How does everyone feel about Sale coming back? Were there burned bridges between him and the fans/management? Would everyone want him back?

Yes I think the bridges were burned between him in management.

I would not be mad about the concept of him coming back if the org could get around that. However...

2 years ago at this time people were saying "we need more hitters" because we had traded for so much pitching. Next year's rotation has potentially Rodon, Kopech, Lopez, Giolito, Dunning, and Cease already, and that's assuming no one else has a good year. At some point, we have to sink or swim with these guys. So...there's  pitching available next offseason but I'm not sure the fit is right. We'll see how this year goes.

If Dodgers sign Pollock that has to take them 100% out of the Harper Sweepstakes.

Nationals have no legitimate chance either.

The Harper sweepstakes is really going to come down to the Phillies and White Sox as I've stated before. Phillies with the hedge since we will likely sign Machado and won't put up a ton of money like they do. I think Harper is better off here tho since the AL has the DH.

CWS sign RHP Mac Welsh who pitched in one college game. Hilarious. Maybe he won a bottle cap contest?

I'm guessing it's someone who has really taken to a data-driven approach to pitching and has worked with some cutting edge programs. There is a story about a 38 year old who hasnt pitched in 10 years getting his arm up to 98 MPH through all the new approaches to science based pitching.
