White Sox, John Danks Agree To Five-Year, $65 Million Contract

Chicago White Sox general manager Kenny Williams is known for his swing-for-the-fences philosophy, but his South Siders have been suspiciously quiet following a season that saw the team majorly disappoint. Seemingly the only news out of White Sox camp this winter has been bad news. First, there was the departure of manager Ozzie Guillen to the Marlins, followed by Mark Buehrle fleeing the only team he's ever know to join his former manager in Miami. The Sox also traded popular flame-throwing reliever Sergio Santos to the Toronto Blue Jays for a bevy of prospects.

But tonight, good news comes for Sox fans. The team has agreed to a five-year, $65 million contract with John Danks. CBS' Jon Heyman has the tweets:

The fan in question is @k0na, who also tweeted that he cannot reveal his sources.
