red sox would be getting ripped off....

I don't think so. Ells is oft injured and in contract year. Buch is a head case.

Over the past 4 years, Masterson is 33-48 with a 4.29, while Buchholz is 41-22 with a 3.62.

That may be, but we know that Buchholz has a back issue and Materson is very duarable and will likely outlast him.

Buchholz has better stuff I agree. However, we just don't know when he will break down again.
