Looks like Peavy is staying for a while.

To bad, I would have liked to see Workman get a shot in the rotation.

He left the door open though for a return in 2015. Meanwhile, the Red Sox have placed Dempster on their restricted list meaning they will not be paying him this year.

By not paying Dempster, will that open the door for a Drew return?

They already gave Drew an offer. I doubt this changes anything concerning Drew.

I'm OK with Peavy at the bottom of the rotation.

Plus, they have all those 2 - 4 MLB ready starters in their system to fill in any openings.

So both ARod and Dempster are taking the year off.

Following in the footsteps of the great Tim Thomas: Win a title, and then take a year off for "friends, family and faith." What a maroon.
