Danks did not pitch badly enough to lose today. The defense and poor execution at the plate were the main culprits.

You are 100% correct. I just felt like posting a meathead comment, as my confidence in his arsenal of belt high fastballs, isn't very high.

I mean, he did let 8 of the 22 batters he faced get on over the 14 outs he was on the mound. He limited the damage but it's not like that's an acceptable level of production.

At least 3 of those hitters would not have reached with solid defense behind him.

True, but if there was any confidence in his ability he would have pitched more than 4.2IP and/or it wouldn't have taken him 87 pitches to make 14 outs. if Sale or Quintana were in that spot they'd be left in for that situation.

It's to the point where the expectations for him are so low we're patting him on the back for not making it out of the fifth and having a WHIP of 1.71 for the game.

I was thinking they might use this week's off days to "reset" the rotation to:

Sale
Shark
Quintana, etc.

Not sure why they didn't do it- no more off days for a while-
