Danks is turning out to be a nice suprise. Good job all around it seemed. I had to watch the game on "game cast" at work. Good call finally by Ozzie and not using 1 pitcher for 1 batter... especially with a DH...

Stuck at work following on Gameday...but still a big YEEEEEESSSSSSSSSSSS on the win. Sounds like Danks was stellar today, and some nice clutch hits...

I blasted the McCarthy trade when it happened, and my God how big of an idiot do I look like right now?

Absolutely nothing wrong with that win. We were hitting the ball hard (unfortunately we were hitting it at people until the sixth). We got two out base hits, played aggressively on the basepaths, hit for power the other way. And most importantly we conserved the bullpen. Let's get the night cap.

I'm off to have some beers and then catch the nightcap!

Here's to the bats and Johnny DANKs!

Danks looked fabulous today as well as our offense. As I said in the gameday thread, THIS is the spark we've been waiting for all year. Beautifully done. I'm super happy, my remote controls are all in tact. Great day :]

Yes indeed we did.

I guess Texas can develop pitching, but they can trade it too. Like Chris Young before him, Danks is looking great in another uniform!

BTW, here's hoping the Rangers give up on Kameron Lowe too. I'd like him in a trade for say, Heath Phillips. Stupid Texas.

Awesome hitting today as well. Hopefully, a sign of things to come!

Let's get 'em tonight too!

Great win! That 7 out of the last 9 now.

Let's keep rolling - no letting up. Nice to see signs of life from our comatose offense. Not exactly a "breakout" game for them - but Dye, Paulie (HR), and Crede each had a hit. AJ looks like he's out of his slump.

Danks is turning out to be a nice suprise.

Not really a surprise - he was one of the top 3 ranked LH SP in the minors last year.

How many teams are there in baseball with a better 5th starter than Danks?

The same way racoons do. When there is food laying around, Ronnie will find a way like all other natural scavengers.

Danks would have struck out 10 if not for a tea cup zone by the ump.


Great win!!!

Great job by Danks.
Good move by Ozzie leaving in Thornton with NY only having lefty ph's on the bench.

Maybe the slumbering dinosaur that has been our 0-ffense this year is finally waking up. :praying:

A great win. Go out and get another one by supporting Jose. Looks like the hitting may be turning and hopefully help in the form of Hall and especially Thome will be here soon. Still plenty of firepower available right here, right now.

danks seemed to be throwing harder today -93mph- than earlier and his breaking stuff was in the zone.. ump was squeezing the rookie,but he just keeps plugging and pitching almost buehrle-quick..

AJ really had a nice AB -he actually was patient and worked the count to 3-1 and boom.. he is swinging for the fences but at least he actually connects once in awhile.. good to see tadahito ,JD,PK,Joe, and erstad all contribute.

now, break out tonite with a little more run support for jose..sweep this baby.,

Just got back from the game, heading back out in a few for Game 2.

Danks looked great and the crowd was nice considering the short notice. Rongey interviewed Danks on the post-game show immediately after the game and he stated that he was going to ask Ozzie to let him pitch Sunday v. the Cubs because he has been really looking forward to pitch in that series.

I missed this morning's game because I had a class. I had to stop at a library on the way home, but on my way out, I checked the score on my laptop to see that the Sox had won.

It must burn Yankees fans that their team was stifled by a 1-4 rookie when they had Mussina going. I have no doubt that this thread would have three times the number of posts if the White Sox had lost to a 1-4 rookie

Yankees fans, like most baseball fans, including many at WSI have underestimated the White Sox. And I, for that matter, am pleased that I have underestimated John Danks.

ESPN.. we all know how horrible it is.

Highlights of the game on Sportscenter after PTI: ALL YANKEES. Look at yankee hit a homer. Look at yankee make a popup. Finally, they had to show AJP hit the leading Homer and Rob "steal" home.

Bristol stinks.. lets burn it down.

This surprises you...why?

Because they had ONE game to report on. They couldnt show PK's HR? or Joe's single? or any positive for the Sox before they took the lead. (even the Danks K was shown more as "Yankee messes up" than Danks is a AL ROY candidate.)

Caught the tail end of a good interview with Danks on Chicago Tribune Live, he raved/talked about how Buehrle was his number one guy to go with anything, that's cool to here. He said Coop has helped him with remembering to stay tall, but also they've been working on the cutter, and he mentioned how he knows how much that helped Buerhle.

Just got back from the game. The bats are starting to put it together, and Danks was awesome. He got a little shaky in the 6th, but he pulled it together nicely. I was impressed with the crowd, too. I went to the second game of the LAA series, and the crowd was dead. This was a lot better overall.

Yeah, just when you thought we had some reason to be slightly optimistic about our offense, we go out and have an awful showing like we did tonight.

Never thought I would ever say that seeing PK and Dye come up to bat with runners would be my cue to turn away.

Those two guys right there are the top candidates for me on why our offense sucks this year so far.

Unreal.

Yeah, I was at Game 2. I thought we were gonna win that one. Jose was good. Then, the Yankees were up by 2. That is not a lot at all. This is all I pretty much saw. Guys are on 1st and 2nd, one or none outs, pop up, then a strike out, and then a ground out. I was really mad! Let's just WIN this series today!!!
