Daily DraftKings Picks: Tuesday, Aug 19

Yesterday one of my readers tweeted at me that he felt Chris Sale would have a bad day. I’m not sure why he felt that way (perhaps it was just LHP vs. Baltimore?), but he was sort of right.

Rodon could be a White Sox call-up in September

First-round draft pick Carlos Rodon and Chris Sale have a few things in common, and it's no secret the White Sox have Rodon on the "Sale Plan" for success. Rodon, the third selection in the 2014 draft, was rewarded with the largest bonus of any draftee ($6.58 million), and advanced from Class A Winston-Salem to Triple-A Charlotte on Saturday after only four appearances...

Fantasy Roundup: Sale’s Greatness

In fantasy baseball, elite pitchers don’t get a fair shake. For the most part this phenomenon has two causes: Cause 1: We Care About Production on the Margins Great players hit a set it and forget it mode. You plug them in your lineup every day and they consistently go about their business with few hiccups along the way. Non-elite players are constantly being re-evaluated. They...

Chris Sale’s Awesome Post Game Chicago White Sox Reporter Scott Merkin let fans in on a little game that Chris Sale likes to play in his post game interviews.

Baseball card: Gary Peters, dominant left-hander for White Sox

I got my Chris Sale fix on Wednesday at U.S. Cellular Field. I just hope he stays healthy because he truly is special. Sale reminds me of another young left-hander for the Sox: Gary Peters.
