In First Move, Dombrowski Lowers Boom On Masterson
For his first official move as Red Sox President of Baseball Operations, Dave Dombrowski cut ties with an original Boston property—Justin Masterson. Masterson had been designated for assignment by Ben Cherington last week, but (conceivably) could have been re-signed with the club. That, of course, was highly unlikely. Nevertheless, the finality of actually releasing Masterson is telling. Look for a lot more action from "Double D"—and soon.
