It's been so incredible to watch this guy pitch the last three years. Will always remember his Sox debut--coming on in relief in August of 2010 in Baltimore. I believe his first six pitches were balls. It was the evening of my grandfather's funeral. I saw him pitch for the first time a few weeks after, against the Yankees on Frank Thomas day.

I was also at his first home start in 2012, against Detroit. I think it was his third start overall, before the whole "Sale is now the closer" fiasco. He got roughed up--in fact I've seen the guy start probably 7 or 8 times right now and he's only really been great on one or two occasions...maybe I should cut it out.

Yes, I'm already getting nostalgic about Sale. He's about six months older than me, and until Abreu came along I was thinking he would be the last White Sox great to be older than me.

I agree with Coop. As great as he has been, and particularly last season, I have noticed things that he can improve on. To begin with he needs to stay healthy all season long. As far as in game things, he needs to cut down on his hit batters, that cost him a few times this year. Also he has had a hard time finishing his outings, seems that he loses his stuff around pitches 90-110. I understand this is the case with most pitchers that they tire at the end of games, but it is an area he can improve on. It will be good for him to not be content with being the best in the AL, even though he missed out on the Cy Young.
