    Same. I'm glad that they won but Sale obviously should have got the dub.

    Especially because part of the argument I would have accepted for not having Sale came back out was that we're early in the season and don't want to over-tax his arm. But then you leave Kimberly in for two innings? Poor decision making, not sure of the logic.

    ^^ It was also Sale's lowest pitch count of the season. Two or three batters might have gone by before he matched his season high. FWIW, another part of the logic was that Kimbrel had been pretty much lights out (4 dominant appearances, 9K) leading up to it.
