Cubs Sign Ryan Dempster


A couple of years ago this might have been a terrific acquisition.

The only thing interesting about this is that the 26-year-old Dempster was apparently signed to a major league contract with an option year for 2005.

Dempster was once one of the hottest prospects in the Marlins organization and had a couple of decent years for them, before getting hurt. Last year he tore a ligament in his elbow.

His age suggests that he might still be able to resurrect his career. If healthy, I'd expect him to spend the year at Iowa getting his game back together.
