Obviously, Sale wasn't the best pitcher in his last start because he was the pitcher who didn't stay around to hive his team a chance to win.

My argument isn't that Sale isn't a good pitcher. My argument is that leaving him in to throw 127 pitches isn't a crime against nature.

I have no problem with the amount of work Sale got last year, as some seem to. Throwing 127 pitches last week shouldn't have put him on the disabled list, although in this case it seems to be to give him a rest instead of healing damage. Throwing 127 pitches in a pitchers'' duel is something you should expect your big-game pitcher to do. Last night Verlander stayed in the game against the Sox to throw 119 pitches when he had a six-run lead. And he wasn't pitching nearly as well as Sale was pitching last week.

If Sale's innings are going to be limited this year because he is throwing so many pitches, he will need to work to get hitters out earlier in the count.

Seems like the point is that people are just going to start saying "I told you so" or "The Sox never should have signed him to that contract" which is just complete bull****.

Well, if someone hypothetically said that, that someone would sound ignorant.

More on Sale. The article really doesn't have much depth; it's more about how slim the Sox are in pitching with Sale being out. However, it is interesting to note the guys who were originally diagnosed with flexor strains only to end up having TJ surgery.

Especially considering that the contract he signed is EXTREMELY team-friendly, even if he were to have a longer term injury.
