Ryan Dempster won’t be back until after the All-Star break

At the outset, please note that as of this week, anything that will or will not happen until “after the All-Star” break is no longer really scary. Because the All-Star break is less than two weeks from now. Seems crazy early and stuff, but it’s where we are.  The upshot: “until after the All-Star break” is now merely descriptive and informative, not scary.

Anyway: Ryan Dempster won’t be back until after the All-Star break. He was originally eligible to come back this past Sunday and, as recently as a couple of days ago, the Cubs thought he’d miss only one start.  But I guess his strained right lat muscle is still not 100%.

No sense rushing him. He needs to be healthy for the end of July — and the trade deadline — not the beginning.

    Over/under 112.5 losses for Rockies and Cubs.

    Please, fleece the Yankees well when they ‘come a callin.’
