Justin Masterson has been released.


With a 4-3 win over MIN this afternoon, NYY leads TOR by 1.5 games.
7 PM: TOR at PHI.

I don't understand why Masterson was released. Obviously he is not the guy the Sox let go in 2009, but he appeared to be working well in that middle relief role. Certainly he had to be better than Breslow? Why is that clown still on the pitching staff?

The often-referenced ham sandwich is better than Breslow.

That Cleveland pitcher called Shaw's 384-foot opposite field home run that cleared a 37-foot wall a "pop-up."
