The Pirates have been linked to a potential multi-team trade for Jose Quintana that also involves the White Sox and Yankees. This stove trifecta would ultimately send Quintana to Pittsburgh and McCutchen to New York, with some young arms sprinkled in between.

Here’s what else is happening in the National League Central.

  • It’s never too early to start thinking about the 2017 draft! Here are the top prospects to keep an eye out for.
  • Here are the ten best Cubs pictures of 2016 and yes the task of rounding them up does sound next to impossible.
  • Looks like Obama is going to have to find another backup career when this whole presidency thing is over because he totally wouldn’t cut it as a professional baseball player.
  • The Pirates have claimed RHP Nefi Ogando from the Marlins in a move that reminds me of petty middler schoolers trying to monopolize friends. But someone’s gotta give up their seat at the lunch table roster spot in exchange. Jason Rogers was designed for assignment. Sorry bud.
  • Brewers owner Mark Attanasio took the time to pen a letter to fans, so maybe we should all do him a favor and give it a read.
  • Imagine giving a player a contract through 2030? Well, the Cubs don’t have to imagine because they’re living it. Let’s see how that one panned out.
  • The Cardinals have entered the Dozier, as to be expected.
  • Speaking of the Cardinals going after people, a one-year deal with Jose Bautista sounds right up their alley.
  • Brewers lose Blake Parker back to the Angels, so bummer.
  • The Reds have yet to make a move since the 2016 season ended, which is sad news for their bullpen.
