Yankees have talked about John Danks; talks in early stages

The Yankees, to no one's surprise, have checked in on White Sox lefty John Danks. The Yankees, having lost four starting pitchers to injury, are seeking to upgrade their rotation even after the acquisition of Brandon McCarthy is paying off early. Danks, still only 29, is 8-6 with a 4.35 ERA. There is no evidence the sides are close to a deal and may be in only the early stages...

Indians-White Sox set to close out first half

It's uncertain if John Danks will still be with the Chicago White Sox by the end of this month. Amid the trade rumors, he'll try to continue the kind of pitching that's made him so marketable.  The left-hander seeks his sixth win in eight starts when he faces the Cleveland Indians in the final game before the All-Star break Sunday. With the White Sox (45-50) in fourth...

Danks Battles Past Control Issues as Gillaspie, Bullpen Lead White Sox to Victory

John Danks has been phenomenal in 2014. Though he’s been beat up pretty good in three starts, in 13 of his 14 starts outside of those three, he’s turned in at least what qualifies as a quality start … and plenty of times he’s been dominant. Danks Finds A Way For a pitcher like him with underwhelming stuff, hitting his spots reigns supreme, which is something that’s difficult...

The White Sox accidentally turn their fans into KKK look-a-likes

Yeah, this is really uncomfortable for everyone.On Wednesday night the White Sox thought they'd hook their fans up with free white ponchos during a rainy night in the windy city.And let's just say it turned out to be a bad look.  I would assume the next order for ponchos coming out of the White Sox will be for clear, not white.KKK rally at the ballpark? Nope -- the White...

John Danks victimized by the old ‘Cup Placed on Baseball Cap’ prank (video)

Your browser does not support iframes. Hijinks, tomfoolery and skullduggery were in play in the Chicago White Sox dugout during the team’s game against the Baltimore Orioles on Monday night, as pitcher John Danks fell victim to a tried-but-true prank that nevertheless fails to delight each and every time it is perpetrated. Yep, an unknowing […] The post John Danks victimized...

John Danks Needs to Get Ahead

Posted to White Sox PitchingChicago White Sox pitcher John Danks does not have good numbers on the 2014 season. He sits at 3-4 with a 4.90 ERA and 1.42 WHIP. While he was excellent in his last start (8IP, 3H, 0BB and 4K’s), it comes down to a very simple aspect of pitching that can help Danks. Get ahead of batters. Sounds easy enough, but it’s absolutely necessary to make a pitcher...

Danks Slow-Balling His Way To Solid Results

As our own Luke Stanczyk said after his most recent start, “John Danks has had by no means a glamorous start to the season, as his velocity is down and his command has not always been there.” But eight starts into his 2014 campaign, no matter what numbers you point to, you cannot argue the fact that the results have been there for the 29 year old southpaw. Through those eight...

Could Danks be the Yankees Number 2?

It seems pretty clearly that Yu Darvish is not going to be a Yankee. So as it stands now, the 2012 Yankees pretty much look exactly the same as the 97 win 2011 team that got bounced out of ALDS. Names have floated but nothing has gotten serious. Felix Hernandez and Gio Gonzalez would be the best choices for the Yanks but the asking price is way too high, pretty much cleaning out...
