A finesse pitcher with a fastball is not the same as a power pitcher with a slider or traditional curveball.


If you can't comprehend that, I'm glad you stopped reading. You're a waste of time if you don't get that.


His last start against the angels he had 11 fastballs go for 98.4 MPH


His slider is consistenly 77-79 MPH

His changeup is consistently 85-88 mph.

Just for context, a REAL power pitcher like Eovaldi, his lowest speed slider of the season is FASTER than Sale's FASTEST slider of the season.

He's been interviewed about his lack of velocity early in the season and has said himself he considers himself a finesse pitcher with a good fastball and not the other way around, a power pitcher with an amazing finesse slider.

This has also been his best pitch for 95% of his career and he will tell you that.

Scott Boras represents free-agent pitchers Dallas Keuchel, Hyun-Jin Ryu, Stephen Strasburg and Gerrit Cole.

Somehow I dont think this guy gets to represent such top dollar talent by charging lower commission fees.......

You could make the arguement that his client list is so extensive, that it represents a conflict of interest.
