Ryan Dempster appreciates Kevin Millar's hospitality

Ryan Dempster's latest appearance on MLB Network's Intentional Talk went more according to plan than the last, but it still wasn't without its bizarre elements.

The Texas right-hander joined co-hosts Chris Rose and Kevin Millar live from Millar's house, where, he said, he and his family were staying. Although Rose expressed surprise that Millar could not provide Dempster with finer lodgings than the "play room," both host and guest insisted it was the choice of Dempster and his son.

Later on in the interview, Dempster discussed how Yu Darvish is teaching him the languages of Japan and Iran, whether he or Derek Holland owns a better Harry Caray impression and how he had a difficult time clearing customs to get into Canada -- even though he's Canadian.
