Ron Santo Day the Backdrop As Trade Talks Continue

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

It is Ron Santo Day at Wrigley Field, with his retired No. 10 etched into the center field grass.
But most minds are on trade talk.
Pitchers Ryan Dempster and Matt Garza remain the focus of speculation as the July 31 deadline approaches. The Cubs' weekend series against the contending St. Louis Cardinals could be a side note as the hours unfold.
Dempster's situation apparently is fluid, with the Los Angeles Dodgers, the team he prefers to go to, are weighing options, including Garza and perhaps Milwaukee pitcher Zack Greinke, the free agent to-be who is also being shopped by the Brewers.
