Arguing that Sale is more talented, has a better future, is intrinsically a better pitcher, someone who will be better in his next start or next year may be legitimate. Arguing that Sale been as good a pitcher this year, in the real world, in a perfect world where people watch baseball, is not.
You live on another planet. Just about every stat (EXCEPT FOR W-L) shows that there is at most a negligible difference between the two. I can't believe this thread is still going on.
