Imagine piles of confetti everywhere in the White Sox clubhouse.

Wait. Those are tiny, slivered baseball cards. And bits of sliced-up envelopes.

First, the throwback jerseys came under attack.

What if a volatile hurler protests all the fan mail, too? It could happen, so hide the scissors!

At last count, the always-amazing www.sportscollectors.net success scoreboard showed 49 recorded by-mail successes from Chris Sale out of 163 tries. However, the last recorded response came in 2015.

If you hear from the pitcher this year, hope that your autograph comes back in one piece.

    I must admit that I had no idea who this guy is. I will assume he is a current player making far more than he is worth. Now I understand that many people seeking autographs are doing so only because they are hoping to make a profit by selling the autograph. Fans are not necessarily “entitled” to autographs. However, players are not entitled to behave rudely. There are many players who treat the game and its fans with respect. Let’s focus on them.
