Won't the Cubs get some solid supp. picks if they do let him walk? It just doesn't make sense to keep him around, same with Garza if you ask me. Hell, I'd trade Shark if you could get some decent prospects for him, but I personlly hate the guy as a baseball player.
Dempster giving the team a discount is just conjecture on my part. I can't be sure but I thought he had expressed desire to stay a Cub the rest of the way but who knows.
It will be interesting to see if Shark can sustain his level of play this season. If so he'll be awfully tough to let go.
