The Boston Red Sox and ace pitcher Chris Sale agreed to a 5-year, $145 million contract extension.  It keeps the left-hander with the team through the 2024 season.

The 29-year-old has battled minor injuries throughout his career, but had himself a very strong season last year.  He was 12-4 record with a 2.11 ERA in 158 innings.

Talk about cashing in on a strong season.  Sale is a very good pitcher, but had issues with velocity last season.

It could be a blip on the radar or a sign of things to come.  If it’s a sign of things to come then Boston just flushed a ton of money.
