Danks’ Contract Bearable Until the Price is Right

Despite interest from the Marlins and Yankees (and possibly others), the White Sox were unable to unload lefty John Danks prior to Thursday’s non-waiver trade deadline. It seems most conceivable that neither team was willing to bite the bullet on the $28.5 million owed to Danks over the next two seasons, though his consistency and veteran presence do seem to be coveted.
