A Silver Lining
Chris Sale, talking about what he learned from last season, via Colleen Kane’s story in today’s Trib:
“Any time you go through something like that or something negative you always try to bring some kind of positive from it,” Sale said. “Last year made me a better pitcher, a better teammate and a better person because anyone can start throwing stuff and swearing at people and pointing fingers, but that really made me kind of grow up in a sense of knowing that these guys are giving everything they have for me and it’s just not working out.
“It’s not any single person’s fault. It’s not going to do me any good to grab someone and shake ‘em, probably because they’re bigger than me too. But you have to work together, and last year made us work together and really be closer in terms of off the field and in the clubhouse.”

Coop: Reliever Matt Lindstrom was impressive in his bullpen session today and newcomer Felipe Paulino is throwing without any restrictions and will throw in the bullpen tomorrow…More Coop: No clear cut candidate for the closer role at this point.
