Chris Sale Continues To Prove His Awesomeness

Whether you’re a Chicago White Sox fan or not, it’s hard not to like Chris Sale. He’s one of baseball’s best pitchers and his laid back personality is awesome to watch on camera. He recently joined MLB Network’s Intentional Talk this week, and if you haven’t seen it yet, it’s highly recommended you do. Sale discusses the word game he plays during post-pitching interviews...

Kansas City, dogs conquer White Sox and win 6-2 against Sale

It's just that kind of season. Royals Devil Magic abounds. In the pregame, which I wrote after last night's awful loss, I was admittedly bitter, and I did not think the Royals had much of a chance against Chris Sale. Who has been Randy Johnson since he became a starter in 2012. Here's what I wrote: ERA is a flawed stat, sure, but get this: Since the 1994 MLB strike...

No Wind in Chicago’s Sale as Royals Best Sox

“The Hunt for Blue October” is alive and well this September. Last week, the team was on the brink of disaster, and fans, including myself, were slowly starting to give up on our beloved Royals. After taking two out of three from the Chicago White Sox, the people have slowly been sucked back in, and have regained the slightest bit of hope. After dropping the longest game in Royals...

ESPN CY Young Prediction Machine is BROKEN

ESPN has fired up their Cy Young Prediction Machine, and it looks like Chris Sale is the 9th most likely player to receive the award. Yes, you read that correct. NINTH. But with the season Sale is having, how is it possible he doesn’t receive the award, or at least finish second in voting? Let’s look at the standard categories that voters analyze, as well as some of the sabermetrics...

Daily SP Rankings: Wednesday, Sep 17

Cole Hamels, Chris Sale, Madison Bumgarner, David Price — there’s no shortage of must-start aces. As for the rest? A ton of guys rate league average or better! Let’s go to the rankings. C.J. Wilson rates well at home against a lefty-heavy Mariners lineup. Over the last two weeks the Mariners are 21st in wOBA (.289) and they’re 29th against LHP this season (also .289). In...

Here is Visual Proof That Chris Sale Is Not Human

Thank you, Deadspin, for unraveling the mystery that is the anatomy of White Sox pitcher Chris Sale.  As the article above proves, Chris Sale is, in fact, an invertebrate humanoid alien likely from a galaxy Neil DeGrasse Tyson is yet to know about. How Sale got here, we will never know. Nor will we ever figure out how he doesn’t require weekly elbow reconstruction surgery. One...

AL Cy Young Candidates: Chris Sale

Pitchers have dominated in 2014. The average ERA for a major league starting pitcher is just 3.86, and strikeout rates are just a shade under 20 percent. A host of pitchers are having excellent seasons, including Felix Hernandez, Corey Kluber and Jon Lester. One pitcher that might be getting overlooked in the American League Cy Young conversation is Chicago White Sox ace Chris...

Chris Sale dominates struggling A's in White Sox victory

Their record might not show it, but prior evidence and days like Thursday have Chris Sale believing the White Sox are trending upward. If their series against the Oakland A’s is to be taken as a sign, one the White Sox wrapped up with a 1-0 victory at U.S. Cellular Field, Sale could be on to something. Departing from a horrid stretch of play, the White Sox beat Oakland for the...

Hawk Harrelson Makes a Fan for Life

CHICAGO, IL — There has not been many positives, outside of Jose Abreu and Chris Sale, for the Chicago White Sox this season. They are 16 games under .500 and 15.5 games back of the division-leading Kansas City Royals. When you happen to commentate for a team whose season is over well before the last game has been played, you may often look for some positives in and around the...

Ex-teammates hook up Adam Dunn with cool gift

As Oakland Athletics DH Adam Dunn enters the final month of his career (and potential first playoff appearance, although that is getting more cloudy by the day), his impact on the game and teammates is beginning to be apparent.  Known for an easy-going style (and mashing the ball), he was popular with teammates and fans alike.  Two former teammates of the Chicago White Sox took...
