Cubs signed RHP Ryan Dempster to a three-year, $15.5 million contract extension through 2008. This is a smart move seeing that he can close or start for the team. It gives them the flexibility to chase a starter and a closer in the offseason and convert Dempster to whichever one they do not accquire. Good call guys!!!!
