After last night’s loss to the Tigers, in which Indians starter Justin Masterson gave up seven runs on ten hits and four walks in four innings, he had this to say to reporters: “It’s really disappointing to let my team down. The biggest thing is that I wanted to set a tone and help us turn this around, and that didn’t happen. On the bright side, my wife just told me that all her past and future profits from her cookie business are going to charity, so that brightens things up.”

I don’t know about you, but I feel better already.

    please tell me that is a joke….

  • Peter says:

    I almost tossed my cookies when I heard this…

  • Vern Morrison says:

    Meryl Masterson’s cookie website has this on the front page now:

    “Meryl is humbled to say that the profits of every cookie order will be donated to charity.

    With every order you will be helping to clothe and feed children in the Dominican Republic and countless other places throughout the world.”

    That’s laudable, it really is, and it’s a good thing that the couple can live on Justin’s Indians salary, and can thus afford to send the cookie money to charities. But the way he came across in the interview made it seem like he didn’t care all that much about having pitched so poorly.
