Nine to Know: Call Me “Meh”

by Bill Chuck on December 20, 2012

Ryan Dempster was introduced to Red Sox Nation yesterday as a model of consistency who has thrown over 200 innings seven times. The 35-year-old Dempster, who got a two-year, $26.5 million deal from Boston, has also been consistent in his won-lost record going 124-124.

This inspired today’s NtK, the .500 pitchers with the most career decisions

FYI: Dempster finished the 2010 season also at .500 with a 102-102 record; a career .500 record is the highest he has ever finished a season.
