Law: Dempster a 'small coup' for Sox

By ESPNBoston.com

ESPN Insider baseball analyst Keith Law approves Insider of Boston's signing of Ryan Dempster:

Getting Ryan Dempster, one of a handful of mid-rotation starters who now represent the best pitching options on the free-agent market, for just a two-year deal is a small coup for the Red Sox. Other starters in this group, such as Kyle Lohse and Anibal Sanchez, apparently want deals of four or five years, and Dempster is very close to them in quality and risk, close enough that for his deal to be half that length is a big win for Boston.
