Chris Sale jokingly blames belly button ring for ALCS hospitalization

Chris Sale

Chris Sale pulled a fast one on the media this weekend.

On Saturday, Sale blamed a belly button ring for causing irritation and putting him in the hospital, subsequently keeping him from starting Game 5 of the ALCS.

Sale did not appear to be joking when he said this, though he later told a teammate he would try to pull a huge practical joke.

The Red Sox had chalked Sale’s absence up to a “stomach illness.”

He’s apparently good to go for Game 1 of the World Series, and we assume the team will ask him to stay away from belly button rings until the season is over, at the very least.
