    They need to give Dempster his money back.

    Yeah, that’s troubling. It makes me like Dempster more though…

    Ryan Dempster is loaning Tom Ricketts money. We are so screwed.

    As I play out all the possible moves the Cubs could and may make if they decide to cash in this season by July, the only veteran I was seeing stay with the team was Dempster. After hearing this, I’m even more convinced that no matter how many NTCs they try to wave and veterans to move, his name won’t come up. And it shouldn’t. This action shows more to the team than anything Lilly, Lee, Sori, Ramirez, or Z have. They all have big contracts, too, and there’s nothing wrong with that. This is America, and it’s their money to spend how they want. But apparently Demp wants to win a little more or lives a more modest lifestyle than the rest of the veterans.

    It makes the $5 million we gave Grabow even more indefensible.

    Can we trade Nady

    Can we trade Nady to the Angels so Colvin can get more abs, maybe we could throw grabass in as well.

      Not without Demp’s permission.
