Ryan Dempster couldn’t make it out of the sixth inning last night against the Yankees.
Last night we saw Ryan Dempster only last 5 1/3 innings. That wasn’t the biggest story after him plunking Alex Rodriguez in the second inning but still it should be a story. The Red Sox bullpen is missing three arms they thought would be of great help this season with Joel Hanrahan, Andrew Bailey, and Andrew Miller out for the rest of the season. With Koji Uehara and Junichi Tazawa stepping up to key roles Bailey and Hanrahan have been forgotten but let us not forget about Andrew Miller. Miller, a lefty was coming into his own this season and was a force getting not only lefties out but righties as well. Now the Red Sox are forced to used Drake Britton and Franklin Morales in tight situations early in the game when starters fail, because Craig Breslow is more of a late inning reliever. Fellow lefty Matt Thornton is on the disabled list as well with a leg injury and it is unsure when he will b...

Irony is never a stranger to Major League Baseball. Boston Red Sox starter Ryan Dempster was suspended five games for plunking controversial New York Yankees slugger, Alex Rodriguez, with a pitch. Major league pitchers start every five or six games, depending on team off days, so in reality Dempster won’t miss any starts. Dempster was not ejected after hitting Rodriguez in the...

I don’t care if this dude is a Red Sox fans. He deserves all the stupid comments thrown his way.
Anyways, last night Boston Red Sox pitcher Ryan Dempster tried to plunk Alex Rodriguez because… um… he was involved in Biogenesis? I don’t know. It really doesn’t make sense to me either. He didn’t show up a home-run – also stupid – or badmouth somebody on the Red Sox...
Ryan Dempster made it obvious that he was intentionally trying to hit Alex Rodriguez during Sunday’s Boston Red Sox-New York Yankees game, but did you realize that Dempster likely had this planned for a while? Ottawan Citizen sports writer Wayne Scanlan tweeted that Dempster told him he planned to “drill” A-Rod the first chance he […]
Alex Rodriguez has worn the villain’s hat long enough to know he is disliked throughout baseball. What he doesn’t want is people throwing at him because of their opinions of him filing an appeal of a suspension.
