The Chicago Cubs have made their first play for the Division crown. They added Jose Quintana from the crosstown White Sox. The Cubs are going all in this year and seek to deny the Milwaukee Brewers their first Central crown since 2011.
The Brewers made a trade of their own shortly after, acquiring LHP Tyler Webb from the Yankees for 1B Garrett Cooper. Webb will be heading to Triple-A Colorado Springs after an awful beginning with the big league club. In previewing the deadline, we believed that the Brewers would only make minor deals and that looks to be the case with Webb.
There could be some more minor moves on the way for Milwaukee as they look to improve going down the stretch.
But the Cubs move for Quintana may have pushed the Brewers to have to make a bigger move at the deadline. Could they go after Sonny Gray, could they add a high-profile name?
The question may not even be could they do it, but should they? What do you think, Trevor?
