"It's great, because we're winning ballgames. That's what makes it fun. The guys are going out there and they're fighting hard. Look at Ubaldo [Jimenez]. He's been tremendous for us. That's what you like to see. Everyone else is picking it up. They don't need me. I'm just here to encourage, smile and give them hugs. It seems like that's working right now." -- Masterson, on being confined to the dugout as his injury heals
