Anyone have thoughts on whether to run Dempster out tonight? I usually hate starting @ STL, but I already sonuvabenched him last week and don't want to do it again...

Dempster's pitching numbers are mainly green lights, while STL batting numbers are huge red lights...I am leaning towards starting him anyways but would definitely like to hear from other Dempster owners...
EDIT: According to ESPN the Dodger's made an offer on Dempster. I'd love to have him in the NL West!
It's a definite tough call but I'm runnin him out there because I have a sizeable lead in my peripherals in H2H. Depends on if you can take the damage.
