Friday Funnies: What Theo Epstein and Ryan Dempster's secret trade chat might be.

The other day in comments here, Jacos put up this link and asked for some captions.
Looks like the Uecker Seats doesn't it?
Thanks for the laugh and inspiration, Jacos ( and whoever took that photo).
If you're old enough, you'll know the "He missed the tag!" line comes from a really funny Miller Lite spot starring Bob Uecker which unfortunately I couldn't find in it's entirety on you tube.
Anyway, this trade talk.
Pretty sure this has occured to everyone, but I'm kinda slow: what if today is Dempster's last start as a Cub, or in Wrigley?
Do I want to see him go?
For his own good, the Cubs good, and for your's and mine.
But still, pretty sad.
Really rare combo of talent and good guy, Dempster.
And if I can figure out how to get to Wrigley today, I'll be there.
So, yes, I have been quoting your, "mediocre pitcher" label all year in jest - good or bad.
He has been pretty filthy against the Cards, and this is the game they need to "steal".
I am hoping against hope that Pedro Strop only sees the mound if the Cubs are up 8 in a game.
Gordo's lede today:
*checks pulse again*
Who are you? Andy Rooney?
Colbert has our backs
...and what happened with him and the giants a few days ago?
Its not official until AZ Phil adds him to the Cubs Depth Chart!
Just freakin love it!
From Keith Law:
This from a Kiley McDaniel chat a couple weeks ago...
"Comment From Wrenzie
Who has more ceiling between Yusniel Diaz or Eddy Julio Martinez?
Arizona Phil 7 hours 23 min ago"
neat. 41 years old and damn close to 3000 hits.
also, rain delays suck.
