Cubs "Fire Sale" Begins- Well,Kind of!

Paul Maholm and Reed Johnson traded to Atlanta
Geo Soto (once predicted by Cubs' fans to be a repeat All-Star) goes to the Texas Rangers.

But hours away from the trade deadline, Ryan Dempster is still a Cub. Word is that Dempster is adamant about wanting to go to the Dodgers. Dempster is slated to start tonight against the Pirates. If he does start for the Cubbies tonite, i.e., he's not traded, there should be a good smothering of boos at The Friendly Confines!! Worse news for  all of us is that we may be stuck with Dempster doing his impression of Will Ferrell doing an impression of Harry Caray. Yeah, haven't seen enough of that!!

Idiot caller on the Score right now- Cubs are holding all the cards re Dempster! Dodgers have to give up alot for Dempster if they want him!!
