    Look Grinch (maybe that's what the "G" in ADG stands for), probably no one on this board is  much of a  Demster booster, and barring two rotation injuries, no one expects him to be part of a postseason rotation.   But he is still part of the team, and may have a role to play in the postseason, however limited.  In the meantime, like every player on the roster, he must stay fresh going forward, and that means still getting in some work.  Maybe a split outing with Buchholz, whose workload will be carefully watched, is the way to go.

    Leave it to you to accentuate the negative on an otherwise joyous day for the Red Sox.

    Score when ADG posted his whine:  3-4

    Score since tonight's ADG whine:  17-0

    Even for someone who is renowned for always being wrong, being wrong by two touchdowns and a field goal, is the new gold standard.

    If he's a piece of junk then what are the pitchers he was playing against tonight?

    And we won without Iggy, Jackie, and Buch.

    Somehow I doubt that this Grinch will be available to carve the roast beast.

    If he did, he'd find a fly on it.

    yup it sure is. especially since the next stop is new york city. I wonder if brian cashman has any nails left on his fingers wondering about this next 4 games. nothing like seeing a totally jacked up red sox team coming in to give a gm nightmares eh?

    During the series, I want Dempster to come out of the bullpen and pitch to A-Rod.   LOL

    At least Dempster is willing to pitch up to 6 innings.  Had he give up more runs before going to the 5th innngs, Farrell would eventually have took him out early and the Farrell is more likely to use Workman to pitch at least two innings, then use other two to three more pitchers.  That is too much work for the bullpen.  But Dempster save possible two bullpen arms last nite.

    That is all matter to us.  You dont want bullpen to be over work.  In the last two weeks where most starters is now doing deep, the bullpen is looking much better than they were in the month of August!!

    That is the key to keep the fresh for the post season!!

    Re: Hopefully Dempster's Last Start


    How many other teams have a #5 rotation starter who has started 27 games and averages 5.82 innings pitched per game.  Also has a BB/SO ratio of 69/144, ERA of .479, and wins as often as he loses.

    For example, just look at the Tigers rotation.  Scherzer, Verlander, Fister, Sanchez, & Porcello.  Porcello, obviously their #5, has started 26 games and averages a similiar 5.88 innings per game.  His  BB/SO ratio is 39/115, ERA of .476, and has an 11-8 record.

    It would be further interesting to see a comparison of what kind of run support these two have gotten from their respective teams.

    You won't find many #5 starters who surpass Dempster and Porcello as two of the better #5's in the American League.  So I ask you, would you rather have Wakefield?

    I doubt many Tiger fans are castigating Porcello the way some Red Sox fans continually down play and ride Dempster.

    Will either one of these guys get a start in the playoffs?  I think all will agree that it is unlikely, but one cannot argue that #5's are #5's, they are what they are. And personally I think the Sox are fortunate in the wake of Buccholz's problems, to have a worthy veteran like Dempster to fill that spot, at least until one of the young studs matures and prove themselves dependable and reliable.
