Mid Week Notes: Dempster on Waddle & Silvy, Top 10 Cubs of the Decade, Marlon Byrd, and More

Top 10 Cubs from the Decade from ESPN Chicago

  • 10. Mark DeRosa
  • 9. Mark Prior
  • 8. Ryan Theriot
  • 7. Moises Alou
  • 6. Sammy Sosa
  • 5. Ryan Dempster
  • 4. Kerry Wood
  • 3. Derrek Lee

Ryan Dempster joined Waddle & Silvy on ESPN 1000 yesterday:

  • Dempster is excited with his event coming up to raise money for the illness that his daughter has.
  • Ryan's daughter is doing well. The baby was born on April 1 last year and that made his season hard for him.
  • Tom, Mark, and Ryan agree that the "Wii Fit" isn't real exercise. They think people should get outdoors.
  • In 2009, the Cubs don't play the level of baseball that they were capable of.
  • When asked about Milton Bradley, Dempster said it's hard to judge someone else's experiences. Ryan said that Bradley is a "really, really good guy who handled certain things poorly."
  • Demp thinks it would be a little uncomfortable if Milton returns next season. However, he is a very forgiving guy, and if Bradley is back on this team, Ryan wants him to enjoy the rest of his experience with the Cubs.
  • Move info about Dempster's upcoming event:
  • He is focused on getting ready for the season, and Jim Hendry will handle making the team's offseason moves. The Cubs need the guys who were with the Cubs last year to play better.
  • Ryan thinks that the Ricketts family are great people, and the truly want what's best for the Chicago Cubs. They plan to put money back into this team.
  • Dempster can't wait until the opening of the new skating rink that he will be at on Saturday.
  • It's fun to watch the current Blackhawks team. Dempster thinks that the Hawks have a solid young team.

That's it for now, I'll keep you posted!
