White Sox morning roundup

From yesterday:

John Danks still hasn't pitched like the ace the Sox expected when they signed him to that 65 million deal in the offseason. The lefty allowed seven runs in seven innings on nine hits with one walk and one strikeout as the White Sox lost 7-5 to Cleveland. While the one walk is a positive sign, Danks allowed two home runs, giving him seven longballs allowed in six starts this season. Here's what Danks had to say after the game:

While Danks' struggles have been concerning, three other starters have stepped up this season by striking out more batters than they've allowed hits. Chris Kamka takes a look at where Chris Sale, Jake Peavy and Gavin Floyd could end up in franchise history in that regard.

Back to Danks, Jim dwelled on his contract and recent issues, which date back to September of last year. The comparison he draws will probably make you cringe, but it's an interesting one nonetheless.

Around the division: Let's all really, really, really hope Mariano Rivera's career didn't end last night in Kansas City, the Royals must hate or just severely undervalue Johnny Giovatella (but they beat the Yankees anyway) and Chris Perez explained his confrontation with Alex Rios.
