Default What is Jose Quintana?

Since it seems to be taking over discussions everywhere, thought we might as well put it to a vote. What do you guys think of Quintana and his future?

Currently the #2 starter on the Sox. When people digest that along with the current position players, pepto bismol may be needed.

I think he's a 3/4 as I still remain skeptical.

The last time I checked, he was a pitcher.

"Tell the people, what kind of pitcher is Ryan Bukvich?"
"Right handed."

It's good to know I'm not alone.

I'd say he's a 3 or a 4 starter, but that's not a knock.

A 3.
But I'd like the Sox to sell high on him if someone's willing to pay high.

He was in the top 20 in the AL in every category that matters for a pitcher. Unless you mean the position players drag the average so low that everything looks awful, I don't see how you can be upset with Jose. He's young, he's cheap, and he's effective. Exactly what we need.

With the type of club the Sox have they will need a lot better #2 than Quintana in order to compete. In order for the Sox to compete, Quintana would have to be the #4 and probably the #5 not the #2 he currently is.

The type of club the Sox have is terrible. If you're trying to build a team with bad defense and bad offense, yes, Quintana won't cut it. There aren't 5 pitchers in the league good enough to carry this team.

Mmmm...there are, but in general that's right. You can't assemble five pitchers that could carry this type of team. But a rotation of, say, Sale-Kershaw-Hernandez-Price-Scherzer would probably do it.
