Ryan Dempster has some serious skills blowing bubbles with his gum.
As Jon Lester took hacks in the cage, Dempster was busy blowing a bubble bigger than his head — until it exploded all over his beard, of course. The bubble had Tim Wakefield saying “pitchers are the best athletes.”
Check out Dempster’s impressive bubble in the video above.

The Boston Red Sox open their 10-game road trip Monday night against the lowly Astros at Minute Maid Ballpark. The Red Sox continued their success this weekend by taking two of three from the second place Diamonbacks. The Red Sox dropped a close one 7-6 to open the series on Friday but were able to beat NL Cy Young candidate Patrick Corbin on Saturday in Jake Peavy's debut...
There is some light at the end of the tunnel for Boston Red Sox pitcher Clay Buchholz. He has had a prolonged comeback from a bursa sac strain in his right shoulder, but that comeback may see him throw from the mound for the first time in the near future.
As reported by Ian Browne of MLB.com,
"Snce the All-Star break, Buchholz has been limited to flat-ground work. Once...
A Fenway Park proposal is probably a dream scenario for many young men and women in Boston. A nice afternoon at the ballpark watching the Red Sox, eating a few Fenway Franks ... and then you get down on one knee and bust out that shiny ring.
Or, well, you could propose like this guy. Check out the ultimate caricature of a bad ballpark proposal, courtsey of MLB.com :
With an eye on helping the Red Sox reach the postseason, Jake Peavy is set to begin a new chapter in his stellar career. The 32-year-old right-hander makes his Boston debut Saturday night against the Diamondbacks.
Perhaps the biggest name to be moved prior to Wednesday's trade deadline, Peavy (8-4, 4.28 ERA) was acquired from the White Sox on Tuesday as part of a three-team...
New Red Sox starter Jake Peavy was impressive in his Boston debut Saturday night.
When Peavy wasn’t muttering to himself on the mound, he was mowing down Diamondbacks. Peavy worked fast, threw strikes and displayed the air of an ace in the Sox 5-2 win.
Peavy’s final line was seven innings, 99 pitches, four hits, two earned runs, two walks and...
(Photo by Bob Levey/Getty Images)John Lackey twisted his ankle, came back out to pitch, and struck out 10. But that still wasn't enough to get the Red Sox a win at Minute Maid Park tonight. Boston was shut down on five hits and beaten 2-0 by the immortal Brett Oberholtzer and two relievers. The Red Sox stranded eight baserunners in the loss, and saw their AL East lead shaved...
The trade deadline of 2013 ended up being a dud, but the night before could prove instrumental to the fortunes of this Red Sox team. On the eve of the trade deadline, Boston made a huge move without giving up any of their prized prospects when they acquired White Sox pitcher Jake Peavy in a 3 team trade. Shortstop Jose Iglesias moves on to the Detroit Tigers, with Detroit outfielder...
Diamondbacks leadoff man AJ Pollack walked back to the visitor's dugout flummoxed. Felix Doubront had pin-pointed a changeup at the bottom of the strike zone that Pollack didn't like but it didn't matter. He was the first of what would be many Arizona hitters frustrated on a day dominated by Doubront.
The Red Sox lefty pitched seven scoreless innings to help beat the...
Yogi Berra famously said, “It’s like déjà vu, all over again.” This 2013 Boston Red Sox team seems to have a lot of 2004 in them. Rather than a group of so-called “idiots”, it’s a bunch of Bunyanesque ballplayers providing the walk-off magic. Time to fear the beard.
Player wise only one Red Sock remains from that 2004 curse killing World...
In his Red Sox debut Jake Peavy had the unenviable duty of being matched up against Diamondbacks left-hander Patrick Corbin. But Peavy was up to the challenge earning the win as the Sox beat the Diamondbacks 5-2 at Fenway Park Saturday night.
The two nearly matched each other pitch for pitch. Through five innings Corbin a National League Cy Young candidate had given up one run...
BOSTON — Two Arizona reporters had to climb out through the top of a stuck elevator at Fenway Park on Saturday night after the Diamondbacks’ game against the Boston Red Sox.
Steve Gilbert of MLB.com and Todd Walsh of Fox Sports Arizona were returning to the press box after the Diamondbacks’ 5-2 loss. They boarded the elevator at the ground floor but got stuck before reaching...
8 a.m. ET: Jake Peavy sounded pretty excited to pitch in Fenway Park when he was introduced by the Red Sox on Thursday. He gets his first chance Saturday night.
Peavy (8-4, 4.28 ERA) takes the ball as the Red Sox look to continue a strong homestand against the Arizona Diamondbacks. Interestingly, the D-backs were the other team in contention for Peavy at the trade deadline, and Arizona...
Earlier in the day on Friday Cody Ross had some harsh words for his former club's negotiating tactics. Later that night, his four hits, including the game-winning home run, gave the Arizona Diamondbacks a 7-6 win over the Boston Red Sox at historic Fenway Park.

BOSTON — After three big steps forward, Jon Lester took one giant leap backward Friday.
Lester, who had found a rhythm in his previous three starts, struggled mightily against the Diamondbacks in Friday’s series opener. He allowed six runs on 11 hits and failed to get through the fifth inning as Arizona won, 7-6.
Simply put, Lester was knocked around.
“I’ll take my beatings...
Don't worry Red Sox fans, while the Sox walk-off city crumbled in the ninth inning of Friday night's 7-6 loss to the Diamondbacks, Jon Lester was killin' it at "Temple Run."
