    Re: Dempster traded to the Braves

    MLB | Confirmed: Dempster being traded to Braves - Rotoworld.com

    Mark Bowman of MLB.com has confirmed that Cubs righty Ryan Dempster is being dealt to the Braves.
    Bowman is "hearing" that Randall Delgado will be sent to Chicago in return, but it sounds like talks are ongoing in regards to that piece of the puzzle. Dempster, 35, has posted a 2.11 ERA and 77/27 K/BB ratio in 98 innings (15 starts) this season for the last-place Cubs. His contract includes a no-trade clause but he was probably more than willing to join a contender like the Braves.

    Good for him. Great pitcher with a chance to go to a contender for a few months. Hopefully this is the beginning of the overhaul for da cubz

    Re: Dempster traded to the Braves

    I've always had a lot of respect for Dempster. As an older guy (35), he deserves another chance at postseason play.

    I hope we really do manage to get some good young pitching. That would be a remarkable trade.

    It wouldn't mind seeing Dempster see some success this year with the braves. Especially if it were to happen against the cards in the postseason.

    Re: Dempster traded to the Braves

    This has been rumored for sometime, but the reason Dempster was willing to waive his no-trade is that he plans on re-signing with the Cubs next season. This seems to be one of the reason why the Cubs were struggling with a lot of teams because most teams didn't want to give up much for a guy who will more then likely only been with them for a few months.

    It sounds like from what I have seen so far, that the Braves think they have a good shot at re-signing him next season. It will be interesting to watch!

    Great deal for the Cubs, especially considering they will more than likely sign Dempster next year.

    Re: Dempster traded to the Braves

    If we do get Dempster back next year, that just makes it a steal. Anything plus the guy you started with = winning.

    Filed to ESPN - if the Dempster trade is completed, Randall Delgado is in it, as well as something to balance the money

    This is what I have seen in multiple places as well. Teams were wondering whether Dempster was a strong enough "rent-a-player" to give up major talent for, or whether his recent form is just temporary (I think it is).

    As a Cubs fan, this is pretty much a steal for us. This season is a loss anyway in terms of getting into playoff contention - now we can get another young guy into the rotation for 2 months to gain experience. And ideally, we don't really lose Dempster long-term so we've got a solid 2nd or 3rd starter coming back next year. Plus - new young talent, almost for free.


    My first ISU basketball game - Fred Hoiberg was on the court.
    My first ISU football game - Paul Rhoads was on the sidelines.
    But they hadn't yet reached their full potential.

    SO PROUD that things have come full circle. #cyclONEnation

    I hope Demp comes back to the Cubs after the season is over. Such a good guy and is a great face for the organization.

    Re: Dempster traded to the Braves

    Also, I've enjoyed the Braves since my platoon at Basic adopted them for their first pennant run in 1991. This is a win-win for me.

    Re: Dempster traded to the Braves

    Once Dempster wins the WS with the Braves he won't want to go back to the Cubs and finish in 4th place in the NL Central

    Agree 100%. Dempster reminds of Kerry Wood. A Cub at heart who will do what is best for the organization short term but prefers to be in a Cubs uniform.
