Sale is great, but he's great because of the lack of viable lefty SP not named Hal.
Hal is so dry and over exposed, that Sale can be refreshing to use.
We need other alternatives that are obtainable, but not vanilla.
Paxton isn't it. Glavine is too scarce. Leiter is good but we need our Guidry or even Spahn.
Lester is aweful. Fake Series cards like McKay are meh. Lodolo was effective but variety is still lacking IMHO.
agreed Lester not to good. What about Madison?
He's very recent. I haven't tried him yet, and only faced him once. Probably a great card and more viable than Sale if you need a lefty. I didn't list every lefty. Hamels is there too.
I'm a Sale owner. I use him well, but I feel so much LESS confident pitching with him this year than in the past.
Closest comparison to Sale right now might be Lefty.
I find with Sale, you need to use both fastballs on both sides of the plate.
