Then to only say, nah, I changed my mind, when his stamp is needed to finalize a deal. A deal that would have been incredible for the Cubs no less.
Yeah, it definitely hurts that we were going to get Delgado. I mean, if that guy reaches max potential, he'll be a part of Cubs lore forever.

Had to make myself feel a little better, but check out how much money the Phils are locked into at the moment... and not exactly with young guys. All over 30, except for Hamels, who will be 35 by the time that deal is up. Will he hold up?

Hamels - 6 more years, $24M per year (going off average, exact breakdown not announced)
Halladay - $20M next 3 years, possibly option goes into place based off of IP and no DL stints for another year at $20M
Lee - 21.5M next year, then 25M, 25M, 25M, and 27.5M or 12.5M buyout
Papelbon - 13M, 13M, 13M, 13M option if he finishes, no saves, 55 games the prior year
Howard - 20M, 25M, 25M, 25M, 23M or 10M buyout

As of now, Cubs plan is to keep Dempster and make qualifying offer to get a draft pick — unless offers improve. Not close to LAD deal yet.

Only move left at this point. Maybe hope someone gets desperate and overpays last minute in a panic.
