08:32 AM ET 08.25 | Chicago White Sox starter Chris Sale had a rough night in Friday's 11-5 loss to the Texas Rangers. The left-hander gave up eight hits and eight runs over seven innings to fall to 9-12 on the season. But while the game was virtually meaningless for the lowly White Sox in the standings, that didn't stop Sale from taking out his frustrations on an ice chest in the dugout between innings. Based on his arm movement during the ice-chest beatdown, Sale definitely had the strength to pitch two more innings, but his erratic technique probably is what also led to his bad night on the mound.

The ice chest is the only thing that DIDN'T get a hit off of him Friday night.

MLB hitters watch tape on you before you pitch against them Chris and they have caught up with you, so it is up to you to start changing speeds on pitches to keep batters off stride. Also Chis after signing that 5 year contract for $32 million you need to let the ice chest slap you and your agent around.

He was probably frustrated because the one game where he actually got some run support is the game where he gave up so many hits.

At least one of the Sox players still has passion.

I'll bet the Ice Chest would have won if it hadn't been restrained. lol
