Chris sale meme
The man bigger than the meme
Chris Sale was scratched from his scheduled start on Saturday due to a “clubhouse incident” by the White Sox, in one of the most bizarre stories of the Major League Baseball season. As more information became available, it was discovered that jerseys played a part.
Sale reportedly lost his cool and threw a tantrum over the team’s throwback uniforms that were to be worn Saturday night. That wasn’t it, though. Sale allegedly felt so strongly against them that he cut up a couple of them.

Chris Torres, the founder of the Nyan Cat, has gathered an informal group of meme originators — the designers or original popularizers of meme photos — into a two-week auction of their work. Creators of memes such as Bad Luck Brian, Coughing Cat, Kitty Cat Dance, Scumbag Steve, Twerky Pepe, and others are finally finding a way to monetize the development of legitimate cultural phenomena that have been freely used for decades under the hashtag #memeconomy.
They’re mainly being hosted on Foundation, a burgeoning new crypto art and collectibles site that launched in February and has already hosted $6 million in NFT sales. I have a lot to tell about NFTs that I won’t get into here, but I thought this project was interesting and wanted to share it. Memes are, after all, internet art (sorry). They’re one-of-a-kind inventions that pumped elements of participatory and performance art into the internet’s veins. They have millions of creators in many respects, as the initial editions may have planted the seed, but each use and permutation added new strands of DNA, crafting their cultural significance upload by upload. They’ve given us the ability to express ourselves — our appetite, disgust, excitement, and lust — when words were insufficient.

This is the kind of thing that paralyzes you and puts you in a state of aesthetic restraint. It’s difficult to digest because it’s so far beyond the scope of what we’ve come to expect from baseball — indeed, from humanity in general. But let’s try to process it as a group by going through the highlights of the plot.
The tale began innocently enough: Sportsnet’s Ben Nicholson-Smith tweeted at 4:48 p.m. Central that the White Sox will start Matt Albers instead of Sale against the Tigers. With just nine days before the deadline, and Sale trade rumors circulating all day Friday, this seemed like the obvious first step toward a deal. Moments later, reports began to circulate that Sale had the flu, prompting instant suspicion — wouldn’t that be exactly the kind of ruse the White Sox would use as cover if they had pulled Sale when working out the specifics of a trade?
At 5:19 p.m., Ringer deputy editor Mallory Rubin sent a Slack message to some baseball beat staffers, explaining that she was about to see a movie and would be out of contact for the rest of the day, but that we should be prepared to cover a Sale trade if necessary. Before she turned her phone back on, here’s what happened:
Sale of the century
Of course, this caused several people to ask, “Did you ever miss a season?”

Let’s look at the intent of the “Reset” post now. Mookie Betts was traded by the Red Sox during the offseason. With these and other moves, the team is now under the luxury tax threshold for the upcoming season. But, to no one’s surprise (and this is a major “but”), the team has suffered this season without Betts (and losing ace Chris Sale to injury hasn’t helped). With a 12-23 record, Boston is in last position in the American League East.
Sure, the social media team didn’t want to swap Betts or cut salaries anywhere, but as the people in charge of receiving angry messages from fans, they’re always the ones who get the brunt of it, particularly when there’s simple bait like this miss of a tweet.
Following the tweet, fans criticized Sox ownership for prioritizing the wrong items, mentioning Betts and also bringing up the luxury tax. Fans are rightfully disappointed and critical because trading away the best players isn’t necessarily the best way to have a good season.
