White Sox Fan Doctors Chris Sale Jersey to Honor Sale’s Epic Jersey Cutting Tantrum (Pic)
Chris Sale is one of the best pitchers in baseball. However, on Saturday night, the Chicago White Sox scratched his scheduled start, sent him home, and suspended him for five days.
Why? Well, the White Sox were supposed to wear some pretty stupid 1976 throwback uniforms (like these) on Saturday. But Sale said they were uncomfortable, and that the team was putting PR and jersey sales above winning. So after confronting someone in the front office about the issue, he took matters into his own hands and cut the jerseys up with a knife.
Not a joke: Source says Sale blowup was because he didn’t want to wear throwbacks, so he cut the jerseys up so no one could wear them.

Of course, destroying other people’s property is illegal and wrong. But you still have to love this story. It’s the stuff legends are made of. Twenty years from now, guys who play for the Sox now are going to be telling rookies about the time Chris Sale ripped up 25 jerseys with his bare hands, set them on fire with a blow torch, and then put the fire out by pissing on it.
But what do White Sox fans think about Sale’s tantrum? Well, the guy who taped up his Chris Sale jersey on Monday certainly got a kick out of it:
