Well, it’s not entirely difficult to see why Sale gets all of the love. For starters, for the vast majority of his career, Chris Sale has been a literal strike out machine. He has a career 10.17 K/9 and he had an MLB leading 11.82 K/9 in 2015. Compare that to Quintana’s 7.37 career K/9 and his career best 8.00 K/9 in 2014 coming into the 2016 season. But secondly, and most importantly, the White Sox refuse to win for Jose Quintana. While Chris Sale has 9 wins as of the writing of this article, Quintana only has 5. But it’s not just this year. Throughout Jose Quintana’s tenure with the Pale Hose, the team refuses to score runs when he’s on the mound and win games he’s started. As of mid-April, Quintana had a record of 34-34 despite a 116 ERA+, and it hasn't gotten much better since. You would think with a low ERA and low win total that Jose Quintana just doesn’t go deep into games allowing him to earn the "W" much more unlikely. However, that is untrue as he’s pitched over 200 innings in each of the past three seasons.
