The Red Sox, Grounders, and You

Masterson will be a part of Boston’s wormburner brigade.

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...

Justin Masterson – Second Time Around

The return of Justin Masterson to the Red Sox via free agency caused little excitement among writers and fans. Once considered a top prospect, he was traded to Cleveland in 09 in a deal involving Victor Rodgriguez. The deal basically failed on both ends- Rodriguez left at the end of that year and Masterson was up-and-down for the Indians. Part of the problem with the hurler   ...

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.

Why I like the Justin Masterson trade

The Indians made their first deadline move and it was a big one.  They sent right-handed starting pitcher Justin Masterson to the Cardinals for minor league outfielder James Ramsey in a one for one deal. The Cardinals had been chasing big name pitchers, but in the end decided it was better to not pay the premium and rolled the dice on Masterson. Initial reaction was very mixed...

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.
