Cubs Signing Ryan Dempster??

-UPDATE- It is official. The Cubs sign Dempster to a 4 year deal worth 52 million. Not a bad deal hopefully we do not see a decline, which I do not expect.

- Gordon Wittenmyer of the Chicago Sun-Times says there is a 4 year 52 million dollar deal that both Ryan and the Cubs have agreed on. Dan Graziano of the Newark Star-Ledger, SI.com's Jon Heyman , and Rosenthal all agree that a deal is done.

- Also according to Ken Rosenthal, he said depending on their ownership situation, the Cubs may still pursue Jake Peavy or Randy Johnson. As well as be in the mix for Furcal. I would love if the Cubs added Peavy or Johnson on top of signing Dempster!

- Jon Heyman says that Mark Cuban's bid for the Cubs is not high enough.

- MLB.com's Corey Brock says that there is not much going on with the Yankess, and in fact Towers says he has had "no direct conversations with Cashman about Peavy over a period of time." Towers is currently focused on the Cubs but thinks a third of even fourth would need to get involved to get a deal done.
