You missed that thread. I have my own theories on it. Everyone is bothered seeing Sale putting up 120+ pitches, but Lincecum threw 150 in his no-hitter. My theory is that this is Chicago, where Dusty Baker was lampooned for destroying Prior and Wood in 2003, and Sox fans are afraid of seeing Sale get hurt. Apples and oranges, though, and I'm not entirely convinced Dusty was at fault.
