Ryan Dempster Not Allowed in Canada
Rangers starter Ryan Dempster is taking a few personal days according to the Texas organization as the team travels north of the border to take on the Toronto Blue Jays. The team did not disclose what the reasons were for Dempster's time off, but the truth has come out Friday.
He can't find his passport.
Dempster has not pitched in Canada since 2004, and according to Evan Grant of the Dallas Morning News, Dempster lost the document sometime within the past few years. Things could be worse, and the way Dempster has pitched in the American League, maybe some time off won't be a bad thing.
