2. The Indians won’t own Chris Sale this time around
In 57.1 innings against the Cleveland Indians, he is 2-4 with a 4.71 ERA with 63 strikeouts, so he does have a losing record against the Indians.
Last year against the Indians, Sale was 0-4.
I saw no more of that trend for Sale against the Indians. This season, Sale might be at his best. He’s 2-0 with a 1.76 ERA. In those two starts, he has allowed three earned runs, two walks and nine hits but has struck out 14 batters.
This year will be much different for Sale against the Indians.
