White Sox Quotes of the Day: John Danks, Doug Laumann, Greg Walker

New, 78 comments

John Danks has changed his starting point on the mound hoping to correct his recent high-pitch-count problems:

"The only thing we've done is I've moved over on the rubber. We noticed when I miss, it's more times than not arm side, so we've moved over to the third-base (side) to maybe counter that."
BTW, Kenny says Sisco's move to in the starting rotation in AAA Charlotte would be permanent.

Doug Laumann says the Sox will continue to avoid drafting Boras' clients:

"It handcuffs us a little bit, but at the same time there are other organizations that will deal with his people, which pushes down some other guys that we are able to deal with."
*****

And Greg Walker's words of wisdom (first link):

"Believe it or not, it could get worse."

And look inside for a Brian Anderson update and some more trade rumors.

Mark Gonzalez says Brian Anderson has been "coping with an assortment of injuries":

Anderson, who went 2-for-3 Sunday, missed Saturday's doubleheader because of a concussion suffered while trying to make a diving catch. An MRI a few weeks ago revealed rotator cuff tendinitis in his right shoulder.

And as SSH2005 mentioned earlier the Mets are interested in Jose Contreras:

[Newark Star-Ledger]

According to an official with one of the teams involved, the Mets also have asked the White Sox about former Yankees right-hander Jose Contreras, who is signed through 2009. The official, who asked not to be identified because the deals he was talking about are not done, said the Mets would be more likely to give up top minor-league talent for Contreras than they would for Buehrle.
mlbtraderumors.com thinks "Contreras would handle a return to New York well" and that "Lastings Milledge would be more than enough for Contreras." mlbtraderumors.com also reports that the White Sox have been scouting Yankees' Double-A pitchers Ian Kennedy and Joba Chamberlain as the Yankees may be interested in Buehrle and Dye.
