Today we gush some more about Chris Sale, Sandy Leon continues to make his case and we don’t panic (yet) about Pablo Sandoval.

We’re not even close to done unboxing Chris Sale’s magical Red Sox debut. What makes him so effective? (Darren Hartwell; NESN)

Not everyone found Sale’s debut easy to watch, least of all old friends from the South Side of Chicago. (Daryl Van Schouwer; Chicago Sun Times)

As great as Sale was in his debut, the game itself showed that it takes more than one great player to win games. (Alex Speier; Boston Globe)

One of those things is a Sandy Leon walkoff. After a quick start (SMALL SAMPLE SIZE ALERT), is he set up to be the starting catcher all year? (Chad Finn; Boston.com)

Even if the first two games haven’t given much indication to support it, Pablo Sandoval could still be a pleasant surprise in 2017. (Rich Levine; Boston.com)

You can never have too many prospect rankings lists. You’ll notice a familiar pattern in this one. (Ryan Hannable; WEEI)

When teams win World Series they give stuff out to fans. Who gives the most? Who gives the least? The answers may surprise you. (Frank Firke; The Hardball Times)
