Dempster talks move to the final day with things still in a staredown
The Cubs and Dodgers have been talking about Ryan Dempster for a month now. Today is the day it has to happen -- if it happens.
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.
