On Monday afternoon it appeared the deal was about to go down, but the Cubs said no announcement was planned, and Dempster later tweeted that "there is no trade'' on his twitter account.
Dempster has 10-and-5 veto right but it isn;t clear that that has anything to do with the holdup. Dempster tweeted in mid-afternoon that there was "no trade.''
