I had a few different thoughts. Dempster didn't make the cut as a starter for Boston a down the stretch last season so he was probably going to end up in the bullpen as a long reliever/spot starter this year. His contract is for $13mil but Boston is very big on having backups in place. Dempster knew no one would take him in a trade at $13 mil. So he opts out of the contract with the hope someone takes a flyer on him w a new contract.
Seems odd he says he won't pitch in 2014. If he is hurt, at his age what is the odds he sits out and can come back after a year off. He won a ring so the thought of coming back as a sub in Boston might be less appealing than pitching somewhere else. maybe it is an injury concern but I would not be surprised if we see him surface somewhere for a prospect and a new deal.

I can't believe someone would walk away from 13 million dollars.
