Masterson excellent in relief; bullpen looking strong

It looks like the bullpen could be rollercoastering into another dominant phase; those guys have done a bang-up job of late, and have a 3.77 ERA for the month of July. The last week, when the starters carried most of the load, of course has been very good. If the starters get in a groove, that will help these guys from getting overused and overexposed.

Despite the lack of a rock-solid setup man, the Sox have several guys who could step up in the role and be dominant this year. That’s what I like about them, and that may be what prevents a trade from being made for a veteran reliever.

Justin Masterson threw 2 2/3 perfect innings in his first outing out of the bullpen. Can this kid do anything more to endear himself to Red Sox Nation this season?
