This is why they paid him an insane amount of money. It is in lieu of a NTC. The White Sox could not do the same thing because he had 5/10 rights with us.
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.
