Wren offers his take, based on what he’s heard from the Cubs. Also, as has become the norm … MOAR UPDATEZ. And more, as of 9pm CT.
You deserve a break from the craziness of the last few days.
Ryan Dempster takes the loss, but pitches well in the process.
The parameters of the deal the two teams had in place as of Monday have now expired. Dodgers looking more and more like only option other than keeping Demp.
The Cubs aren’t actually going to let Ryan Dempster start again, are they?
The righty will probably miss the rest of the year. Short Bullets for you this morning, as we track the Dempster saga elsewhere.
All the talk about what makes a prospect a “number one” or a “number two” type starter might have you asking some questions.
Some huge overnight moves will impact the Cubs’ dealings.
Well, the Cubs have certainly helped the Cardinals over the last five games.
Report: Ryan Dempster Holding Out for Trade to Los Angeles Dodgers (UPDATE: Dempster Weighing Options)
Boy, I really hope this isn’t true. I’ll start rolling in the updates…
He’s headed home to be with his wife for the arrival of their fourth child.
The Cubs’ll go for two in a row, and Paul Maholm will try to show the Pirates what they let go.
The rumor mill exists outside of the Dempster universe, and it’s only going to pick up steam.
How did what happened happen? And where are we right now?
The righty was dominant last night, but was pulled before he had a shot at a shutout. If he’d had a no-hitter, he wouldn’t have been pulled, though.

The Pirates have been tracking Maholm’s performance and scouting him for a while now.
Who cares how the Cubs game ended yesterday? Ron Santo is finally in the Hall of Fame.
Sometimes when a minor leaguer succeeds, it’s about more than just his on-field efforts.
It can help them – and us – forget about this ugly series in St. Louis.
That’s a sweep. Just the worst freaking weekend possible.
