White Sox morning roundup

From yesterday:

John Danks allowed three runs in two innings in a 6-2 loss to the Angels. Gordon Beckham did get a pair of hits from the No. 2 spot, though, a day after having two pretty poor at-bats. Fornelli has some good quick hits on Tuesday's action.

Danks, who will almost certainly be the team's opening day starter, tried to explain his rough outing:

In the game, the White Sox shifted their infield for Albert Pujols, which is refreshing to see.

Jesse Crain and Danks also talked about the differences between Robin Ventura and his staff and Ozzie Guillen and his staff -- one of which they didn't mention could be a curbing of intentional walks.

Going back to Monday's spring training opener, Jim ran down some positives and negatives while James offered up some thoughts as well.

Around the division: Rick Porcello says Jose Reyes is "obviously a good hitter," Kevin Slowey had a typical Kevin Slowey outing, Royals prospect Jake Odorizzi was roughed up and former White Sox great Jeff Gray gave up two runs but earned a save for Minnesota.
