Chris Sale Ignoring Cy Young Talk

Chicago White Sox pitcher Chris Sale (17-6, 2.78 ERA) is one of the leading candidates for this year's American League Cy Young, but he tells Dan Hayes of Comcast Sports Net that awards are not on his mind with his team in the midst of a close race for the AL Central title:

"I don’t pay attention to anything like that," Sale said. "You start paying attention to things like that you get a little selfish and what’s really important slips away. I’m here for this team. I’m not trying to win any awards or anything like that. The only award I want is the big shiny trophy at the end."

Sale is tied with Jered Weaver for second in the AL with 17 wins. He's third in the league in ERA and seventh in the league in strikeouts.
