Signing Ryan Dempster was a very smart move for the Red Sox.
He is a veteran starter and has had spent some time in the AL, to get his feet wet against the better lineups.
Pending a physical, it looks as if the rotation for the Boston Red Sox will be almost ready to compete for a playoff spot in 2013. According to Fox Sports' Ken Rosenthal, the Red Sox acquired Dempster on a two-year deal.

The deal is pending a physical, and the Red Sox are looking for him to be the third or fourth starter in the rotation, but was it the right move?
