Why the Cubs will trade Ryan Dempster for whatever they can get

I'm sure everyone is as tired of the Ryan Dempster Saga as I am, but all along I had been assuming offering him arbitration at the end of the season was a no-brainer for the Cubs. If they can't get at least something decent in return, they could offer arbitration and would receive a supplemental pick in next year's draft if he declined. I had also assumed Dempster would...

The Dempster stalemate - and why it's bad for the Cubs

The Chicago Cubs are running out of desirable choices as they seek to move right-hander Ryan Dempster. The team had a trade in place to send Dempster to the Atlanta Braves, but the pitcher does not want to go to Atlanta, according to major-league sources – and, as a player with 10 years of service, the last five with the same team, he has the right to reject any deal. Dempster’s...

The Cubs' trade deadline could be a disaster

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 Cubs need SERENITY NOW

No need to blow smoke, let’s just go. • Sure, it would have been nice for Demp to swiftly agree to play for the Braves, but yet again, the Cubs have to get dragged through the “no-trade-clause” haze. And as a fan, it sucks. • I remember waiting for the Crime Dog to finally agree back to come to Chicago in ’01 while Aramis didn’t really give a flying frog about playing...

Colletti Switching Focus To Shields, Willingham, Morneau

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...

Dodgers, Cubs Still Talking Dempster, Soriano, LaHair

The Dodgers and Cubs have been working diligently on a trade for Ryan Dempster. Talks have been going for over a month now, that of course has led to what now is a major impasse. We’ve heard the dialogue between the two teams has come to almost a complete halt, though both sides still hope they can come to a deal. The Dodgers have talked multiple scenarios with the Cubs, involving...

Braves seeking starting pitching by deadline

The odds seem stacked against the Atlanta Braves' wishes of acquiring a top-notch starting pitcher by Tuesday 4 p.m. ET trade deadline. Chicago Cubs right-hander Ryan Dempster prefers to be dealt to the Los Angeles Dodgers, Zack Greinke went to the Los Angeles Angels and the Miami Marlins only seem willing to trade Josh Johnson within the National League East for a steep asking...

Series Preview: Chicago Cubs (40-57) vs. St. Louis Cardinals (53-46)

The Cubs and Cardinals resume their rivalry while many St. Louis fans are still holding their brooms from last weekend, and not just the witches, maids, and crack addicts. The Cardinals convincingly and effortlessly swept the mini-Bears in a series in which they outscored the Cubs infinity to negative eight. If you want a meaningful, in depth assessment of both teams, I recommend...

Potential deadline trades

Nearly every player on the Cubs is a potential trade candidate so talking about each one would be exhaustive and pointless. Luis Valbuena is a trade candidate though why any team would trade for him, I don't know. It's not like there was a line of teams wanting to sign him after he was DFA'd and he's not been very good so it's safe say that he's a candidate...
