JerseyGate: Sale Cuts Loose During Batting Practice

CoFYLhNWIAEWNuf.jpg-large

Wow, who knew a pair of scissors, Chris Sale and a throw back jersey from ’76 would transform into the biggest day in sports this season, and not in a good way. Saturday Sale (the scheduled starter) was sent home from the ballpark after a non-physical incident in the clubhouse during batting practice.

That “incident” in short was Sale refusing to wear a throwback jersey, ultimately cutting up 25 of them…WTF.

In a statement released by the White Sox Manager, Rich Hahn, he addressed the situation to be under-further investigation by the club with no additional comment until it is complete.

Despite a statement released by the White Sox,  and serval reporters giving us the play by play, it didn’t take long for thousands of Tweets to flood the internet. By the time I got off work, Chris Sale had 65K Tweets, with I can guarantee all started with a quick brainstorm using the words: cutting, scissors, jerseys and Sale.

It is hard to see this kind of behavior by such a beloved Chicagoan and role-model for young baseball players everywhere, that doesn’t change the fact that I might retweet a few Tweets that made my 7-dollar bottle of wine come out my nose.
