Harrell apparently has been terrible at home this season. Mitch Williams said Danks has no fastball and cannot find his release point to locate his pitches. The idea that Harrell outdueled Danks is annoying, as is the contract Danks was given to "replace" Buehrle.
I don't blame the Sox for giving Danks that contract, but they were pretty blatantly non-descript about the injury. It's not an injury anyone has every effectively come back from. The most successful "comeback" from it was Rich Harden, who never had the surgery others did and simply spent his career on and off the DL between stints of effectiveness.
