Dunkin’ Donuts Poll: Are You Concerned About Chris Sale’s Lower Fastball Velocity?

Chris Sale had a lot of people talking about his fastball Wednesday night.

The Boston Red Sox left-hander made his final start of the regular season before the team begins their playoff run Oct. 5 at Fenway Park, with Sale getting the nod to start Game 1 of the American League Division Series.

However, during his Wednesday start, many took note of his much-lower-than-normal fastball velocity. Sale still reached into the low 90s, but he didn’t seem to have the electric heater he has become known for.

In Friday’s Dunkin’ Donuts poll question, we asked Red Sox fans if they were concerned about Sale’s fastball velocity. Check out the results in the video above.
