Make it eight.

I was reminded of what a jackass this guy has been with this article in the paper the other day....

Don't stub your toe again (http://articles.chicagotribune.com/2012-07-31/sports/ct-spt-0801-timeline-dempster-cubs-chicago--2-20120801_1_sox-coach-joey-cora-ryan-dempster-dempster-signs)

Edit - streaking outside of Stanley's? Ugh.

He's gonna get his ass kicked in the American League. He has always been overrated by Cubs fans and the media who cover the Cubs.

Can't say I'm terribly surprised by him struggling in his first start; and if that continues, I won't be surprised if does not do well in the American League.

On a completely unrelated note, hopefully Humber does better tomorrow against the Angels than Dempster did tonight; it will also be my 2nd (and likely final) Sox game this season.

Tonight's game is a good one between two division rivals thus far, though.

This is precisely why early talk of Dempster being willing to accept a trade to the White Sox (so he could stay in Chicago, I guess) scared the living **** out of me.

Our pitching is much better than we thought if we held this Rangers team in check as we did.

Both these Rangers and Angels have some major thump in their lineups.

Big test for us this weekend and we have no Peavy, Sale, or Quintana going.

I'm shocked, SHOCKED, and appalled this misfortunate event occurred.

The guy's made a major life change in the last 2 days. I'll give him the benefit of one bad start.

If this becomes a trend though, I'd be happy to see him in the ALDS.

Ridiculously so; and by people around here too.
And he's been earning huge money while being so mediocre - in the $13 mill/per range for the last few years.
