Why Chris Sale may be the most valuable player in baseball

Yesterday, White Sox left-hander Chris Sale put together one of the most artful pitching performances of the season. Facing the Crosstown rival Chicago Cubs, who had won 15 of its previous 16 games, Sale fanned 15 Cubs hitters in only 7 innings of shutout work, whilst giving up a single hit and walk. If it wasn’t for a 116-pitch count through those seven innings, Sale would have...

Boxscore Breakdown #111: Full Sale – White Sox 8, Angels 2
