The Chicago Cubs made a brutal trade in 2017 and it continues to get worse.
The Chicago Cubs are still feeling the pain of the Jose Quintana trade after three seasons. Fans like to brush it off like it is no big deal but they are wrong. This was a franchise-altering mistake that the Cubs made here by sending Eloy Jimenez and Dylan Cease to the Chicago White Sox for Quintana. It is a bad look for Theo Epstein and his crew that a bum trade like that happened, especially to the cross-town rivals.
It looks even worse after yesterday’s news that Jose Quintana has a very strange injury. He injured his thumb while washing dishes and is going to be out for a while. He needed to have surgery following the injury, Yes, you read that right. He injured his hand while washing dishes. It is the perfect little wrinkle to this awfully hilarious trade that the Cubs made.
