Don Cooper: John Danks will need to pitch like Mark Buehrle

From the Easier Said Than Done Files:

"John is going to have to pitch a little more like a Buehrle," Cooper said. "That would be the best example here because they all know Buehrle. You know Buehrle at one time was throwing at 88-89 (mph). The last three or four years with us he was at 82-83 but still but still found the way to do it. That is what I think (Danks) needs to do."

I don't think direct comparisons to one of the great command artists of our time is going to make John Danks' rehab process any easier.
