This is one of those trades that both teams won. I liked it then and I like it today for the Cubs.

I pretty much agree that it has helped both teams. Gave the Cubs some stability for several years in their rotation at a fairly decent price and gave the White Sox fans some hope for the future with those prospects.

One of the keys to the trade was that Kyle Schwarber was valued very highly by the Cubs organization so they felt that Jimenez was expendable with the logjam in the outfield.

In a few years, the trade will become more obvious how it worked out with the progression of Jimenez and Cease.
