Quote to note

"If you want to find something negative to say about Masty, you'd have to really dig. And then I'm not sure you could come up with something. What's there not to like about a guy that anchors your staff, throws lots of innings, is probably the nicest kid in the world, competes? He's a great teammate, a great person. You could go on and on."
-- Indians manager Terry Francona, on Justin Masterson
