Satire~ It appears that Chris Sale’s much publicized woes with body piercings has gone from bad to worse.
After missing game 5 of the ALCS against the Houston Astros due to self described stomach “irritation” which was caused by constantly fiddling with his belly button ring. Sale is now experiencing an even more harrowing injury with one of his other body piercings.
A source close to the situation has revealed that Sale may be in danger of missing tonight’s start due to an infection caused by complications with his recently acquired nipple piercings. The source described the area in question as incredible raw and that Sale’s chest region is so sore that he can barely raise his arms above his head.
The source assured me that the Red Sox medical staff is doing everything in their power to minimize the irritation and are doing their best to keep the swelling under control.
If Sale is able to take the mound tonight, one can only compare the situation to Curt Schilling’s bloody sock game in game 6 of the 2004 ALCS against the New York Yankees.
