For those of you who stopped watching long ago because things got ugly, I’ll recap...

Danks brothers team up to lead White Sox past Texas

From time to time Jordan Danks asks his brother John if he’s done any more “brother interviews.” Although it’s rare that two brothers find their way onto the same big-league team the Danks duo don’t figure to have anything new to say when asked about playing with each other for the umpteenth time. But that changed Sunday when Jordan hit a go-ahead home run in the fourth...

White Sox rally to beat Astros 4-3 behind Danks' late hit
