    White Sox South

    Post by rmapasad on Tue Dec 13, 2016 4:44 am

    Not sure why Atlanta has a thing for ex-White Sox players,  but this is now their SIXTH ex-WS free agent signed in the last 12 months (counting AJ, Flowers, Beckham, Bonafacio, Cleto).


    "Braves signed LHP John Danks to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.
    Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports says the lefty will receive $1.5 million if he makes the team.He has posted a 4.92 ERA in 97 starts dating back to the beginning of 2012, as he simply hasn't been the same pitcher since his shoulder issues cropped up. There doesn't appear to be room for him in the Braves' rotation, but he might stick around as a long reliever."

    When the Sox trade Frazier, they can bring back Fan Favorite Gordon Beckham to play 3B.

    THINGS DID NOT START GOING DOWN HILL FOR THE 2016 WHITE SOX UNTIL THEY RELEASED JOHN DANKS


    THE FACT THAT DANKS NEVER, EVER HAD RELIEF APPEARANCE SPEAKS TO THE STUPIDITY OF THE ORGANIZATION.  BASEBALL HISTORY IS LITTERED WITH FAILED STARTERS TURNING INTO RELIABLE RELIEVERS.  SOMETIMES ALL THE WAY UP TO CLOSER!!!!!


    JUST LOOK AT THE CLOWN PARADE THRU THE PITCHING STAFF SOX FANS HAD TO ENDURE LAST SUMMER.  EACH AND EVERY ONE, THE KARK THOUGHT


    GEEZ, DANKS COULD HAVE DONE THAT

    Maybe Danks refused to go to the bullpen, hence the release.

    Maybe he was never asked

    BTW, it wasn't just last year.  Each and every one of the 247 games John Danks has ever appeared in has been a start.

    I doubt a rookie has any say in the matter.  I also think a guy returning from injury would have been open to suggestions

    More like the sox brain trust has trouble thinking outside the box

    ABOUT TIME YOU GAVE ME CREDIT FOR THE DANKS THE CLOSER IDEA


    BUT LET ME BE CLEAR


    THE POINT WAS NEVER THAT DANKS WOULD HAVE RESURRECTED HIMSELF IN THE BULLPEN.


    THE POINT IS THAT AFTER DANKS RELEASE WE ENDURED AN ENDLESS PARADE OF STIFFS THRU THE PITCHING STAFF


    DANISH, CARROLL, SMITH, MINAYA, PURKE


    NAMES I BET EVEN ROGER DOESN'T RECOGNIZE.


    NOT TO MENTION THE RUSHING OF CARSON FULMER 8 MISERABLE APPEARANCES


    THEN THERE IS THE CLOWN THAT REPLACED DANKS IN THE ROTATION, JAMES SHIELDS.  JUST ONE MORE START AND HE WOULD HAVE GOTTEN HIS 20TH LOSS.


    BTW, SHIELDS IS AN IDEAL CANDIDATE FOR THE FAILED STARTER TURNED CLOSER.  MAYBE HE CAN BE THE NEW AGE DUSTIN HERMANSON AND THE SOX COULD DUMP HIS ASS BEFORE THE ARM FALLS COMPLETELY OFF

    I always gave you credit for the Danks as CLOSER brainstorm.

    HOWIE then commented that was some GREAT THINKING OUTSIDE THE BOX!!


    ROTFLMFAO!!

    Being the Think Tank for SFOD does not require Einstein type intelligence.
