SALE COULD BE SOLD
Just a little nugget, perhaps a preview of the wild ride we are on through the trade deadline. Just moments ago, the Chicago White Sox, who have fallen out of the pennant race, has reportedly scratched ace pitcher Chris Sale from the game tonight against Detroit. Stating that Sale has the flu, the pitcher will not pitch tonight in Chicago despite being advertised as the starting pitcher.
Word on the street is that the Texas Rangers are hot for Sale and according to CBS Sports, "You can be sure other teams are as well, and the reported asking price in a Sale deal involves five top prospects." How about the Yankees? I mean, right now, the Yankees are making their ascent from the bottom in the AL East. Why can't we be "other teams?"
I know it is far fetched, but a fan can be hopeful. Just wanted to share this with you. Let's see what happens next as the trade frenzy begins.
