Rays vs. White Sox GDT 3: Welcome to the Troppa, Danks

New, 32 comments

True story.

Otto Greule Jr

John Danks, when playing away from U.S. Cellular Field, does not pitch as well. He allows fewer homers -- which makes sense, given the White Sox play in a hitter's park -- but his strikeout rate actually drops 2 points (from 19% to 17%) away from Chicago.

Figur thatout.

Here's a band I found this morning that is probably not named after John Danks, in part because they ARE ABOVE AVERAGE! (Ha!)

In all seriousness: Danks is a good pitcher. His SIERA is under 4.00 and his walk rate is bananas this year. Hopefully the Rays can Danks Theory the living Danks out of him.
