I feel bad for Sale. He was good enough to win. That's been a familiar refrain for him this year. Not much offensive support.

In 6 June starts Chris Sale pitched 42.1 innings with a 3.21 ERA, 1.05 WHIP, 53 strikeouts and 9 walks. He went 0-5.

Sale needs to get an attorney and file for non-support.
For the season, Sale is tied for 3rd among all pitchers with 4.4 WAR and top-20 in ERA among starters at 2.79, top 10 in K/9 and K/BB as well. Yet in run support he gets only 2.73 runs per start. No starter in MLB with stats like that gets shafted worse. It's beyond pathetic, it's criminal.
