I'd be willing to bet he doesn't reach either of those marks.


If he wins one out of two of these, you wear a Barbie avatar for a week. Otherwise, I do. deal?

I don't think he reaches it, either. Unfortunately, I've already got more bets out there than I can keep track of, but my confidence level is high enough that I'd be willing to make the wager.

When the weather heats up he's gonna start giving up a lot of HRs and that ERA will climb over 4. He is rosterable for sure but I still see him as a matchup guy and not an every day guy.

Didn't he work on a new cutter this offseason? Perhaps that new pitch is helping him set up his other pitches better.

For a week? You're obviously not very confident about the bet. :-b

I'd bet against Danks finishing the season with an ERA below 4.00 and 15 wins.

He did, and it's "sick" when it's on....I see the makings of a very crafy lefty...but again, he is young, and the sample size is small...

I am not much of a believer either, but he has the Jays on Friday. Toronto is only hitting 0.199 vs lefties so far ... worst mark in the AL.
