    White Sox and Chris Sale Agree on 5 Year Deal

    It was on CSN earlier and it's all over twitter.

    I am not even sure what a price would be right now. Sager you have any idea as to what would be a good starting point?

    Might be wise to wait till the end of this year and see how his arm holds up...

    Clay Bucholz and Trevor Cahill's extension would probably be a base starting point. I would see something like this

    5yr/$35.75M with options in '18 worth $15M and '19 worth $17M

    '13- $750K
    '14- $3.5M
    '15- $7.5M
    '16- $11M
    '17- $13M
    '18- $15M option $1M buyout
    '19- $17M option $1.5M buyout

    The fact of the matter is, when looking at young pitchers who have signed extensions during their final year before arbitration, Buchholz and Cahill are good comparisons, but the fact is that Sale has only been a starter for 1 year. That will hurt him a bit. But this would be great for the Sox if they can lock him up.

    This is what I would do, I don't know that the Sox would get both options on the deal, but I think it would be close to that.

    Even if the two option years are for 20M that is still a deal you sign. The chance at locking an ace for 7 years and less than 100M is too good too pass up!

    Looks like a few of the White Sox players are backing an extension for Sale to beat writers. Check Scott Merkin's twitter.

    Merkin had a few quotes from Danks and Konerko.

    #WhiteSox sign Sale to five-year, $32.5 million extension.
    read there's 2 option seasons, as well.

    nvm, that includes those options. 5 year, 32.5 with a chance to go up to 60.
