Chris Sale is now a legend. I mean, there are ways to try to get traded, as has been rumored with Sale recently, and then there are ways to get traded. According to Tommy Stokke of Fan Rag Sports, Sale just shot to the top of the list.
Earlier in the day, it was reported that Sale was scratched from tonight because he was ill. As it turns out, he just went Freddy Krueger on the ugly team throwback uniforms. Stokke’s report has since been confirmed by others, including Ken Rosenthal.
So far this season, Sale has come out publicly against his GM in the Drake LaRoche saga, and has now declared war on throwback uniforms. Who wants to give up the farm system for this level-headed competitor?
