Say Leland saves him for the ninth and has Nathan pitch the eighth, what if Nathan gives up 4 runs? Needed to make sure he got in the game.

Yes, I am not a mongoloid. I know what Leyland was thinking, I just don't agree with it.

he did the right thing. Made sure he got the inning. I'm happy he doesn't get the save.

In a pitching duel like this, Sale should be the MVP.

Too bad it'll likely go to Rivera or one of the more well-known position players.

Sale should be the MVP as the only pitcher with 2 perfect innings but it will probably be Rivera.
