John Danks

Postby hett2333 » Sun May 29, 2011 4:29 pm

After getting blasted today, Mr John Danks has fallen to 0-8 and is sporting a 5.25 era. As a White Sox fan and a Danks owner, I get the feeling today will be his last start for awhile. Ozzie wants to get away from his six man rotation, and I think he will plug Philip Humber in over Danks. Anyone else things he's heading to the bullpen, or do you think he is staying put in the rotation?

Eh... I know Danks has been shaky, and today especially, but imo he's been too good for too long to be the one getting the hook.

If it were to happen, I'd expect it to be purely temporary.

As if this clown has the nerve to chirp Bautista after getting lit up for like 9 runs.

IMO he's the best starter on that team, his job should not be in jeopardy...(I do not own him on any of my teams either)

“I just told him to run the bases. He was out there acting like a f—ing clown. I told him to run the bases. He’s a good player. He’s had a great year-and-a-half, no doubt, he’s been one of the best hitters in the league. He was out there acting like he’s Babe Ruth or something. That’s horses—, I think.”

“He isn’t that good to be acting like he needs to hit every ball out of the ballpark. That’s just the way I feel. I have pride. I really do. I’ve had a pretty crappy year to this point but I have pride still and I’m not going to let him sit out there and show me up like that.”

“I was upset at missing a pitch, at myself,” Bautista said. “If he took it the wrong way, I’m sorry, but I’m not here to make him feel good.

“It really doesn’t matter to me what he thought. What I’m not going to allow is when I’m running by him, him yelling at me again, so I yelled back at him.”


Sounds like somebody is feeling the pressure of losing his starting job. :-b

Best pitcher in terms of what? He's winless for one thing..for another, 46K over 70.1 IP isn't what one would figure to get from him either...9 K's in last 5 starts, yucky!

I can't really cut him in the league I have him in, deep 14 teamer and pitching is threadbare on the wire..but not sure I will be starting him next time either at this point.

I think this last start will give Ozzie the excuse to yank him. I don't think he takes his next turn in the rotation.

I bet they come up with a nagging injury so they can put him on the DL. Then bring him back in 2 weeks for a fresh start.

I'm holding onto him in a couple leagues given his track record, just don't plan on starting him for a while.
