Chicago Cubs reload in acquiring Jose Quintana via trade?

Hey guys, take this with a grain of salt, but I heard from a friend who's brothers friend works for the cubs (sounds like bullshit I know), that Q is going to the cubs in exchange for 4 players.

The reigning World Champion Cubs enter the second half at 43-45, 5.5 games behind Milwaukee in the National League Central. After 5 terrific years to start off his White Sox career, Quintana, who expected to be dealt during the offseason along with Chris Sale, has been playing the worse baseball of his career: 4.49 ERA, 1.323 WHIP and an terrible 2.73 SO/W ratio. He got off to a slow start this season, but he was 2-0 with a 2.43 ERA in his last five appearances with the White Sox.

Turkey celebrates defeat of anti-Erdogan putsch after new purge
The Bosporus Bridge, now called the July 15 Martyrs' Bridge, was the scene of clashes between civilians and soldiers in tanks. Yildirim thanked the thousands of people who heeded a call by the president to flood the streets to resist the coup.

"It's a really good feeling as a player for us to come back with a brand-new addition after a nice break - it's just wonderful", Rizzo said. After this trade the Cubs have none of baseball's top 100 prospects. They hope it will give the scuffling team the kick it needs. If the season were to end today, it'd be his highest ERA.

The rebuilding project on the South Side of Chicago picked up more steam with Quintana's trade to the crosstown Cubs on Thursday. Quintana still possesses great strikeout potential and will have a better offense backing him, which should help his win total. Jose Quintana will be staying the Windy City and moving after the Cubs sent a rich prospect package which included Eloy Jimenez and Dylan Cease, their top two minor leaguers. The White Sox have spent a better part of a year stockpiling prospects. The 20-year old Jimenez, signed as an amateur out of Cuba in 2013 for a $2.8 million bonus, is hitting.271/.351/.490 in 42 games in high-A this season, following a year where he slashed.329/.369/.532 with 14 homers and eight steals in A-ball. Many are. The Cubs and White Sox did what?! Quintana has been dropped in many standard league already. "A lot of it will depend on how we play". Adding on, Quintana has had an ERA of over 5 every month this year save for June (which includes July at a 5.59 ERA). But coming into the season he had never had a year with an ERA over 3.76 - this despite playing in the bandbox-like Guaranteed Rate Field and while pitching in the American League.

A New Jersey Transit train with almost 600 people on board was briefly disabled outside of Penn Station on Saturday afternoon. Work also is being done on switch #89 which was the site of a July 6 derailment of an NJ Transit train , he said.

In 2001, the New York Mets traded two-time All-Star and six-time gold glove victor Robin Ventura, of grand-slam single fame, to the New York Yankees for former Rookie of the Year and three-time All-Star David Justice. If he can post something closer to his career ERA of 3.51 with the Cubs then he will definitely help make them more competitive.

"This time of year, if you watch for prospects that are out of the lineup or get pulled mid-game for no reason, that probably means something is up", Milovich said.
