The Cubs bring up three from AAA to fill the holes created at the deadline.
Month: July 2012
The 2012 Trade Deadline Blogathon has come to a successful close. I have little to offer you but thanks.
Not the Dodgers or Yankees.
Here we go. Bullet-style updates, as they roll in.
We know that at least the Rangers, Blue Jays, and Reds have some level of interest. (UPDATES: Diamondbacks have considered him. (2:31pm CT.))
The Ryan Dempster Trade Saga rages on, right up until the final moment. (2:26pm CT.)

The Cubs would like to make it happen, but it’s a tough fit.
The home stretch is here, and I’m losing my mind.
That’s in addition to the Dodgers, obviously. (UPDATES: Dodgers working hard on getting Dempster? (11:15am CT))
The Cubs get a PTBNL or cash, in addition to getting pitching prospect Jake Brigham.
Goldstein talks about Dempster, Garza, and Soriano, as well as the Paul Maholm/Reed Johnson deal and the Geovany Soto deal.
With the late morning approaching, I suspect we’ll be hearing things again soon.
Arodys Vizcaino isn’t the first post-surgery pitching prospect on whom the Cubs have taken a chance.
The ramifications of last night’s deals trickle in, Ryan Dempster speaks, and Darwin Barney wins a hustle award.
The grip of weariness encompassed me with ferocious rapidity. Wow. That’s a hell of a great sentence considering how I’m feeling.
One of the forgotten prospects in the Cubs’ system when we talk trades.
I doubt it involves the Cubs, but it sounds exciting nevertheless.
It’s gettin’ late, yo.

Those are the Dodgers’ three most interesting pitching prospects. (UPDATE: Just the Dodgers? (2:12am CT))
The Matt Garza trade rumor story is shifting rapidly. (UPDATE: 2:06am CT.)
The unofficial mascot of Bleacher Nation.
Are you as angry as you were with Ryan Dempster? If not, why not?
Now THIS is a Trade Deadline Blogathon.
He was pulled early tonight, and started shaking teammates’ hands. (UPDATES: Arodys Vizcaino is the centerpiece, and I’m ecstatic. (10:45pm CT).)
Hugs for everyone tonight …
Soto, like Reed Johnson, was pulled and started shaking hands and hugging folks. (UPDATE: Cubs get meh pitching prospect. (10:47pm CT.)
