This is why you'd be crazy to trade him. Whatever quality player we would get in return would probably be older than Sale, less upside. We're building for the future, not the 2013 season.
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.
