From the Field: Ryan Dempster, p, Chicago Cubs

Ryan Dempster, IC signed in blue sharpie

Ryan Dempster was a fun pitcher. He was, at different points in his career, a successful starting pitcher (he won at least 15 games three times) and closer (he saved at least 24 games three times). He was a two time All-Star. He had some rough seasons tucked in there, and would have pretty average career stats (132-133 record, 98 ERA+), but when he was on, he was on.
