Other MLB executives discuss the Justin Masterson news (I kid, I kid)

Dave is happy.

You may notice that this is in the Humor section; this is because it is a parody.

Word is out about contract discussion between the Indians and Justin Masterson having fallen through, and it's been a hot topic of conversation inside many other front offices:

Terry Ryan to Bill Smith: "I thought the Indians were supposed to be smart!"

Dave Dombrowski to Mike Ilitch: "You might get to see us win a championship after all."

Rick Hahn to Kenny Williams: "YESSSSSS!!"

Frank Wren to John Schuerholz: "I thought the Indians were supposed to be smart!"

Jed Hoyer to Theo Epstein: "Wait, they did what?!"

Brian Cashman to CC Sabathia: "So their MLBPA player rep came to them with a discounted proposal and they said no!..."

Sandy Alderson to Omar Minaya: "I thought the Indians were supposed to be smart!"

John Mozeliak to The St. Louis Post-Dispatch: "That's okay, every team has AA and AAA rotations full of future aces, it's not just us."

Joe Torre to Bud Selig: "Bud, wake up! You've got to see this."

Bill Bavasi to Walt Jocketty: "I think we should trade Joey Votto, Mike Leake and Tony Cingrani to Cleveland for this Masterson fellow."

Neal Huntington to the team's Navy SEAL trainer: "Other reporters are saying the same thing? ... What about Hoynes?"

Billy Beane to the Oakland Tribune: "See, we're willing to spend more than some teams!"

Rubén Amaro to The Philadelphia Inquirer: "That's a good move. He's not old enough to be useful."

Dayton Moore to anyone who will listen: "Here in Kansas City, we have a plan."
