Agreed. Sale doesn't need any other pitches. He just needs to refine the offspeed pitches already in his arsenal.

If we're going to worry about a pitcher, we should probably worry about Danks. Obviously, he's coming off the injury and isn't where he needs to be. He got hit around by the Angels this afternoon. He's got another three weeks to find his stuff.
