Chris Sale wants accountability for umpires after rough outing

Larry Brown Sports

The New York Yankees beat up Boston starter Chris Sale on Saturday as the Red Sox fell to a 9-2 loss. Compounding Sale’s aggravation was home plate umpire Mike Estabrook’s strike zone.

Sale felt that he was getting squeezed for much of the day, and was actually ejected for arguing about the strike zone as he was being pulled from the game. Data showed that, at least in some cases, Sale had a point.

After the game, Sale owned up to pitching poorly, but suggested that umpires who make mistakes should be held more accountable as players and coaches are.
