Pesky Sox Bail Out Masterson; Beat Nats, 8-7

Masterson Delivers To Harper (Exclusive FenwayNation Photo)Count this one as a 'gimmee'. The Red Sox had no business pulling out a win tonight, but—thanks to a hapless Nationals "defense"—they eeked out a crazy 8-7 win at Fenway. In the seventh-inning comeback, Washington made three errors and their pitchers hit two batters—allowing Boston to score three runs without the benefit...

Masterson Gets the Win As Sox Take First Series of the Season

Justin Masterson was making his 2015 debut after rejoining the Red Sox this off season.  Masterson was always a favorite and fans were sad to see him go when he was traded in 2009 for catcher Victor Martinez.  Masterson was dominant early and got plenty of run support to cruise to his first victory in 2015. The game stayed scoreless until the 3rd inning when the Sox would give...

Justin Masterson Photobombs His Own Interview

When we signed Justin Masterson in the offseason, we knew we’d be getting a reliable number three or four starter who’s good for about 200 innings a year. What I didn’t realize is we’d be getting some pretty solid comedy. Earlier in spring training we had this impromptu weather report. Tonight, after the man threw one-hit ball across 5 and 2/3 innings, he punctuated an interview...

Red Sox Notes: Justin Masterson Delivers Three Perfect Innings In Second Start

The second time’s the charm. After a lackluster but promising spring training debut from Justin Masterson — he allowed one unearned run on one hit and two walks over two innings in a 5-3 loss to the Miami Marlins — the Boston Red Sox starter turned in a performance to call home about. The right-hander pitched three perfect innings in a 5-1 win over...

Justin Masterson: Red Sox Capable Of ‘Great Things’ In 2015 (Video)

Justin Masterson knows what he’s getting into. Masterson is well-aware of the pressure of playing in Boston. He was drafted by the Red Sox in 2006 and spent two seasons with the big league club before being shipped to the Cleveland Indians at the 2009 Major League Baseball non-waiver trade deadline. The right-hander isn’t fazed by the heightened expectations, though. Instead...

Analyzing Justin Masterson’s Cardinal Debut

The Cardinals’ first starting pitching acquisition of the year made his debut on Saturday against the Milwaukee Brewers. That game was a big start for three reasons. First, it was Justin Masterson‘s first chance to impress in a Cardinal uniform. Second, it was a chance for Masterson to shut down a division rival and potential playoff opponent.

Indians “very willing” to trade Justin Masterson

The Cleveland Indians’ season isn’t going according to plan I wouldn’t say. At the same time when they failed to reach a deal with Masterson and pay him as much money as he wanted to be paid, maybe they knew what they were doing. Masterson has struggled mightily this season – his last under contract with the Indians. Masterson was thought to be seeking $17 million per season...
