    We need him to be rested and strong for game 1.

    It's odd because not too long ago, there were tons of complaints when Farrell started Fister in place of Sale, and that's when it was still marathon time, and getting Sale some extra rest made sense. This is not the time to rest him.

    It's 90% that we win the division. Worth the risk to give sale 1 less start between now and playoffs

    No, seriously, anybody but Sale.

    Maybe give Price 2 innings, Workman 2, Velazquez 2-3...

    What a bunch of fucking dimwits. We are 2 1/2 games ahead of Yankees and you want to take a chance losing the lead? Moon, what is wrong with you? I thought you had more common sense. Let me get this fucking straight. You are willing to risk division championship for wildcard so you can rest Sale? Are you fucking nuts?

    You can rest him AFTER we clinch the Division. You guys are FUCKING NUTS.

    Let's rest him NOW so he can pitch in PLAY IN GAME. That's smart.

    It's pretty simple to understand. No need for vulgar insults.

    We don't win jack without Sale being 100% strong.

    He's started to look shaky and has a history of dropping off late in the season. We can't afford him to not be "the man".

    Yeah, I get the argument that we have to clinch, but look at the schedule, he's scheduled to pitch the last game of the season-- no way we do that, so he ends up getting 9 days of rest once- right before his first playoff game.

    I could easily ask "are you EF'in nuts? We not rest him 2 extra days now, 1 extra days before his next start and then 1 extra day before his first playoff game?

    If we gag this season, it won't be because Sale was pushed back 1 game twice.

    Besides, we're not going to lose our lead.

    I'll just say this: without a strong Sale, we have no chance.

    Sale has been everything we could ever dream of and more.

    Think of how many wins our zombies on offense cost him earlier in the year!!!!

    Ps: otani will be everything sale is, and more. Desperate dave needs to move heaven and earth to sign this kid in the offseason.

    Maybe we should pitch Sale for 3 complete games- 140 pitches each- just to avoid a tiny chance of having to play in a play-in game.

    NOT!

    Congrats on 300. Once the game was in the bag (2-0) I would have liked to see him yanked. Sorry but this season should not be about individual numbers. We have a shot at a parade.....

    111 pitches.

    I'd not have even started him tonight.

    We better rest him plenty from now until game 1.

    I say throw the motherfucker out there again Tuesday and let him pitch until his arm falls off so the Sox take the division.

    This is big dick time.

    It's not the time to keep it in your pants.

    Not starting Sale is playing to loose.

    Nick is right.
    "Hating the Yankees like it's a religion since 94'" RIP Mike.


    "It's also a simple and indisputable fact that WAR isn't the be-all end-all in valuations, especially in real life. Wanna know why? Because an ace in run-prevention for 120 innings means more often than not, a sub-standard pitcher covering for the rest of the IP that pitcher fails to provide. You can't see value in a vacuum when a player does not provide full-time production."

    Sale was leading the league in IP before tonight's 111 pitch outing.

    He's been up and down the second half- much like his career numbers' pattern.

    1st half 2.74 /0.974 WHIP
    2nd half 3.28/ 1.143 WHIP

    I agree winning the division is important, but it will do us little use, if "his arm falls off" on the last day of the regular season.

    Maybe, I'm over confident with our chances. Maybe one extra day of rest before the end of the season will be enough for Sale, but I think he would greatly respond to extra rest.
