CHRIS SALE…big baby

ChrisSale

White Sox pitcher Chris Sale apparently doesn’t have an off-switch or adult self control. This past Saturday, Sale was scheduled to start. The White Sox had a “Throwback” Day, at which players had to wear uniforms from the 1980’s. Sale didn’t like the uniform so he did what any 2 year old would do… he threw a fit, and cut up his uniform with scissors. Then he voiced his displeasure at a team official, in the form a yelling at the official. To be clear, the uniforms Sale refused to wear are hideous. The Sox should retire, permanently the jerseys in question but that’s not the point. Sale acted like a Brat, who needs a time-out.

He got what he wanted. Sorta. His petulance cost him a five day suspension, and all of  Baseball commentators calling him a big baby. I suspect Sale is like many really good athletes who have been handed everything in life. They treat the world as annoyances just occupying their space, and if the athlete doesn’t like something, they lash out. Sale needs to grow up. Maybe getting his pay docked and suspended for 5 games will do it. Maybe not.
