    Dumpster back to the Cubbies

    Per MLBTRADERUMORS

    11:51am: Gordon Wittenmyer of the Chicago Sun-Times also says there's a four-year, $52MM agreement and Dempster will sign the deal today. I consider this an acceptable price. There's a health risk, but Dempster already had Tommy John surgery. He can probably maintain an ERA below 4.00.

    I hated Dempster when he was a Red. I only hope he is terrible once more.

    Dempster was hurt when he was with the Reds. The Cubs were smart to sign him, and pay him to rehab for an entire year. After a couple of seasons in the bullpen getting his arm in shape he was great last year in a starting role.

    I don't know if he will be that good again, but I wouldn't expect a huge dropoff. He was pretty consitent month to month.

    Career year, don't expect it again. He'll implode.

    Terrible idea to sign him for four years. I think the Cubs may be trying too hard.

    I know for a fact that Dempster grew up a Cubs fan. Good guy, decent pitcher, but why still call him Dumpster? I would take a few Dumpsters like that in Cincy to go with what we have.
