#1 being able to officially practice probably more than anythin von dasg234 08.05.2019 00:11

CHICAGO -- The Chicago White Sox were set to wear throwback uniforms. Chris Sale had other ideas.The White Sox suspended their ace five days without pay for destroying collared throwback uniforms the team was scheduled to wear.The team announced the punishment on Sunday after Sale was scratched from his scheduled start and sent home the previous night.The suspension comes to $250,000 of his $9.15 million salary. He was also fined about $12,700 -- the cost of the destroyed jerseys -- according to a person familiar with the penalty. The person spoke on the condition of anonymity because no statements were authorized.Obviously were all extremely disappointed that we have to deal with this issue at this time both from the standpoint of the club as well as Chris perspective, general manager Rick Hahn said. Its unfortunate that it has become this level of an issue and potential distraction taking away from what were trying to accomplish on the field.Sale was not expected at the ballpark on Sunday. He is eligible to return Thursday against the crosstown Cubs at Wrigley Field, though Hahn would not say if the left-hander would start that game.The Major League Baseball Players Association declined comment, spokesman Greg Bouris said. Sale could ask the union to file a grievance.FanRag Sports first reported Sale was protesting the 1976-style jerseys, which were navy and sported unusual collars on a hot and humid night.Sale then cut up an unknown number of jerseys before the game and was told to leave the stadium. With not enough usable 1976 jerseys available, the White Sox wore white throwback uniforms from the 1983 season.The incident comes with the White Sox in a tailspin after a 23-10 start and Sales name circulating in trade rumors.The actions or behaviors of the last 24 hours does not change in any aspect, any respect, our belief that Chris Sale can help this club win a championship and win multiple championships, Hahn said. It does not move the needle one iota in terms of his value to this club, his value to any other club that may be interested in his services or the likelihood of him being moved or kept whatsoever. None of that stuff is impacted at all by these events.The incident does raise some questions in general about throwback uniforms, how players feel about them and whether they should be forced to wear jerseys that arent comfortable -- particularly starting pitchers.If Im playing with Chris Sale I want him to pitch, Colorado Rockies outfielder Carlos Gonzalez said. If he wants to play with no shirt, we play with no shirt. I just want him to pitch.New York Yankees pitcher Chasen Shreve said: Pitchers like their stuff. Me, it doesnt bother me, but for him, obviously it does. Its crazy. I dont think Im that bad.White Sox pitcher James Shields wouldnt comment on whether players should be made to wear throwback jerseys. But he did say: I dont really mind the throwbacks. I havent had any issues with that.Manager Robin Ventura said players occasionally wearing uniforms they dont like comes with the job.But you wear it, he said. If you want to rip it after, you can rip it up after. Ive seen guys rip it up after.Hahn said throwback uniforms the White Sox wore last season were a bit baggy so the team took measurements in spring training so they would fit the players better. He also mentioned the money the uniforms generate.Part of the element of being in position to win a championship is the revenue side of the operation and respect for their reasonable requests to increase revenue, Hahn said.This wasnt the first flare-up involving the 27-year-old Sale, who is known for his competitive streak and strict training regimen.He was openly critical of team executive Ken Williams during spring training when he said Drake LaRoche, the son of teammate Adam LaRoche, would no longer be allowed in the clubhouse. Adam LaRoche retired as a result, and Sale hung the LaRoches jerseys in his locker.He was also suspended five games by Major League Baseball last season for his role in a brawl at Kansas City that started with a flare-up between teammate Adam Eaton and the Royals Yordano Ventura. Sale went to the Royals clubhouse after he got tossed and was seen pounding on the door.Hahn said the punishment was unrelated to previous incidents. He also said the two had a very candid meeting in his office with Sale after the pitcher had some exchanges with staff members in the clubhouse and that both expressed remorse. They spoke again on Sunday.At that point last night Chris stood by his actions, Hahn said. Part of what makes Chris great, part of what makes him elite, is his passion and commitment. Weve seen that sometimes spill out from between the white lines. Yesterday was one of those instances and it unfortunately led to events that required discipline.---AP Baseball Writer Ronald Blum in New York and AP Sports Writer Pat Graham in Denver contributed to this report.Yeezy Boost China Wholesale .

Woodson said during a radio interview Thursday that the Knicks Carmelo Anthony doesnt get the same calls as other superstars.TUSCALOOSA, Ala. -- Alabama and Auburn dispatched their usual pre-Iron Bowl FCS opponents as expected.Now, the top-ranked Crimson Tide and No. 16 Auburn can focus on what really matters in this state: The Iron Bowl. `Bama has moved on from a lackluster performance against Chattanooga (still a 31-3 victory), and the Tigers 55-0 win over Alabama A&M was hardly indicative of what theyll face Saturday at Bryant-Denny Stadium.Ditto for Alabama, which shouldnt have any issues getting up for this one.Its pretty easy because its a rivalry game, the biggest one of the year, you could say, Tide defensive lineman Dalvin Tomlinson said. I still feel like some of my teammates who were here when we lost to Auburn a couple of years ago still feel the pain of losing to them. Its pretty easy to focus up just because we dont want to have that feeling again.Alabama (11-0, 7-0 Southeastern Conference, No. 1 CFP) has won the past two meetings and 23 games in a row. Auburn (8-3, 5-2) No. 15) is battling injuries to quarterback Sean White (throwing shoulder) and tailback Kamryn Pettway (left leg) that kept both out of the Alabama A&M game. Pettway also didnt play in a loss to Georgia that kept this from being a showdown for the SEC West title.Alabama has already clinched that and will face Florida in the SEC championship game.Senior Jeremy Johnson replaced White against Alabama A&M, passing for a touchdown and rushing for two more. Coach Gus Malzahn didnt offer any indication of Whites status for the Iron Bowl after the game.ddddddddddddI think at this point its just being able to officially practice probably more than anything, Malzahn said. Well see where thats at. Im not ready to predict how hes going to feel in a day or two, or how hes going to do.For the most part, players from both teams skirted questions about the Iron Bowl after their respective games.Not Tide receiver Gehrig Dieter, who will experience his first after transferring from Bowling Green.I feel like everyone in the country kind of watches that game growing up, said Dieter, who caught two 1-yard touchdown passes against Chattanooga. I always watched it growing up, and its exciting that I have the chance to play in it. Its pretty exciting, as a team, what weve been doing this year, so we will come out next game and have an intensity about us.The general consensus among coach Nick Saban and Alabama players was that that intensity wasnt up to par in the latest game. The Tide fell behind early and led by a modest 14-3 at halftime.Tomlinson said players had already addressed the issues in the locker room before Saban came in wanting to know, Do you believe me now?He was angry, because Sabans always angry, Tomlinson said. He just got on everybody and made sure we were all focused.---More AP college football: www.collegefootball.ap.org and https://twitter.com/AP-Top25 ' ' '
