Chicago White Sox pitcher Chris Sale has set himself up for ridicule from the fans after getting suspended for cutting up a specially designed throwback uniform he did not particularly care for. On Tuesday night, for the second time in two days, he was the butt of a jersey-related joke from the stands as White Sox fans continue to bring the laughs at his expense.

On Monday it was a White Sox fan walking to his seat wearing a Sale jersey with duct tape placed all over to suggest covering up rips and tears from a scissor tirade. Not bad, but we have a new leader in the clubhouse, brought to us by this brilliant attempt at humor with a fan wearing a retro jersey that is a tad too small. This fan feels Sale’s angst.

Sale was scratched from his scheduled start Saturday night against the Detroit Tigers following an incident in the clubhouse. Ken Rosenthal reported Sale had requested not to have the team wear their throwback uniforms because they were not as comfortable as the regular uniforms. Not happy with the decision to continue to wear the uniforms, Sale apparently lost it and went on a cutting spree to destroy the team’s throwback uniforms. Sale was later suspended for five games by the team.

Chicago has always been known for being the home to some terrific humor. Let’s hope the White Sox fans keep the laughs coming.
