The Cubs have set the first bar for trades — Blue Jays

Mets relief pitcher Jerry Blevins Paul J. Bereswill

Yes, they're 4.5 behind Milwaukee for the division.

Jesse joined ESPN Chicago in September 2009 and covers the Chicago Cubs for ESPNChicago.com and ESPN Radio 1000. That means they would all be brought up, not included. In his previous 17 outings, he possesses a career record of 5-6 with a 4.51 ERA.

So far this season, Quintana has a 4-8 record, with a 4.49 ERA, 1.32 WHIP. The Royals are in danger of losing a number of their core players to free agency as the contracts end for the likes of Lorenzo Cain, Eric Hosmer and Mike Moustakas following this season. So let's look outside a bit.

This is pretty simple on their part. This wasn't the first time a wild (and ultimately incorrect) theory had been posted to the subreddit - and users like peezy1996 responded with the curt "Highly doubtful".

Then user wetbutt23 jumped in to make a correction: The deal actually involved four prospects, not big-league players.

The Beach Boys are slated to perform at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, July 13 at the Adler Theatre. He may have to go back to Arizona and Philadelphia (hitter's park) as well.

Cease is MLB.com's No. 63 overall prospect. Given how third baseman and reigning MVP Kris Bryant is eligible for arbitration for the first time next year, as is right-hander Kyle Hendricks, it's a certainty that front office tandem Theo Epstein and Jed Hoyer will work to sign both to long-term deals so their arbitration years are bought out.

As mentioned, the price was steep.

The Sox, meanwhile, get more big pieces for their massive rebuild. You are going to be fine, no matter what team you're on. That is just sickening. We make sure we have multiple looks and a high level of comfort with anyone before we put any specific proposals out there. You're talking Jimenez, who is going to be a beast in that park while Cease is going to be a nice arm.

With the first half of the season over with, baseball analysts believe the Cubs should be active in trade talks in order to get things back on track. If you're a White Sox fan, I think today was your day. The two teams also have recent trade history with the A's landing Khris Davis just last year. The Cubs acquired Jose Quintana, and gave up some solid prospects in return.

That is par for the course for the White Sox who have been the model to follow when rebuilding an organization.

But which would you prefer to have if you were a GM starting a team: The bolstered Cubs rotation or the White Sox dream cache of youth?

The Cubs haven't exactly played like contenders to this point in the 2017 campaign.

In case you're curious about whether or not the Cubs and White Sox make deals often, the answer is "no".
