Just like the Joba situation... without the stupidity
The Red Sox need a reliever... they have a solid rotation... Buchholz and maybe Colon are coming back, so they decided Justin Masterson should go to the pen, so they are sending him to Pawtucket to get used to relieving.
That was simple.
And makes good baseball sense.
Unlike the drama in the Bronx where everyone hemmed and hawed and turned the regular season into Joba's personal spring training.
Call me crazy, even after losing the series to Houston and Tampa and getting only a split in New York... I am not panicking yet.
And I think this Masterson move will be solid. It will be like getting another reliever without trading away Kason Gabbard and David Murphy.
