If there's a case to be made for Sale to have high pitch counts and innings, it's certainly not based on 112 years of history.
All? Really? I would never say Sale will last another 15 years without a major injury. I'm not Cleo and lots of pitchers without the dreaded inverted W blow their arms out too. Pitchers just seem so fragile nowadays regardless of how they throw.
