Dempster Gives Up 13 Mil To Sit Out
Ryan Dempster won't be pitching in 2014. He's saying something about family and health. While this is pretty odd, and might mean we use his money to sign Drew (why didn't he tell us before Bronson signed elsewhere?!), I have to say that it's refreshing any time an athlete decides to not accept money that was theirs to have. People say "it's always about money," but there are instances where human beings will deem money less important than something else.
Mom here: Perhaps having pitched last year's Patriots Day game, he's developed a new sensitivity as to what's important to him, like family and his health.
