I feel like Dempster is due for some serious regression, and I've been shopping him around. I'm looking for some good pitching prospects to deal him for, and just looking for suggestions.

Paxton? Hultzen? Are these guys worth/too much for Dempster? Any other suggestions? Thanks guys and WHIR.

I would take Hultzen first but I would be ok with that. In a dynasty league I don't see you getting a lot for Dempster. Most managers are probably thinking the same thing you are so you either deal him for probably one good prospect or you keep him until he does start to regress. Sometimes guys are worth more by just keeping them then trying to deal them.
