I'd rather have Danks than Wood. Woods upside is nothing spectacular and Danks has shown he can be excellent. If Dunn/Rios decide to play this year he should start to get run support too.

Yeah I would drop Travis Wood for Danks right now, Danks is proven and has put up 200+ IP the last two years. So his ERA should definitely come down. You could probably still use Morse on offense since he has been hitting so well lately, so I wouldnt drop him just yet.

Definitely drop Travis Wood and pick up John Danks here. Danks is clearly off to a terrible start, but he is a very good pitcher and will absolutely turn things around. Wood is just mediocre at best without much upside.

More importantly DO NOT DROP Morse! Will he keep up this pace...no but I think he is settling in on a 30HR season. I had Danks and dropped him, I've always been a fan but Chicago is screwing big time with the rotation. Throwing six guys gives the pitcher a day off but it looks like it has just messed up the pulse of the pitching staff. Also, Humber has pitched well and even though it's a long shot could bump danks out of the rotation when they go back to 5, just a thought.
