Justin Masterson 0.351 2.07 0.078 4.89 1.43

  • Still digging Lester.  Go after him.  Offer a crappy closer or something.  His fastball is actually up a tick from last year.
  • I don't know why Beckett's control has been lousy this year.  But he's interesting and still getting Ks.
  • I fully support going after Nolasco.  If I owned him, I'd be getting frustrated.
  • You know Slowey will eventually help your WHIP.  Never walks anyone.
