I don't think lefties see his slider well at all. He nailed the inside corner twice on Thome and Thome was whining about it. Two pitches later he swept one over the outside corner. Perhaps Ozzie should have went with him in the 10th on Tuesday? You know Ozzie's not afraid to put him in that situation and it appears Sale is pretty fearless as well. That was a big situation yesterday in a hostile environment and he got the job done flawlessly.

I just hope he can stay healthy.
