Then yesterday came reports that the Cubs were still pursuing A's starter Sonny Gray even after acquiring Jose Quintana. The Marlins are no strangers to big sell-offs, parting ways with key members of their World Series-winning roster immediately after claiming the championship in 2003. Four of those runs were of the home run variety.
Oddly enough, another player that went from the White Sox to the Cubs was also talked about a lot on Twitter. Antigo is still in the hunt and they finish the league season on Saturday at Everest. He gave up seven hits and eight runs. "It's fun to be around him".
Quintana will make his debut for the Cubs on Sunday. Theo Epstein is of course not saying, but he did say it's up to the team.
"We wanted to have fun with him", Holland said.
Chicago White Sox pitcher Jose Quintana throws in the first inning against the Kansas City Royals at Kauffman Stadium in Kansas City, Mo., on Tuesday, May 2, 2017.
The next big item on the Cubs shopping list is likely to be a veteran backup catcher to replace Miguel Montero for what is hopefully a magnificent stretch run. "He couldn't be a better fit for our situation".
MARINERS 4, WHITE SOX 2: Robinson Cano hit a three-run drive on his first swing since connecting for the winning homer in the All-Star Game, helping James Paxton and Seattle Mariners beat the White Sox at Chicago.
Trumbo, who has hit more consistently of late, knows the team has to win the majority of the nine games against Chicago, the Texas Rangers and Houston Astros that remain on the homestand.
Neshek has been superb in 2017, pitching to a 1.27 ERA in 38 games for the MLB-worst Phillies. The first was leaving Matt Gausman in the game too long.
Jimenez, 20, is the centerpiece of the deal for the White Sox. They have two league games left today at 4:30 vs first place Stevens Point at Wausau West and Sunday night at DC Everest.
"Manny hasn't had the kind of year he's used to having and Chris Davis has missed significant time", Duquette noted.
His players responded to that challenge. Gray has not been able to replicate his 2014 season in which he finished third in AL Cy Young voting, but he remains an enticing option due to his youth. The commission initially rejected the Cubs proposal, but eventually passed the measure because nothing goes smoothly in this state.
While this loss was one of the more painful of the season, the team showed serious tenacity.
Jimenez was ranked as the fifth-best prospect in Baseball America's midseason top 100 prospects list. That being said, Baltimore could be better served by selling from its biggest area of strength: relief pitching.
The Giants will be sellers this year according to president Brian Sabean who named Madison Bumgarner, Buster Posey and Brandon Crawford as the team's untouchables. "I think they're all professionals". I don't have control in that.
