The White Sox are shopping Jose Quintana, and the price is high. The Astros attempted to trade for him, and here is what Chicago wanted in return:
When Astros askewd on Jose Quintana, Chisox asked 3 names:Francis Martes, Kyle Tucker, Joe Musgrove— Peter Gammons (@pgammo) December 10, 2016
That's a lot! And it should be, because Quintana is very good. The 27 year-old lefty has been worth 4.5 wins on average per season since 2013, 7th best in baseball. He is signed to a team-friendly deal for the next four seasons, and is coming off his strongest ever performance.
Should the Yankees try and offer a similar package? The Yankee equivalents of Martes, Tucker, and Musgrove are probably Luis Severino, Aaron Judge, and Justus Sheffield. I think I would do that trade, although I wouldn't add much more on top of it.
Would you? What would be your best offer for Jose Quintana?
