WISCH LIST: Trade winds still could blow for Cubs in 2017

16 July 2017, 05:38 | Pamela Mathis

With the first half of the season over with, baseball analysts believe the Cubs should be active in trade talks in order to get things back on track.

The Cubs, who now sit below.500 at 43-45, now rank fifth in the National League in team ERA at 4.10, but have failed to receive consistent performances from usual stalwarts such as Jon Lester (5-6, 4.25 ERA), Jake Arrieta (8-7, 4.35 ERA) and John Lackey (5-9, 5.20 ERA).

Of course, the White Sox are probably out of it for this year, but with all those players in the farm for the Pale Hose, they could be back in contention by next season with Moncada, Giolito, Fulmer, etc. The Cubs also sent infielders Bryant Flete and Matt Rose.

"The reality is this was a deal we were looking at over the long haul", Epstein said. Quintana will start Sunday's game for the Cubs. And the starting rotation has been shaky, with a 4.66 ERA that ranks 17th in the majors. And if getting Quintana enables the Cubs to accomplish some of that work now while still being able to compete this season, that's great.

The Cubs and White Sox have not been frequent trading partners over the years, with this being just the fourth trade between the teams since 1992. He signed a five-year extension before the 2014 season that will pay him $8.85 million next season with team options for 2019 and 2020, per Baseball Reference.

The Cubs and White Sox have made franchise-altering trades with each other before. On Thursday they, again, shipped their top prospect Eloy Jimenez, to the Chicago White Sox to acquire Jose Quintana.

According to oddsmakers at, Seattle is the favorite on the road, as the Mariners are getting odds of -145 to win, while the White Sox are getting odds of +130 to prevail. Many are. The Cubs and White Sox did what?!

Jimenez is batting.271 with eight homers and 32 RBIs at High-A Myrtle Beach. "A lot of it will depend on how we play".

He also did this shit during the Futures Game previous year in San Diego. He was struggling at midseason in the Orioles bullpen when the deal was made, and he remembers that Showalter told him at the time that the deal would reignite his career.

Even better for Quintana and his owners was the increase in his strikeout rate from June 1 and on. He's 38 years old, his ERA on the season is 5.20, and his record is 5-9. In 2016, he won a career-high 13 games with a 3.20 ERA.

It seemed like Quintana had been having trouble since being named the "ace" of a young White Sox team, and although he has had some nice stretches in that span it's no question that he performed better behind the arm of Chris Sale. "Part of that process is that you've got to kind of remove what club it is and look more at who the prospects are".
