Cubs Trade Rumors: Dempster Okays Texas; Soriano May Be Staying In Chicago

The latest news on Chicago Cubs SP Ryan Dempster is that the veteran pitcher has added the Texas Rangers to his list of accepted teams, which already includes the Los Angeles Dodgers and New York Yankees:

Meanwhile, the rumors concerning LF Alfonso Soriano are anything but consistent:

Soriano, 36, is having a late-career resurgence with the Cubs, hitting 19 homers with a .274/.324/.504 slash. But, despite his decent production, he is still owed $36 million in the next two seasons -- far more money than his production would justify, meaning the Cubs will likely kick in money to make the deal more palatable.
