Ryan Dempster isn't a bad pitcher. Sure, he isn't nearly worth his contract extension that Jim Hendry typically gives players past their prime, which comes out to $12.5 million this year, $13.5 million next year, and a $14 million player option that he is sure to pick up (at age 35), but he really isn't all that bad.

Dempster has pitched with mixed success in his two starts this season. Over those two games, he's pitched a 3.55 xFIP (which measures how well the pitcher performs without fielders, good or bad). The stat shows that his fielders are failing him, as his ERA stands at 4.38.
