Go easy on John Danks, he's rusty - Lineups 5/24

I don’t expect much from John Danks. In fact, I expect a fair amount of struggles to hit the strike zone or miss bats or hit 90 mph, all of it mediated by the Marlins inability to make the ball go particularly far when they hit it with a bat.

I’ve spilled sad/hopeful words on this already and am strapped for time. Plus, you’ve already left work anyway.

For tonight, I plan on camping out by the bullpen early and making a lame joke to Danks about missing this weather while he warms up.
