An interview with John Danks
White Sox starter talks about trying to keep the season alive
A lot is going to be made of the fact that you're in a must win situation again for the second time in a week, and, you know, is it the same or is this one a completely different animal? I mean, the results the same the season ends if you don't perform but is this a completely different thing in your mind?JOHN DANKS: No, this is the exact same thing as what we had on Tuesday. You know, Tuesday, you know, was a playoff game for us. This is the same thing. So win and we get a Game Four and get to get Gavin in there. Lose and, you know, we go home. So, you know, we're going to approach it like we have the last three must win games we've had, and, you know, we'll see how it goes. But definitely going to try to approach it the same way. John, what kind of problems does that Tampa Bay line up present to you? Obviously you're going to keep an eye on anybody on first base right? Is that a lot of it? JOHN DANKS: Yeah, I mean, I think they're very similar to Minnesota in that, you know, they have guys that do all the small things. They'll bunt, they'll hit and run, they'll steal. Middle of the line up you got to be careful. You know, guys can hit the ball out of the ballpark. So, you know, really Minnesota and Tampa Bay are very similar and, you know, hopefully we can pitch the same way like we did the other day.
