With Ryan Dempster next scheduled to pitch on Tuesday, the non-waiver trade deadline date, the Cubs are working hard to ship Dempster out of Chicago. The Cubs are moving closer to sending Dempster to the Dodgers and are discussing various trades including a multi-team deal. The Braves and Cubs had a deal in place, but Dempster blocked the trade, and said he wants to pitch for the Dodgers. Now that’s a guy I want to put a Dodger jersey on.
David Kaplan is reporting via Twitter that the Cubs are “moving closer” to trading the coveted right-hander to the Dodgers. The Dodgers and Cubs have been close to a deal on numerous occasions, but the Cubs felt they could get a better deal elsewhere. They were in fact correct, however, the Cubs have pretty much lost all leverage in talks because the only team Dempster is willing to waive his no-trade protection for is the Dodgers.
The Cubs are currently asking for one of the Dodgers more promising pitching prospects, Allen Webster. The Dodgers rejected this trade just moments ago.We heard in the original deal the Dodgers were offering Chris Withrow and Garrett Gould to Chicago, but that deal ultimately fell through obviously. It seems the Dodgers are standing their ground, as they should be, but it appears things could be souring by the hour. This thing is still far from over.

The Cubs and Braves had agreed on a trade to send Dempster to Atlanta for pitching prospect Randall Delgado. But because Dempster has been in the league for 10 years, including five with the same team, he...
The Atlanta Braves missed out on Ryan Dempster and may look to Zack Greinke to fill the void.
The Chicago Cubs are 40-57, 17.5 games out of first place, and are paying over $25 million to players not even on their roster anymore. With a team that appears to be years away from contending, the Cubs have some players that have gathered interest among many teams. Yet, recent developments are indicating that their deadline might not result in *any* of their trade chips getting...

The Angels of Anaheim have acquired Zack Greinke from the Milwaukee Brewers. This obviously takes him off the table for the Dodgers, not that the Dodgers were all that interested in him anyway. Matt Garza is expected to remain with the Cubs after news of a MRI revealing a slight fluid buildup in Garza’s triceps area. He is expected to miss his next start for sure and could...
General manager Frank Wren is annoyed that the news of a deal for Cubs right-hander Ryan Dempster got out on Monday, essentially scuttling it. Wren is blaming the internet and social media, when he should be taking aim at the front office executive who confirmed the deal to USA Today writer Bob Nightengale, who would not have been able to publish the news without official confirmation...
As the 2012 baseball trading deadline approaches, it seems like there haven’t been any big names change teams. Sure, Ichiro, Anibal Sanchez, Omar Infante, and (possibly) Ryan Dempster found new homes, but players just aren’t moving like you’d hope they would.
This promotes boredom among fantasy baseball owners. We need the drama of the trading deadline.
There are a couple reasons...
