MLB wants the World Series to be the only news during the World Series. No trades, no contract extensions, nobody fired. Of course, that did not stop the always self-sacrificing A-Rod from signing a major contract extension during the World Series a few years ago (it was a non-Yankee World Series).
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.
