White Sox Game Notes For Monday vs. Boston

Sale told reporters he has fond memories of his time in Chicago. If Sale wins this will just add to his already impressive start to the season. I just want to be ready when I get my chance up here to be ready to take advantage of it.

It's true. For every Derek Jeter, whose Yankees pinstripes might as well have been branded to his body during a 20-year career spent entirely in NY, there are dozens of All-Star-level players who change uniforms multiple times, either through trades or free agency. Maybe Hahn moves him in the winter, as he did with Sale. He's 28, firmly in his prime and healthy. Sale has also been named to 5 consecutive All-Star games, (he won the 2013 All-Star game) and has finished in the top 6 in Cy Young voting for the past five seasons. He is 3-6 with a 5.47 ERA in 22 career major league appearances, including 12 starts. According to the Elias Sports Bureau, Sale has joined Pedro Martinez, Curt Schilling and Roger Clemens as the only pitchers to rack up at least 100 strikeouts in their first 10 starts of a season.

Bet on Red Sox vs.

"There's no hard feelings", Sale said of his relationship with upper management. "If anything, I owe them one". Despite this, I'm glad the White Sox traded him. At this point in the season, this would be a very promising and hopeful sign for the organization. Chris Sale isn't the reason there was no postseason baseball on the South Side during his tenure with the White Sox. But not finding a way into the postseason, and not winning during the Sale-Quintana years, will always be tough to swallow for the White Sox faithful. Reliever Blake Wood (0-3) allowed Morales' home run. The lanky left-hander, traded to the Red Sox last December for four prospects, struck out nine to boost his major-league-leading total to 110. "He's eager to get back to us, and physically he feels great", Red Sox manager John Farrell said. "I think (Sale would) probably chuckle after that, too". It reminds me of his overuse of Aroldis Chapman in the playoffs. All of the familiar faces Sale will be glaring at are vestiges of a group that was supposed to win the AL Central. Allow Cooper to explain. The five innings pitched were a season low. In the top half of the fifth, after a first quick out, Travis hit a double and Leon drew a walk to put two on for Bradley. His average fastball velocity is back up to 94.4 miles per hour after dipping to 92.8 last season, according to Fangraphs.

EU President warns Trump against Paris climate deal exit
Speaking in Berlin about the Paris climate change accord, he said that "China in recent years has stayed true to its commitment". Obama had made efforts during his administration to reduce USA emissions in an attempt to avert catastrophic climate change.

"So walking in there was kind of getting my bearings straight", he said. "He had it in his back pocket whenever he needed it".

Fantasy Impact Expectations were high for Sale going into this matchup.

That included a war of words with White Sox executive vice president Ken Williams over the involvement of Adam LaRoche's son with the club and LaRoche's ensuing retirement. Though, nearly everyone is expecting a bounce back from the 28-year-old, just chalk it up as a couple of bad games and move on. "I appreciated it. I did everything I could while I was here for the team, for the fans, for the city, and to get that same respect back is nice". "I think people were expecting something a little different".
