The loss of ace Jose Quintana in the trade with the Chicago Cubs, which brought four minor leaguers to the South Side, had certainly numbed the group. Yes, they're 4.5 behind Milwaukee for the division.
The first blockbuster MLB trade of the summer is in the books, and it is a doozy.
Just two butts. One famous, one wet - hanging out on Reddit discussing the biggest trade of the day for all the world to see. His K/9 ratio is at its highest of his career at 9.4, but also his BB/9 ratio is the highest a 3.5.
Forget that both of these teams reside in Chicago.
His players responded to that challenge.
Flete, Jimenez and Rose may be eligible to play Thursday night for the Winston-Salem Dash, the White Sox's High-A affiliate, when the club takes on the Pelicans in the second of a four-game set. It stands to reason, given his past resume and June success, that Quintana will be back to his usual self during the second half. He has a future as an outfielder, or designated hitter now that he's in the American League. I think it was the best trade for me. If it does, Giolito is worth an add in all deep leagues, and is a good streaming option in all formats. Our goal is to win more. "There was no way to make this deal happen without those guys".
"The reality is this was a deal we were looking at over the long haul", Epstein said. New Comiskey has nearly identical marks for one season and multiple seasons. Another starter might not hurt either.
In Quintana, the Cubs are getting a mainstay of the Sox's rotation.
The southpaw was just 4-8 with an ERA of 4.49 with 109 strikeouts in 104 plus innings across 18 starts. The 31-year-old has gone 58-26 with a 2.71 ERA and 1.02 WHIP since 2014 while also putting up a phenomenal 17.3 WAR over that stretch. A power-hitting outfielder who projects as a middle-of-the-order type bat. So they made a move for the last remaining star of their crosstown rivals, giving up a lot of young talent in Eloy Jimenez, Dylan Cease, Matt Rose and Bryant Flete.
Meanwhile, the Orioles are 41-14 in their last 55 interleague home games, and 2-5 in their last seven overall. They deserved a world of credit. He is the number 5 prospect in the minors, and could be in Chicago as early as next summer. Last year was a year to remember for the proud franchise, but the fan base will not be happy if they don't make the postseason.
