Friars Flapjacks: Paging Justin Masterson

The Padres are moving in a youthful direction with the focus going towards building for the future. But, that doesn’t mean that if a free agent could come to San Diego on the cheap and benefit the team both this coming season and, in one way or another, the long term future. This free agent […] Friars Flapjacks: Paging Justin Masterson - Friars on Base - Friars on Base - A San Diego Padres Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

A tale of two starts: Justin Masterson and mechanical adjustments while with the Cardinals

On August 8, 2014, Justin Masterson had very little control (3 walks, 2 HBPs) and couldn't keep the ball in the ballpark (2 HRs allowed). On August 13, 2014, he was in full control and did not allow a single run. So, what changed, you ask? Justin Masterson looked like a pitcher worth trading for in his most recent start (7.0 innings, 3 hits, 0 earned runs, 0 walks, 3 strikeouts; August 13, 2014) with the Cardinals. However, two starts ago, he got lit up—2.0 innings, 7 hits, 5 earned runs, three walks, two strikeouts, two home runs, and two hit batsmen—by the Baltimore Orioles (August...

Cardinals at Marlins Recap: Justin Masterson shuts down Marlins in 5-2 win

Cardinals at Marlins Recap: Justin Masterson shuts down Marlins in 5-2 win

Well, there's certainly nothing like a relatively comfortable victory to ease the minds a little bit.  Justin Masterson, who has struggled this season to the tune of a 5.58 ERA, looked like vintage Justin Masterson tonight, pitching 7 shutout innings, allowing only 3 hits while getting 3 strikeouts and 12 groundouts. The offense banged out 5 runs on 10 hits, which feels like 10 runs on 20 hits with this offense. The scoring for the Cardinals started in the top of the third inning with a Jon Jay single, Matt Carpenter single, Matt Holliday walk, and a Matt Adams single up the middle to...

Masterson pitches Cardinals past Marlins, 5-2

Justin Masterson pitched seven scoreless innings in his best outing since joining the St. Louis Cardinals, and they averted a series sweep by beating the Miami Marlins 5-2 Wednesday.

Marlins grounded as Cardinals avoid sweep behind Masterson

All but five of the 21 outs Justin Masterson recorded were the product of strikeouts or ground balls.MIAMI – Marlins' manager Mike Redmond before Wednesday's game spoke of the difficulty involved with sweeping an opponent. As his team demonstrated, not only is it tough, it's all but impossible when you finish with five hits, don't score until the ninth, and give up a pair of unearned runs on two separate errors.

Jim Ingraham: Justin Masterson's struggles were key to Cleveland Indians downfall

So much for the change of scenery theory. In his first two starts for the St. Louis Cardinals, Justin Masterson was 1-1 with an 11.25 ERA, and opposing batters have hit .412 against him. Changing teams and changing leagues hasn't helped at all. Masterson's flat tire season continues, and the millions of dollars it's costing him as a free agent this winter is incalculable.

Justin Masterson may well end up contributing heavily to the St. Louis Cardinals in their bid to reach the postseason.

The Justin Masterson trade: Low-hanging pie.

Meet Justin Masterson. I think you are going to like him. Good morning! I've been kind of terrified of this trade deadline. I came to the conclusion that the big names weren't going to be worth the cost in a general way, and specifically, like Ben, I began to question whether this squad is worth spending future bullets on anyhow. I don't see a good way to upgrade the offense, and if Matt Holliday doesn't hit for power, someone in right doesn't hit for anything, Shelby isn't fixed, Waino's fading peripherals presage doom, and Yadi and Wacha can't return to log meaningful innings, even a...

Justin Masterson's up-and-down journey with the Cleveland Indians came full circle

This was Justin Masterson, the guy who brought a chicken to the ballpark, the guy who starred at charity bowling events, the guy who -- though he, deep down, felt that burning desire to be the best -- never veered from his laid-back approach during trying times. And there were plenty.
