“It was all just frustration. I’ve gone months without walking five guys… Nothing’s wrong, I just have some things that I have to clean up,” Sale spoke at a postgame press conference. “I know exactly what I have to do. I knew exactly what I had to do and that’s why I got so frustrated.”
Many professional athletes are upset behind closed doors. It is easy for players to get frustrated and competitive. Sale, who thought he was in private, blew off steam during the fourth inning against the Scranton Wilkes-Barre RailRiders.
“When I was young, I made mistakes. I’m not going to shy away from it. I acted like an idiot last night. I’ve acted like an idiot before. I’d do it in the dugout and I’ve been told over the years, ‘Hey, take it to the tunnel,'”Sale added.
“It is what it is. It’s who I am. It’s what makes me a big leaguer. It makes me good at my job. It might not be the best for the public eye, but what is? Who’s perfect?”
Sale was careful not hurt himself or others during his passionate outburst.
“I learned in college not to punch anything. And I learned very early on from a teammate of mine not to go full front kick. You never want to do it. But, when it happens, you have to do it the right way and not injure yourself or someone around you,”Continue the sale
“I was just acting like an idiot, honestly. It’s just a seven-year-old temper. Like I said, it’s not something I’m proud of. It’s not something I want to do, but like I said stuff happens.”
The The damage has been repaired, and Red Sox chief baseball officer Chaim Bloom has excused Sale’s behavior.
“Look, I’m not going to sit here and condone property damage, but he is a competitor. That’s who he is. There are plenty of guys, including somebody we all love who is going into Cooperstown later this month (David Ortiz) who has been caught on tape doing stuff like that when they’re frustrated during a ballgame,”Bloom stated on Thursday, WEEI’s appearance “The Greg Hill Show.”
“It happens, it probably happens more than people think and with guys that you might never suspect.”
Sale is expected to be more competitive as he prepares for his Red Sox debut next week.
