The Boston Red Sox agreed to a trade with the Chicago White Sox to acquire left-handed ace Chris Sale.
Let that sink in for a minute, Red Sox fans.
Now, go ahead and celebrate.
Or, as Red Sox pitcher Joe Kelly suggested on Twitter shortly after FOX Sports’ Ken Rosenthal broke the news Tuesday afternoon …
OK, so it’s not exactly Kelly’s best work. But he, like many Red Sox fans, clearly is excited.
Boston reportedly shipped away a solid package of prospects that includes Yoan Moncada and Michael Kopech, but Sale is one of the best pitchers in Major League Baseball.
