Maybe it's just me but I would kind of like the White Sox to wait on this until he has another healthy season under his belt. Yes, I know that that would make the price go up but I'd want to make absolutely certain that he can stay healthy and that 2012 wasn't a fluke.

I agree.

If there's anything I think the current ownership has done right over their tenure is to not sink too much money long term into pitchers. They've been famously been burnt a couple times and I think they've learned their lesson. Pitchers, while if they stay healthy can be a great deal if you invest long term early. But if they break down they can really hamstring your franchise for a long, long time.

Same here. Guy has had one great full season. There's a long history of guys who have done that, let's see him put back to back ones together first.

Yes. Names like "Bart Johnson" and "Francisco Barrios" ring a bell as young phenoms who had less than stellar careers. Sox cannot afford for that to happen this time.

Good, timely piece by Jim Margalus at South Side Sox analyzing young starters who were signed to extensions before they hit their arb years and what that might mean for Sale.

The takeaway is that the average life of these days is 5 years, $30 million, which, let's be honest, if Sale is willing to take that, YOU HAVE TO DO IT RIGHT NOW.

I really like this deal for the Sox. Those last 2 years at 25 (12.5 per) will be a huge savings. He might end up being a 20mil/yr pitcher by that point. Also if we are at a point to blow things up in 3 years those last 2 years will get us whatever we want in a trade.

Levineline's first report was wrong. It's 5 years, $32.5 million, and the 2 option years totalling $25 million are for 2018 and 2019.

The original report of 3 years guaranteed at $30 M had me a little upset, I felt that was a bit of an overpay even if it did come with two option years, but a guaranteed 5 years, $32.5 M with 2 potential option years worth a total of $25 M tacked on at the end? Bravo, Rick. BRA-****ING-O.



Yearly salary breakdown from SSS:

2013 - $850 K
2014 - $3.5 M
2015 - $6 M
2016 - $9.15
2017 - $12 M
2018 - $12.5 M OPTION
2019 - $13.5 M OPTION
