Chicago Cubs 2016 NL Central Championship Gear

We’re 20 minute away from the Trade Deadline. Deals can still trickle in for a while thereafter, so this is the home for anything else today, on all players.

Here we go.

  • Ryan Dempster has pre-approved a deal to the Dodgers and Yankees (and possibly others), according to Jim Bowden, so the Cubs can take this to the last second.
  • George Ofman says the Cubs are working feverishly to get Dodgers deal done for Dempster. Yankees appear to be back-up.
  • Tim Brown reports that the Dodgers are out on Dempster, according to a source.
  • That would probably leave the Yankees, unless there’s a surprise. Still nothing confirmed on Dempster, or anyone else for that matter.
  • The Rangers are still in on Dempster and Garza, among others as of this second.
  • Multiple reports say Dempster is going to RANGERS, not Yankees. No confirmation anywhere yet. Lots of smoke.
  • Ok, safe now to say: the Rangers have acquired Ryan Dempster.
  • With no reports (yet) on Garza, it’s pretty safe to assume he was not dealt, despite authoritative statements from pundits. The Cubs could still deal him in the offseason.

  • Based on a tweet from Garza, it looks like he hasn’t been traded.
