    The Red Sox knew they were getting a 5-time All-star and a Top-5 Cy Young Award candidate who had double digit wins in each of the last five years, but could they ever have imagined he would bring back “appointment television�

    Red Sox Nation has officially anointed it Sale Day every fifth day he takes the mound. It brings back memories of Pedro Martinez, circa 1999. Losing streaks will come to an end. The K crew can once again be gainfully employed and we are treated to an efficient and masterful performance.

    He is averaging 10-strikeouts and 1.3 Walks per game over his 24 starts and even started a game against the Yankees, which ended in 2 Hours and 21 Minutes. How’s that for efficient?

    Sale has been so good, and not just against the Evil Empire. As of August 16th, he leads the AL in virtually every starting pitching category. In Wins (14), Strikeouts (241), ERA (2.51) and strikeouts per nine innings (12.89). He is also leading with the least amount of walks per nine innings (.166) and has the lowest opposing batting average. Opposing batters are hitting below the Mendoza line at .191.

    Sit back, relax and enjoy the show, Saturday is Sale Day!

    Sounds like you guys are really stroking his ego

    Don't hold any events for fans involving throwback uniforms or ban creepy kids from locker room because he will go nuts and lose it

    When Red Sox fans call Yankees the "evil empire" when they are arguably more evil

    "We won't buy players, it's above our nature"

    Buys Pablo Sandoval for an inane amount :laugh:

    Love when Sox idiots refer to Yankees as Evil Empire.

    Chris Sale (14-5) struck out nine, but was tagged for the four runs and seven hits. He is still looking for his first victory in the rivalry. He had allowed three runs or more only once over his previous six starts and had a 1.19 ERA in three starts against the Yankees. New York is 4-0 in games he has started.

    Yanks are 3-1 in games he has started, not 4-0. Boston won last Sunday.

    That "Creepy" kid was there for like all of Adam LaRoche's tenure and nobody had any issue with it. Ever see a professional locker room? Kids are there all the time.

    What I also remember is LaRoche saying anything he learns in the locker room is more valuable than he'd learn in school. And he's right. :laugh:

    Plenty of people did have issue with it

    Several players went to KW about it and that is why he brought it up to Laroche and Sale melted down while Laroche quit

    Players didn't want to say anything because of the cult like obsession Laroche and Sale had about kid

    But should he be allowed to stay past the 7th inning?

    You can't even attempt to make an argument. Thereby not being 'arguable'.

    The Red Sox have had a few of these this decade but it pales in comparison to the Yankees.
