This tells me the Sox were not interested in beefing up the rotation short term for a playoff run. Granted, he pitches in the NL but the best ERA has to worth something, even if it would be a rental.
Other teams are making moves while Ben sits on his face, since that's where his head is.

Of course, Dempster could have vetoed a trade to Boston, and, if BC did try to get him and was turned down because of it, I apologize.
