    White Sox Jose Quintana

    Scouts from the Yankees, Orioles, Royals, Angels, Blue Jays and Cardinals were in Colorado watching White Sox left-hander Jose Quintana pitch on Saturday, according to Scott Merkin of MLB.com. Some of those teams likely don’t have the prospect capital to assemble a package for the on-the-block Quintana, so observing his outing may have been due diligence in certain cases (or those clubs could’ve been on hand to scout other players). Regardless, Quintana didn’t disappoint, striking out 10 over 5 1/3 innings, after which he indicated that his preference is to remain with the White Sox. At the same time, Quintana acknowledged that the decision is up to team brass. “Absolutely. I want to stay here,” he said.“But they know what’s the best for us, so I just try to do my job and that’s it.”
    So, is Lynn getting traded or is Wainwright moving to the bullpen?

    If we're not going to sign Lynn right now, hopefully both of those things happen.

    I can only see this making sense is if they trade both Lynn in a separate deal and Weaver is a part of the trade package. Quintana is a good pitcher but I feel the Cardinals have more pressing needs than their rotation.

    You're right about Lynn...and I gotta think the White Sox would want someone like Weaver or Marco in exchange for Quintana. I dunno if it makes logical sense for us to do this or not.

    So much for that. Quintana to the Cubs for 4 prospects.

    We cannot compete in trades whenever the Cubs are giving up that much talent

    When will their well run dry?

    They still have Candelario but they gave up Jimenez and Cease who were the numbers 1 & 2 prospects in their system. I'm not sure how much more they have.

    This (in my opinion) was the absolute best thing that could happen for us. Quintana is a very good pitcher... is he elite? No. He's a solid #2 guy in my opinion. The cubs gave up an absolute boat load to get him.... two great prospects and two very solid prospects on top of that. I'm perfectly fine with the cubs being good for a couple more years.... eventually though, they will have nothing down, and a bunch of FA's leaving for greener pastures.
