The Nationals are “trying hard” for Ryan Dempster

The Dodgers are still thought to be in conversations with the Cubs over Ryan Dempster, but Jon Heyman says that the Nationals are “trying hard” for him too.

Heyman says the Braves and the Tigers are in the mix too. Dempster is scheduled to start tonight, setting up the possibility for one of the more dramatic trade-related things there are: the 11th hour scratch-as-harbinger of a trade.

Look, it’s dramatic relatively speaking, ok? I realize all of this trade nonsense is total nerfherder stuff.
