I heard on B&B this might be a deal where it takes 1-2 full years for Danks to regain his strength.
I think the Sox should really take a step back and decide what's going to happen with this team. Danks doesn't really change the outlook that much - but overall just look at the team.
I see about 9 guys on this list
that I would expect to be gone in 2 years. Either retired, traded for prospects, or lost via free agency.
Of the top 8 money makers on this team I see about 4 who are somewhat worth the money. That's a tough list to look at. The bright spot is the 6 guys at the bottom.
