And people said we weren't playing meaningful baseball in October this year!

Congrats to Sale!

 

I also hope that this brings to light more of Walsh's accomplishments. I feel like he needs to be honored by the team.

 

But damn, Sale is amazing.

I've noticed that Sale is much more effective when he pitches to contact like he's been doing in the past inning or so.

 

When he tries to strike everyone out, he tends to make mistakes with his fastball and then gives up homers.

Yep don't think it's a coincidence his best K year has led to a 3.5 era

I'll acknowledge his season is ending with good numbers, while also pointing out he was part of the problem the first month when they played 8 of the first 10 series vs the AL Central.

 

He's got to be better in April next year.

I'll take a slight decrease in K's if it can improve his ERA by a little bit next year.

A full run is more than a little. :)

I'd be content with a 250 K with a 3.10 ERA season for him next year.

If Sox want to contend he needs to be a top pitcher. No reason he can't get his ERA back down in the 2.3-2.6 range.

Agreed. The BABIP monster killed him this year, but he still didn't have a bad season by any means.

Less BAPIP and more the HR ball killed him

He also had a few starts where he gave up innings of 4, 5, 6 runs each.

 

Eliminate some of those innings and his ERA will go back to normal next year. I'm not worried at all about him.
