Dempster talks move to the final day with things still in a staredown

The Dodgers and Cubs were at a standstill as of late last night on the long-running Ryan Dempster talks, with the discussions threatening to go to the wire.

The Dodgers probably see themselves as having the upper hand in negotiations since Dempster has made clear he only would approve a trade to Los Angeles, so with that in mind they've offered two pitching prospects the Cubs don't covet. The Cubs have sought right-handed pitching prospect Allen Webster for Dempster.

If there's been movement in the last few days, it is very incremental.

There also had been an attempt to pair Alfonso Soriano with Dempster but with the Dodgers likely to acquire Shane Victorino, they'd be out of the Soriano mix.
