Quintana To Cubs A No-brainer — Powell

But, if we're going to be playing the devil's advocate, here are some of the issues the Cubs have had so far.

Will the Cubs win their second straight game in Baltimore when they visit the Orioles at 7:05PM ET tonight? Epstein and Hoyers believed they could always trade hitters for pitchers as needed. With the trades, we've acquired some very highly regarded, potentially impact, players. The 4-8 record is a reflection of a bad team.

GM Rick Hahn admitted on Friday that Quintana had told him the trade rumors had distracted him. And there is truth to that. Arrieta is 31 years old. He did go 2-1 in the month of June with a 1.78 ERA while holding opponents to a.194/.275/.287 line, so it's not as if he has come apart completely. Chase Field, Camden Yards, and Coors Field he has been north of 5 for ERA while the trade off has been Progressive Field (ERA over 5, but against a stout Indians offense) and Rogers Centre (2.57 ERA). But let's take a step back and bring some perspective to this deal.

The Cubs' "core" includes players such as Anthony Rizzo, Kris Bryant, Javier Baez, Kyle Schwarber and Ian Happ.

Now: The President Casino eventually left town, replaced by the Rhythm City Casino, which eventually was sold and left town.

The way the details of the trade broke were certainly unusual but the Cubs are praying it saves their season. He was the ace of that White Sox staff, carrying a 4.49 ERA.

Rather than spend key assets on rental help, the Cardinals must look for longer-term upgrades to reshape the lineup and fill those gaping holes in the middle of the batting order. That is just sickening. I would say that over the next 48 hours, things ramped up substantially.

The Cubs won the World Series with Chapman closing in 2016, so they can be forgiven for splurging and giving up a guy who currently ranks as Baseball America's No. 3 prospect. They are even further back in the wild card standings.

Orioles manager Buck Showalter said that through the first few frames of that game, Gausman appeared to follow the rhythm of his previous two appearances, when he combined for 12 1/3 scoreless innings.

It wasn't a big-name Chicago sports writer or ESPN that first got wind of the news - but a brave pair of souls who took their information to Reddit.

The Cubs, however, need rotation help and were willing to pay a pretty price to get it as soon as possible.

Every team would love to have Gray. "I'm really happy. I think it was the best situation for me". After winning the division by 17.5 games last year and hoisting a World Series trophy at season's end, the Cubs looked like a lock to win the Central again in 2017.
