    Don't pay any attention to him Ice....I would start another thread as he suggested. This deal is totally idiotic. Now we have as #4 SP: Lester, Doubront, DUMPSTER and as our #5 we are saddled with LACKEY. Bucky is a #2-3 SP, but he is injured too often. Ben is a moron if the deal is for more than one year.

    internet tough guy? i wasn't aware that i threatened you over the internet the way a tough guy would.

    i don't support the move but i'm not bashing the move. the sox had a plan for the pitching since there are no aces available, get a dependable guy who will give you 30 starts and 200 innings. dempster will do that for us. the quality of those innings remains to be seen but I cant judge until i see him in action in 2013.

    @PG: seems you vastly underestimate our pitching staff. but it fits your MO so theres no bother in debating it with you.

    This signing doesnt really bother me. Its a very easily tradeable contract If hes a dud in his first year.

    Ditto.

     

    There are actually "6" other Dempster/Dumpster threads on the front page...  but Lord knows we needed a 7th,  and am sure there will be 10 or more by tomorrow. 

     

    It's 5pm people...  this news broke around 2pm.  Do you really think you're putting out news that has'nt been enlightened upon yet?

    Upside - pitches like Kuroda did last year for NYY (bargain)

    Downside - could be another coming of 2011 Lackey (wasted money)

    Most likely - around 10 and 10, low 5 ERA, 160 IP (team probably could have done better with the $13M/yr)

    Re: They signed Dempster

    I don't know....I really don't see a big deal with the issue.There is nothing great out there.  It's a short deal and not a ton of money.  He is usually good for 200 innings and is a solid #3 pitcher.  A rotation of Lester, Buc, Dempster, Lackey and Dubront with Morales or Aceves doing spot starting could be a lot worse.  In fact..other than Toronto and Detroit...I would take that rotation over any rotation in the East and Central.  We still have all of our draft picks and a solid lineup.  I would obviously love an Ace.....but realistically...MOST TEAMS DO NOT HAVE A REAL ACE!!!  I think if they would go out and get a REAL closer then we may be able to compete.  Defense is a lot better, pitching should be better and if healthy the lineup will produce....

    we have plenty of closers in the BP. if bailey can't do it we have bard (pending he has a revival), tazawa, morales, aceves, melancon and even miller (who can get it up there in the 97-98 range).

    [/QUOTE]

    No.....I don't count him as a REAL closer just yet.  You do realize that every team has to have a rep in the allstar game correct?  Are you telling me that because he was an allstar due to being on a team of no Allstars...that it makes Bailey a top notch closer??  REALLY?? He had 2 solid season...although he did suffer injuries....and the last 2 were again injury plagued.  I hope you're right...but so far the body of work does not support your claim.
