the Cubs need Quintana -- or a like talent -- not just to make a run in 2017, but to help all of their young position talent, which presumably will bounce back in 2018 if not in 2017.

Arrieta is probably gone, Lester is pretty old. Let's be optimistic and presume that Hendricks returns to his 2016 form for the next few years.

Rizzo, Bryant, et al need pitching. There's no reason to presume that Quintana won't be a solid #2 starter for the rest of his contract.

I think this is a good trade for the Cubs, even if they don't make the playoffs in '17. (I'm also happy with it from a White Sox perspective.)
