This deal is completely independent of the Thome deal. The Thome deal was not done to help to the Sox, but rather to give Thome a chance at a ring.
This just in from the newswires: The Anti-Trust Division of the US Department of Justice has announced that whenever Sale take The Bump, it is unfair competition in violation of various federal and state laws. However, he is not being prosecuted because it is so ****in awesome to watch him do his craft.
