Yet another new argument. Missing the first turn is not the same as missing the first month.
Probably missing the first month when it's possible he could miss a lot longer is not a reason to attack someone and call them a liar. I don't appreciate it and it is very personal.

I think someone needs to start a separate 'Crazy Uninformed Yelling About John Danks' thread. It's really messing up the 'Crazy Uninformed Yelling about PECOTA' thread.

Being incorrect does not equate to being a liar.

It's not personal. You just won't admit you are currently incorrect, which seems to be frustrating people/logic.
I am incorrect in that I didn't know he started throwing off a mound two days ago. I am not incorrect in that it's likely he could miss a month of the year. I'm wrong if I said he's missing the first month of the year. But i didn't say that. Only that he probably would. Based on PLENTY.

Oh *****. Where did someone, ANYONE, say " munch/blandman, you're a liar?". Seriously, this **** is getting real old, real fast.

Still waiting for the link that states he's likely to miss the first month. You said it was all over the media.

I believe the original statement accused me of making things up. And it's pretty clear that it came from somewhere.

There are articles that say half the year. There are articles that say they don't know how much time. All mention it. Even the damn team website gives 15 days (if you know anything about baseball rules).

I accused him of making up the story of likely to miss a month, and if that's how he translated the piece he quoted, that is exactly what he did.
