I think all this Sale stuff deserves it's own thread... I think we can summarize all this is the culmination of a complete organizational failure. It started last year when Shark and Cooper didn't get along and Shark decided to ignore Cooper's direction and do whatever. Sale sees this and follow suit and starts doing whatever he wants out on the mound. Fatherboy saga happens, combination of a front office that let that dumb hick weirdo trot around his wiener kid for a year and a pussy manager that no one respects, Sale goes off on team and specifically Kenny. Old senile Jerry just acts like nothing happened. Now Sale as a hothead feels empowered that whenever he's pissed he can do whatever and fuck it all. Again, this ownership group and front office hired a weak manager who can't control a locker room (or manage in game as well) and Sale feels like he can cut up jerseys he doesn't want to wear. Basically Sale is an asshole but the team basically brought this on themselves with overall incompetence that starts with having fucking Robin Ventura as a manager for five seasons. What organization would insist to a guy that didn't even want the job in the first place that he take it as a favor to them. And they only hired him because he's the anti Ozzie. Quiet company man who won't cause controversy. Ironically though it's his weak manager style that has caused controversy for this team. At this point you have to trade Sale IMO. Otherwise the team is admitting they are letting Sale do whatever the hell he wants because they feel they need him to draw fans. Attendance is pretty shitty anyway so I don't know why they care if they are 25th or 30th in attendance, doesn't really make much of a difference. Fuck it, blow it all up cocksuckers.
