The Danks, Moe, The Danks!

Remember the frigid days of last winter, when White Sox GM Kenny Williams was roundly booed by the Chicago media and by White Sox fan for trading that great future ace Brandon McCarthy to the Rangers for a nobody like John Danks? I sure do.

Handy up-to-the-minute 2007 stats, courtesy of the Palatial Baseball Blog:


Team G GS W L SV IP H R ER HR BB K ERA WHIP
Brandon McCarthy TEX 9 8 3 4 0 37.1 45 29 27 5 19 23 6.51 1.71
















John Danks CWS 6 6 2 4 0 35.1 35 17 17 6 11 28 4.33 1.30


Hmmm...maybe Williams isn't the Cook County village idiot after all.

Of course, McCarthy has plenty of time to turn things around. My point here is that it's a good idea to wait for some results to come in before trying to call a trade a success or failure. I know, that's not what punditry is about. After all, who knows more about judging baseball talent, Kenny Williams or Phillip Rogers?
