He might indeed, but I am a bit more optimistic, Dempster is very deceptive, with that little glove wave, and he has really good command and control. He's got a K/BB rate north of 3:1, which is damn good. Even if that regresses to 2:1, it is good. And the Rangers have a deep, stocked system, and kept all their blue chip prospects. Dempster only cost them a couple of B-list prospects.
