BALTIMORE MD- May 24 Baltimore Orioles first baseman Chris Davis fields a ground ball and and tosses the ball to first base against the Minnesota Twins

The Cubs and White Sox pulled off a blockbuster deal with the White Sox sending lefty Jose Quintana to their crosstown rivals for Cubs top hitting prospect Eloy Jimenez as well as top pitching prospect Dylan Cease. This year, the Cubs have most of the same pitchers with the exception of Chapman, who returned to NY, but they haven't had the same success. Minor league infielders Matt Rose and Bryant Flete also were acquired in the deal. Lackey, Lester, and even Jake Arrieta have struggled this season for the Cubs as their record has fallen to 43-45, putting them tied for second place with the St. Louis Cardinals. After the Cubs got off to an eight run lead, the pen slowly gave it away as the Baltimore Orioles eventually tied the game on a two-run home run by Mark Trumbo in the eighth. His winning percentage is.481, practically the same winning percentage that the Chicago Cubs have this season.

The Chicago Cubs have been looking for starting pitching in all corners of the league, so when it came via their own backyard it surprised everyone. "The overriding consideration was this core that we believe in and what we hope will be a long window of contention". Let us know your thoughts in the comment box below! So now teams will have to consider really cutting their farm system in order to get that piece they need for a run. According to Milovich, he was to be a late call-up to Myrtle Beach prior to the end of the 2017 campaign. The White Sox have spent a better part of a year stockpiling prospects.

Joe Root's low-key approach to England captaincy will succeed, says Alastair Cook
The only bit was seeing Rooty walk down the stairs in his blazer for the toss and realising I will never do that again. Even when the 12-man squad was announced, I forgot the thought and effort that went into that.

"We know in our minds what we feel the appropriate package is for Jose Quintana, and we looked at our board and looked at the prospects on that board and you try to crack together deals", Hahn said.

Some think the Cubs defense may bail him out some more as the White Sox defense is atrocious at best. It's important to take a step back and realize where you are. A World Series hangover effect, if we've ever seen one. South side management has been public about their disinterest to trade with their Windy City partners in the past, and it is evidenced by the fact that the last trade between those two teams happened in November of 2006. And it certainly wasn't good enough for the Cubs to repeat as World Series champs, which is pretty much the only goal that matters at this point. (It later emerged that Rick Hahn and Theo Epstein ducked backstage at the All-Star FanFest to talk business.) Well, nearly no leaks. In short, a 28-year old with 1 All-Star appearance controllable through 2020.

Former Patriots QB Vito 'Babe' Parilli passed away at age of 87
Parilli's playing career ended with the Jets, where he won a ring as Joe Namath's backup in Super Bowl III. Parilli led Kentucky to victories over Oklahoma in the 1951 Sugar Bowl and TCU in the 1952 Cotton Bowl.

Quintana, who ranked among American League leaders in strikeouts and starts, is 50-54 with a 3.51 ERA and 890 strikeouts in 172 career major league games.
