Red Sox Officially Introduce Ryan Dempster

The Red Sox officially introduced their newest starting pitcher at Fenway today, as Ryan Dempster donned the uniform number forty-six. Dempster was signed to a two-year, $26.5 million deal, and the Sox hope he will have a better American League experience in Boston than he did in Arlington, Texas. Said Dempster: "I'm well aware the AL East is a very tough division, but at the same time, every team in baseball is a tough team to pitch against. If you go out there and make your pitches and execute, it doesn't matter where you're pitching or who you're pitching against, you're going to have success." Dempster is definitely an "innings-eater", having logged at least 200 innings (with 30 or more starts) seven times in his career.
