Ryan Dempster, Milton Bradley and Joe Crede were other notables that filed. Dempster is one player that hopes to remain with his current team. "Absolutely. I love it here," Dempster said two days after the Cubs were swept from the NLDS. "I love the city. I love playing here. Hopefully, everything works out."
