The Cubs have won the rivalry series with the White Sox and bragging rights for at least one season as the Cubs won on Thursday night and overall three of four from their crosstown rivals.
Led by starting pitcher Jake Arrieta, the Chicago Cubs defeated their rivals to the south, the Chicago White Sox, quite handily on Wednesday.
As it stands right now, the Cubs may be the only team left in the race for Justin Verlander, though they continue to pursue all possible options in adding another arm.
But what would the Cubs have to give up? What do they have left after the Quintana deal, which saw their top two prospects in outfielder Eloy Jimenez and pitcher Dylan Cease move to the White Sox organization.
