Default Danks Has an Opening

Gavin Floyd 3.2 innings, 9 hits, 2 walks and 6 runs, all earned. Looks like #5 starter is now wide open for Danks.

That should be 6 runs. A little worse.

I think if you are reading between the lines, no, this race is not wide open. With only one standard Sox starter (Pierzinski) this was an effort to see how a guy without his good breaking ball (in AZ) would get out of jams. Clearly, the kid was frustrated, but not wholly ineffective, 3Ks 2 BBs, stranded five runners in scoring position and gave up only two doubles. Danks may perform better than Floyd, but Texas has their AAA team in against Danks.

When the Sox have five extra base hits and the opposition only two, this doesn't look like a total failure during AZ ST with high heat.

Besides the chump umpire with the worst Questec rating ever seen (less than 75% accurate for one game) is calling the plate.

If it's up to Ozzie, I think he chooses Danks hands down despite the quality of batters faced. Floyd was pitching for his life today (as if her were an mlb starter) with more on the line than anyone accept Danks and he blew it. Danks' pitches seem to be working out just fine in the AZ heat.

Ozzie has already raved about Danks to the press. I think todays game (Floyd vs. Danks) is just going to be another indicator to Ozzie that Danks is his guy.

I'm sure this has been covered here before, but does Floyd have any minor league options left? If not, looking like he'll be the long man out of the pen.

Aardsma has one left too. He and Floyd are going to have to pick it up a bit in order to make this club.

Masset and Danks are outpitching them so far.

It's asinine to say the Sox have no 5th starter based on a couple of weeks of spring training. Using the same logic we also have no #2, #3, or #4 starter. If it were June 13, he may have a point. But it's not.

No wonder this place implodes after every Sox loss. It's March ****ing 13 and people are already declaring that the Sox have no plausible option for the #5 starter. It amazes me how many folks here love to rip on the Tribune, yet spew the same **** the newspaper does. But somehow the Tribune are misinformed idiots (which most of their writers are) yet dozens of folks make the same exact arguments here that the Tribune does in their rag.
