Rumors have been swirling for a few days now that the Dodgers are interested in Ryan Dempster, but it’s a bit of a curious fit because the Dodgers already have Clayton Kershaw, Chris Capuano, Chad Billingsley, Aaron Harang, Ted Lilly, and Nate Eovaldi on staff. All six of those pitchers (assuming Lilly has no structural

The New York Yankees have been riding high as of late, winners of their last seven games entering Saturday. It would seem that things in the rotation were coming together behind #1 starter CC Sabathia. Even though Andy Pettitte has exceeded expectations since returning from the land of retirement at the age of 40, the Yanks want one [...]
CHICAGO -- Ryan Dempster knows the trade talk is out there. But he's doing a pretty good job of focusing on pitching. Dempster tossed seven shutout innings, allowing four hits, as the Chicago Cubs beat the Boston Red Sox 3-0 Friday at Wrigley Field. The 35-year-old right-hander is in the last year of his contract, and he is aware the Cubs may want to move him to help in...
According to a report in the Chicago Sun-Times by Gordon Wittenmyer, the Los Angeles Dodgers and the New York Yankees are looking to acquire Ryan Dempster from the Cubs.
With a league worst 21-42 record, the Cubs are an organization in the midst of a full-scale rebuilding process. First year general manager Theo Epstein is looking to trade established players with value to contending...
Before Wednesday’s game against the Detroit Tigers, Cubs president The Epstein and pitcher Ryan Dempster were seen having a long conversation. The two say they were discussing a fundraiser that Dempster has.
That could be true, but with all the trade speculation surrounding Dempster, anyone who is naive enough to think that was not part of the conversation is foolish.
I wasn't intending to write a post about the Dodgers' interest in Ryan Dempster, but it goes hand-in-hand with the Dodgers' reported interest in Matt Garza.
Nathan Eovaldi has filled in admirably in the absence of Ted Lilly. There's no timetable for his return.
Everyone behind Clayton Kershaw is no better than a middle-of-the-rotation starting pitcher...

The other day in comments here, Jacos put up this link and asked for some captions.Looks like the Uecker Seats doesn't it?Thanks for the laugh and inspiration, Jacos ( and whoever took that photo).If you're old enough, you'll know the "He missed the tag!" line comes from a really funny Miller Lite spot starring Bob Uecker which unfortunately...
Ryan Dempster pitched four-hit ball over seven shutout innings, and the Chicago Cubs hung on to beat team president Theo Epstein's former club, topping the struggling Boston Red Sox 3-0 on Friday.
The Red Sox loaded the bases against Carlos Marmol in the ninth, but he got out of it when Dustin Pedroia forced the runner at third to end the game. That gave Marmol three saves in...
Does Theo Epstein have a crystal ball? When he was talking about a "monster" and the Red Sox, we thought he was referring to some tough expectations. It turns out he might have just been describing Ryan Dempster and predicting his pitcher's performance. The Cubs ace had a monster effort to lead his team to a win on Friday, both on the mound and at the plate. NESN Nation...
When you took a look at the lineup that Dale Sveum put out for his Chicago Cubs yesterday afternoon, you had to take a second glance and say "who?". It reminded me of the scene from Major League when they had the different people say "Who are these f'in guys?".
However, the Cubs did have a good pitcher on the mound in Ryan Dempster who came into the game...
Here's a running list of pitchers notes around the Major Leagues:
– Right handed pitcher Matt Garza is aware that he could be dealt before the July 31 Trade Deadline, but he's not worried about that according to Alex Speier of WEEI.com. “I just want to keep playing. It doesn’t matter where. I’ll pitch on the freaking moon,” Garza said. “I love the city. My kids...
