If he keeps up he his sub .500 record and his 3.8 ERA, he isn't a lock for anything.
Have you seen his run support? Pitiful.
Have you seen who he has pitched against? Johan/Sabathia, ect.
No wonder he doesn't win much. He hasn't given up more than 4 Runs in ANY game, and only done that twice. He goes 6 Innings every time except 2. QUALITY STARTS. That's what he does.
PLUS, if you have been actually watching his games(which I have), he has the composure of a seasoned veteran. His first major league game, in the 4th(maybe 3rd
) Inning, he gave up a 3-Run HR to Justin Morneau. That would rattle most pitchers, ecpecially rookies, but he came back out, went into the 6th and didn't allow another Run.
-John Danks has a better Opp. BA than Schilling, Sabathia and Roy Halladay.(leads all rookies)
-6.80 K/9 IP, thats 18th in the AL. (leads all rookies)
-Believe it or not, his 47.2 IP leads all rookies.
-His 3.78 ERA leads all rookies.
-His 3 Wins, lead all rookies. (Actually, tied for first, with Dustin Moseley, who is a RP for the Angels.)
Something tells me, if he keeps this up, leading all rookies in EVERY category, he WILL win ROY.
Is pushing for President Obama to pass a law requiring all citizens to be Chicago White Sox fans and make October 1st "White Sox Day" where we all dress as our favorite player. It maybe socialist, but I don't care.
