What can Chris Sale expect in his first postseason start?

What can Chris Sale expect in his first postseason start?

Ron Darling remembers the way his first warmup pitch zoomed out of his hand that day at Shea Stadium in 1986. David Cones first thought is of how the nerves made his legs feel heavy at Dodger Stadium in 1988. CC Sabathia realized quickly how thoroughly unprepared he was for that 2001 start in Seattle against a team that had won 116 games.

I was 21 years old, man, Sabathia said thinking back to his first playoff start. Nothing prepares you for that.

Its a feeling thats hard to describe, said Darling, TBS analyst for the National League playoffs. Its complete and utter joy and ecstasy on one part " and just cold-hearted fear on the other. Its weird.

In his eight seasons in the major leagues, Chris Sale has experienced almost everything the game can offer. Hes pitched as a starter and reliever, in an intense media market and a smaller one, as an up-and-coming prospect and as an established No. 1. Hes started the last two All-Star Games for the American League.
