Red Sox Sign Justin Masterson

The Boston Red Sox reached an agreement Thursday with free-agent pitcher Justin Masterson, sources told ESPN's Buster Olney.

The 28-year-old right-hander had a difficult 2014 campaign, struggling with a knee injury that landed him on the disabled list with the Cleveland Indians and later in the season was relegated to the bullpen by the St. Louis Cardinals, who acquired him in a trade-deadline move.
And somewhere Joe Castiglione is smiling and thinking to himself, "Cookies!"

Castig loves those cookies, but he loves Masterson even more. Apparently he's the nicest guy in baseball.

It's good to have him back!

The only problem I have with Masterson is that, due to a misspent youth, every time I hear his name, the theme song from the old tv western 'Bat Masterson' pops into my head and loops continuously long past the bottom of the ninth....
