Crowding the Plate Podcast Episode 17: Chris Sale Slicing Jerseys

Spread the love

Joe Hojnacki and Greg Hessen feel the need to discuss Chris Sale slicing jerseys to pieces. Apparently upset with the way his throwback uniforms would affect his performance, Sale decided to go all slasher on everyone’s digs. He got himself suspended five games for his trouble. There had to have been a better method of protesting than this. Also, how did it affect his trade stock?

Also, the duo go over some trade deadline possibilities, talk about Aroldis Chapman getting dealt to the Cubs, and what certain teams should look at doing in the next couple days.

They also remember Ken Griffey Jr. and how amazing his Hall of Fame speech was.

Hosted by Joe Hojnacki and Greg Hessen, Crowding the Plate is a weekly baseball podcast here on Last Word on Sports. It aims to cover the fun, yet analytical, side of baseball once a week.

Joe Hojnacki writes about soccer for Last Word on Sports and is also co-host of the Crowding the Plate Podcast. An avid Red Sox fan, Joe idolizes Bryce Harper and feels that his fun showmanship is the way to save baseball from becoming overrun by old folks, and from dying out.

Greg Hessen is the resident Tigers fan on Crowding the Plate. As somewhat more of a traditionalist, Greg longs for the days of pitchers hitting in the American League and a landscape that doesn’t include things like bat flips and PEDs tarnishing the greatest of all games.
