I don't know how long it's been there... probably for much of the season. But, I just noticed it today for the first time. Oh, the times they are a changin'.

Ryan Dempster said on ESPN 1000's The Waddle & Silvy Show that he never turned down a trade to Atlanta (link via ESPNChicago.com). "All I asked for was more time on one particular trade," the right-hander said.

Why the Cubs shouldn't be major players in Free Agency for 2013

We all the know the Cubs are rebuilding for the future... for a future of long sustained success. At least... that's the plan, and they've hired a very smart executive team led by Theo Epstein to...

Orioles inquire on LaHair. Hanley Ramirez on trade block.

49

Will be interesting to see what the trade value is for LaHair... who should have more value to an AL team as a very inexpensive DH/1B, than he does to this team as a bench bat and poor defensive OFer. Also will be curious to see if TheoJed show any interest in Hanley, since they developed him in Boston... and there's a certain hole at 3B right now for the Cubs.

Vitters bides time for Cubs | MILB.com

He's finally becoming a student of the game, instead of just relying on his talent. And he's fully aware of the opportunity that exists in Chicago.

Royals & Pirates interested in Maholm

55

As reported by Bruce Levine of ESPN Chicago. Cubs have a $6.5 mil option on Maholm for 2013.

As many as 10 teams pursuing Dempster in trade

90

Bruce Levine - "With a little more than two weeks until baseball's trade deadline, 10 teams have shown legitimate interest in acquiring Dempster's services for the remainder of the season, according to industry sources. Those clubs include the Los Angeles Dodgers, Cleveland Indians, Detroit Tigers, New York Yankees, Chicago White Sox and Atlanta Braves. The Cubs have started, in earnest, to look at minor league players at the lower levels of almost every farm system. The organization is looking for young pitching in return for its veteran players, but according to a baseball source who has inquired about trading with the Cubs, a well regarded third-base prospect is also very high on their wish list."

Will Dempster be a Dodger soon? List of potential prospects

99

Chicago Now highlights the best pitching prospects in the Dodgers system. For the Cubs to deal Demp, they'll have to find a package they like better than the possible comp picks they could receive in the offseason (making the qualifying offer to Demp of course).

Jorge Soler's agent is Barry Praver (Zambrano & Marmol)

3

Praver's three biggest contracts are Zambrano, Wandy Rodriguez and Carlos Marmol. So, he's done a great job at fleecing the Cubs already.

Didn't see this posted anywhere, and I know how much everyone is interested in Soler.

Big Z tosses CG Shutout

33

His ERA is now 1.98... and he looks real slimmed down. Best shape I've seen him in a long time. Too bad he was such a D bag for a teammate, because he's finally pitching like we expected him to.

Another closer bites the dust, but the Cubs still don't have a chance to move Marmol when he keeps stinking up the joint. Maybe Hendry will convince Cashman he can fix Marmolade.

"The Cubs offered Byrd to the Nationals for pitching and the Braves are also discussing the 34-year-old. "

Pirates allowing people to bring dogs to the ballpark?

That's disgusting. Barking, pee, poop, all over the ballpark during a game. Yay.

Nice ESPN Story on LaHair

You wanna root for him just to see someone realize their goals and dreams after a long road to the majors.

Revisiting the 2005 Draft. Cubs rank dead last

Baseball America's Jim Callis takes a look back at the 2005 draft. The Cubs have only sent one player to the major leagues from that draft: Donald Veal. And he sucks. The following December, the Cubs finally hired Tim Wilken to help fix their draft ineptitude.

Will you still purchase your usual tix if Quade and/or Hendry return in 2012?

After being extremely disappointed with the past two seasons, and not receiving a good value out of my Cubs tickets, I have already decided that if Mike Quade returns as Cubs manager for 2012, I...

Pirates inquire on Pena, but sense Cubs not interested

40

Really? Are you serious Hendry? Pena is a FA at the end of the year... so there's a very good chance he's not part of the team's future anyway... an we're 22 FRIGGIN GAMES UNDER .500. Make the damn deal and move on.
