Ryan Dempster Trade Rumors: Cubs Pushing To Trade Pitcher 'By The End Of The Week'

Jayson Stark of ESPN is reporting the Chicago Cubs are trying to trade their ace SP Ryan Dempster -- and trade him immediately:

The 35-year-old Dempster is in the middle of a career year with the Chicago Cubs. Through 14 starts, Dempster has thrown 92 innings of 1.86 ERA and 3.13 FIP ball. Chicago signed Dempster as a free agent in 2004 after earning a release from the Cincinnati Reds. The Cubs put him in a relief role for four seasons, and then made him a starter again in 2008 to great effect.
