Ironically enough, Peavy being traded to the Cubs could effect us after all.

The question Dempster must ask himself is: Why should I take a hometown discount when the team is apparently willing to spend more money on Peavy?
The Cubs have exclusive negotiating rights with their own free agents through Thursday. They are believed to have offered Dempster $50 million over four years, a number he should be able to beat on the open market. Atlanta and the New York Yankees are prospective bidders, and with starting pitching at a premium, others are certain to join in.


So the question is do you take a chance on a guy like Dempster? Currently, the Cubs are offering 4/50MM, which the Yankees could easily beat. The only problem is that he will be 32 years old for the upcoming season.

A lot of other options would have to fall through before I'd take a look.

You got it Zim.

This is the type of player you run away from and hide if you're Cashman. A 32 year old coming off a career year in the NL.

Nasty.

Count me in, let's just make this a game of Russian Roulette.

I actual like Dempster but not on anything like the contract he's looking for. I think I read that he turned down 4 years $50M from the Cubs today to test FA. Maybe I have the numbers and years wrong though.

Sadly you have the numbers and year correct. He is parlaying a career year IN HIS MOTHER F*CKING WALK YEAR into $50M plus.

Let's see. For 6 years he was a medium-to-bad starter. For the next 4, he was a perfectly decent reliever, pitching 75 or so innings a year. Then, at age 31, he has one terrific season as a starter.

Which of these things is not like the others? Why would you give more than 4/50 for it?

And how many times have the Yankees been burned by doing exactly that?

Say NO to Ryan Dumpster. He's a fluke.

I don't blame him one bit though. Get the money while the gettings good.

more like ryan DUMPster

(because "dump" = "crap," so therefore, i'm making a pun out of his last name and implying that he's an average pitcher who'll be a less than average investment.)

Dempster should be able to get more money, but if he were to stay with the Cubs, a possible rotation of Zambrano, Peavy, Dempster, Harden, and Lilly could be pretty amazing, though very injury prone.

Dear Lord, I would hope that the lessons of the past would compel the Yankees to steer clear of a guy like Ryan Dempster.

Let those who fail to learn from Pavano and Wright be condemned to repeat them.

I think those stats were what some sim came up with for Jaret Wright after we had signed him, so SnatchCatch has had it in his sig since then. I was playing off that for Dempster.
