That ballpark chat? Yup. It had to do with trade possibilities. Also more on Dempster, Alfonso Soriano, Bryan LaHair, and more.

The Cubs Have Signed 4th Rounder Josh Conway, 5th Rounder Anthony Prieto, and Three Other Top Ten Picks
The Cubs have saved some money against their Draft pool, which will give them flexibility.
Castro’s got a new hitting coach, but his swing early approach might persist. Ian Stewart is seeing a specialist, and Theo Epstein is still offering thoughts.
Some cool sources of info for the Cubs’ short-season Low-A affiliate. Also: Javier Baez homered again. No big thing.
Hope you enjoyed your stay at Wrigley, Tigers fans.
Hello, Justin Verlander.
Run free, Koyie.
The Cubs’ top man remains steadfastly in Castro’s corner.
At least one scout thinks Rizzo’s gaudy AAA numbers are merely the product of him feasting on bad pitching.
Dempster and Theo Epstein have chatted. About what? Well, we might not know for sure for a while.
Ian Stewart’s disabled list stint probably won’t affect Josh Vitters’ progress at AAA Iowa.
God’s Wrath Watch: Ian Stewart Headed to the DL with Continued Wrist Soreness (UPDATE: Valbuena Coming Up)
Stewart could no longer keep fighting through the pain. Luis Valbuena is likely to take his place on the roster.
Um … the Cubs can still win the series?
Continuing to beat the Tigers will either make them believe they need to trade for all Cubs players, or knock them hopelessly out of their race.
The rumors are really starting to pile up. Ryan Dempster remains a major focus for teams looking to improve soon.
Epstein says phone calls between teams are picking up, and now is the time for the Cubs to improve for the future. He also discussed many other things of note.
The players are sad to see Rudy go, but none struck me as particularly surprised by the move.
The Cubs’ top prospect left his game yesterday with a scare, but it sounds like he’s going to be OK.
