Dewon Day, John Danks Thoughts

For those that don't know, the Sox picked up Amos Dewon Day this winter in the Rule IV Draft.  He was a 26-year old reliever who, IIRC, got talked up a bit by Sox brass and Phil Rogers.

He has been brilliant in his short time at Birmingham.  In just five-and-two-thirds, Day has struck out 16.  That's not a typo -- he has struck out 16.  Looks like just two possible outs have not been 'made' via the strikeout.

We bash the Sox scouts a lot -- or at least I tend to do so -- but hopefully they've found another bullpen gem here.  

Oh, and sample size issues apply here, but so far, so good.

-------------------------

Finally, any thoughts on Danks' start yesterday?  //shameless plug coming I was out seeing Grindhouse for the second time (go see it!).  Looks like he held his own again, but getting a little deeper than that...

  • How hard was his fastball?
  • Was he commanding his changeup?
  • How was his control, both in and out of the zone?
  • Did he flash that plus breaking ball yet?  I haven't seen him throw a 'plus' breaking pitch yet, although I've only seen about two of his starts (Spring Training and regular season combined).
