I figure our rotation for the next 3 years looks something like this:
  1. Sale
  2. TBD (need to develop or trade/sign)
  3. Quintana
  4. E. Johnson or Santiago
  5. Danks (untradeable contract)
Unless trading Quintana plugs a hole we have at 3rd/Catcher/CF- where we don't really have anyone on their way through the farm system- I'd keep him- vs. creating a hole in the rotation.

I wouldn't trade him a for a generic group of prospects- only if it solves one of those specific needs with a major league ready player.
Players that are an important part of the rebuild:
Anderson, Giolito, Lopez, Moncada
