Sale was a stud today, and looked like the ace we all want him to be.
Got to give credit to Thornton- he came in a huge high leverage situation that wasn't of his making and blew Moustakis away on 3 pitches.
I liked seeing his emotion, too. He's normally a pretty reserved guy- I think he knew this was a big moment for him on the season even though it was opening day. He lost 10 games last year- if he gives up a hit to blow the win for Sale there would be an 8 page thread about how he can't be trusted and everyone would be holding their breath when he comes into a game for the next month.
