Sale was excellent last night. He's placing a big emphasis on finishing the year strong. Let's hope he does just that. We all hope that one day he will be the pitcher to lead us to October glory. First, he's gotta learn how to get through September. Like a lot of guys, he was out of gas at the end of last season. No time like the present to build up the endurance that is needed to be that 30-start, 200-plus-innings ace.
