QUESTION: Former White Sox All-Star Jose Quintana makes his postseason debut today for the Cubs. Who was the last Cubs pitcher to start a postseason game after being acquired in a midseason trade earlier that year?


ANSWER: Rich Harden, acquired from Oakland in exchange for four players including minor leaguer Josh Donaldson, lost Game 3 of the 2008 NLDS against the Dodgers, who swept the series. The last pitcher acquired midseason to start and win a Cubs playoff game was Rick Sutcliffe in 1984.
