Justin Masterson’s effort last night was a stunning example of what a player cast off by a team can do when his A-game coincides with a chance to get a measure of revenge against that team for letting him go. In my opinion such a performance qualifies as a major surprise, for a pitcher who came into the game with a 1-5 record and an ERA of over 5, and facing a powerful lineup.â†µ
