I have some hope for Lackey... although I kind of wish we could see Morales or RDLR instead. I think a mid 4 from Lackey would be okay. All he has to do is not suck lol
lol, small kid got tripped by a tuba player
As long as its a 2 year deal, I'm okay with it.
Dempster had a sub 4 xFIP last season with Texas, plus I'd be willing to argue that the Red Sox will have better defense up the middle with Pedroia and Jose (as compared to Andrus and Kinsler)
As a Sox fan, this deal makes me sick.
I like Dempster as a person. He seems cool. But this is just a dumb deal.
Dempster is 35. Anibal Sanchez is only 29. past numbers are past, Sanchez is going to be better going forward.
Dempster recently turned down an offer from Boston of $25 million over 2 years. he was said to be looking for 3 year deal around $13 million.
Dempster isn't going to be paid for what he WILL do for the Red Sox, he is going to be paid for what he has done for the Cubs. that's something I don't like about contracts, but I doubt it changes anymore soon.
I don't like this move for this team. Dempster I doubt will be someone to push the Red Sox into contention.
I like the other things like clubhouse and a veteran to help younger pitchers, but not at the price you pay for someone like Dempster. I think there were likely other pitchers they could have signed who would give them similar numbers for a lot less money.
the Red Sox would be better off rebuilding.

Dempster and #RedSox are in agreement, pending physical.
