Sig Chris Sale review

SDS

I suppose I’m not good with mixing is pitches or something. I got shelled with him.

3 games, 18.9 innings and a near 6 era. I didn’t miss location, he just gave up bomb after bomb. Very frustrating.

He ain’t my guy I guess. It’s a small sample size but for that price he needs a sinker in this year’s game.

These were all 700+ games, so I was facing decent hitters but man. I picked him up because I have a hard time hitting him with his arm slot.

I guess other's do not, or they just sit their pci and wait.

His 2seam fastball has the sinkerball quirk, which pretty much makes it a sinker.

Got hammered in the usual spots I use the sinker...

He has been good for me on that level. Trick is tunneling his slider and circle change, than mixing the two fastballs in.

He's been of my best pitchers. Especially against lefties, the two-seamer in and low and the slider away are deadly.

I’m sure... like I said, I can’t hit him, but boy can I serve him up on a platter.

I just sold him. Can’t justify that expense for a guy I don’t pitch well. I can pick up the entire collection for this inning and hope for a good selection for the 9th.

SDS

I had my first start with him last night. CG, SO, 22 K's. It's AS difficulty, so it wasn't overly impressive. I did feel like I was in total control of his pitches until the 9th inning though. He left a slider and circle change dead center, but fortunately they were looking for a fastball.

SDS

He’s good at everything and great at nothing. After a couple innings he’s easy to pick up, same deal with his LS card back in the spring.

If you aren't good with him then now might be the time to sell. His price has gone up roughly 60k in the last few days.

Yep. Way ahead of you. Picked up Kershaw and I do just as well with him but at least can use him for the next inning voucher.

Don't expect to make money off of that unless you get the boss in like the first day.

Or first 3 days at least. Lately boss prices have gone UP on day 2 before starting to fall for good

If I don’t have the time to grind it out day one I’ll sell the collection to those that do I guess.

Nothing I really need stubs for now besides maybe Mize or Wagner.
