I believe it is 103 IP. Considering how Ranaudo got demolished after pitching 120+ in addition to postseason innings, I'd say it's a safe move to keep Sale's pitching load down. IIRC, Sale also hasn't been pitching with the low arm slot for too long so that will take some time for his body to get used to as well.

Yeah 150 didn't make sense to me.

Nice. I think it's safe to say it's only a matter of time before he replaces Threets. Although Threets hasn't been horrible, just he hasn't been lights out either.

Until he allows a run, he's been lights out.

Um, what part of his 0.00 ERA do you find not "lights out" about? Or his below 1.000 WHIP? Or that he hasn't served up a dinger yet? If anything, I think Sale hasn't been lights out enough for us to call him up prematurely. He's given up two homeruns already and for a guy who is supposed to have good control, he's given up a bit too many walks.

6.1 IP, 3 H, 2 ER, 2 HRA, 4 BB, 15 K, .136 BAA, 2.84 ERA

I understand concern about his walks, but wow. That's a ridiculous stat line.

Don't get me wrong, I'm looooving the strikeouts but his walks and homeruns against are a bit alarming. Oh well, small sample size. I'm sure it is just a fluke.

To say that Threets is amazing because he's yet to give up a run isn't fair. He's got 9 IP so far. I just don't think this is going to last the rest of the year. He's WAY better than Williams was (at least so far), so I'm glad to have him. I actually wanted Threets to make the team out of ST over Williams. I'm not saying the Sox should get rid of him to make room for Sale. I'm surprised Sale moved up this much as is. It's just nice to see Sale doing well and apparently be the next option if a LHP is needed. You can't argue against 15 K's in only 6.1 as being not impressive for someone like Sale.

Looks like Sale will be in the big leagues before most of the other top picks even sign.

I'm guessing Threets doesn't clear waivers.

Yeah, I would agree with that. Might be something else to consider. Maybe Linebrink goes on the DL.

No way. He has been one of our best relievers recently. I know its been in mop up time, but he has his stuff back, or confidence. You don't want to mess with that.
