    I would say unbelievable, but anything is possible when it comes to Chris FRAIL.

    Well, I suppose it's a good thing we didn't empty the farm to compete for a 2nd wildcard spot this year.

    I heard from someone who wasn't there because he doesn't exist that Sale wiped out when a big screen TV suddenly ran across his bike path.

    Over exaggerated 101. Who said anything about emptying out the farm?

    It was his right wrist - thankfully, said the eternal optimist.

    The Red Sox are 8-1 in their last 9 postseason games against the Yankees.

    48 innings pitched in 3 years on that new contract. Talk about good value.

    That was probably DD worst signing. Even worse than Price. He signed him that extension knowing of his arm problems.

    DD deserves all the bashing in the world, and then some for the Sale ext. Enough said.

    I heard that someone tweeted, “Sale made a deal with the Devil for the WS title and then his bones turned into pretzels.” LOL!

    I googled the odds of snakebite. This was the first hit: "Even using the highest estimate from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention of 8,000 annual snakebites per year, the odds of you being bitten are 40,965 to one."

    Rounded off, that's 41 thousand to one... #41 -- Chris Sale's number.

    He needs to be stored in bubble wrap until Spring Training.

    maybe he needs a bone density scan to evaluate just how prone Sale will be to ongoing bone breaks. Even when the 78 year old President fell off his bicycle, he didn't break anything.

    Sale now becomes the most likely dead money contract over the next 2 years to clog up the spending budget.. What a loser !

    This guy is likely to break something every time he sneezes

    And yet I can almost see the story from next February now:

    "Sale says he's 100% healthy and ready to put injury bad luck behind him, excited for 2023 season".

    The Red Sox are 8-1 in their last 9 postseason games against the Yankees.
