Phil Rogers's post on Chicago Cubs | Latest updates on Sulia
Ryan Dempster has said via his foundation's Twitter account that there is no trade to Atlanta. The guess here is that the reporting is out in front of the technicalities, such as him signing off on it. He controls his situation as he has 10/5 no-trade rights. The Cubs are being quiet on this but it seems like someone around the Braves is putting out word of the deal, and I'm 99-percent sure this thing is going to go down. Dempster could block it, of course, but Theo Epstein has long had an understanding of where Dempster wanted to go, and Atlanta was high on that list, if not at the very top. It could be finalized in the next 30 minutes, the next few hours or maybe tomorrow but this is much more than a rumor.
