John Danks had plenty to say about the challenge he faces against the Rays on Sunday. Four words, however, summed it up quite well.
"Here we are again," Danks said after Friday night's White Sox loss in Game 2 of their American League Division Series.
Once again, Danks will take the mound at U.S. Cellular Field in a potential elimination game, trying to keep his team's postseason hopes alive. The atmosphere will be pretty similar, with the White Sox calling for fans to wear black for another "blackout" atmosphere.
Even the opponent will seem pretty similar to Danks, who sees a lot of the same opportunistic, pesky, speedy style in the Rays that he did in the Twins last Tuesday.
