CHICAGO -- It was late in the game, under the Monday Night Lights, when Chris Sale picked off a Kansas City ball and looked for more contact.

Boom!

I know it's a couple days until the Bears open the preseason, but really, the football terminology is apt here, because without Sale, the Chicago White Sox would be getting ready for their fantasy football drafts.

With Sale, the first-place Sox are legitimate playoff contenders, gunning for life in October.
