According to our sources the Red Sox are very close to singing Dempster to a three-year deal.

If the Red Sox were to sign Dempster that would leave their bullpen with Jon Lester, Clay Buchholz, Felix Doubront, Franklin Morales, Dempster and John Lackey in the mic for starts in 2013.

This would be a great pickup for the Red Sox, and one that Boston fans should truly be excited about.
