, this is going to be an incredible team in a few seasons. Just need that visionary manager to make all the pieces come together.
