Cubs receive: Sonny Gray

Rays receive: Eloy Jimenez OF (#20 MLB, #2 Cubs), Jeimer Candelario INF (#99 MLB, #4 Cubs), Oscar De La Cruz RHP (#7 Cubs), Trevor Clifton RHP (Cubs #8), Matt Szczur OF

Cubs get their controllable starting pitcher and.
A's get a very good OF prospect, an MLB ready INF, a couple solid pitching prospects, and Szczur can platoon with newly acquired Matt Joyce in right field.

Quantity doesn't equal quality.

Athletics are asking for the moon for Gray. This is like the top of some mountain in West Virginia.

Pretty good haul for the Rays considering they don't have to give anyone up😂.

Seems like a lot to give up for someone that stuggled last year. I see them going after Oderizzi instead.

But after signing Koji and already signing Dunsing i think that it shows that they are confident in Montgumery in the rotation.

I had a Rays trade with the Cubs before and then decided to go with Gray. I have A's in the second part, just forgot to change it at the top.

Huge overpay for a middling pitcher. Eloy alone would be an overpay. Gray is not worth much, even if he hadn't struggled last year. He's beginning to suffer from TLS (Tim Lincecum Syndrome) . Little guy that started out like gangbusters, but then his small stature caught up with him. It's a tale as old as time in MLB and only the beginning of a major downturn in his career. Mark my words.
