Hahn was patient, and got another good haul. Robertson, you're up next!

Great move for both teams. Just great.

I am sad to see the Cubs be helped, but that is an excellent haul. Jimenez on the midseason prospect lists:

Baseball America: 5
Baseball Prospectus: 8
MLB.com: 8

If it's any indicator, the initial reaction from my intense Cub fan friends is that this was an overpay by Theo.

What a haul! Yes!
Who cares who they traded him to, we got an amazing return and that is all that matters.

I am not an I told you so guy.......

But for those FREAKING OUT that Hahn did not rush a Q trade in the offseason for 1 top 100 prospect, go eat your crow, because this Haul is fantastic.

If you are going to rebuild that is the way to do it. Looks like a solid haul based on stats, ages and rankings.

Cease has a big fastball, lots of potential, and control issues. Sound familiar lol.

On the whole happy with the deal. We now have 2 top 5 bats to go along with all the pitching in the system. If Houston wasn't going to part with Tucker/Martes then I'm not sure a better deal was going to present itself.

White Sox are confirming this trade on their FB feed. It's a done deal.

Wondering more about Flete and Rose. Looked them up and they seem like filler guys in the minors.

Nice return.

The Cubs were desperate, other teams were not.

I still think Hahn could have gotten a better overall package dealing at the winter meetings when New York, Houston and Pittsburgh were bidding against each other, but overall he did pretty well here.

Hopefully there's some speed in there too. Hard to dislike this deal...
