Names of Pitchers the Sox Have Lost To

Here is a list of starting pitchers that have recorded wins against the Sox. I'll also post their record and ERA.

Justin Masterson 5-0, 2.25 ERA
Jered Weaver 6-1, 1.39 ERA
Tyler Chatwood 2-1, 4.94 ERA
Dan Haren 4-2, 1.76 ERA
David Price 3-3, 3.95 ERA
James Shields 2-1, 2.14 ERA
Wade David 3-2, 2.77 ERA
Justin Verlander 2-3, 3.75 ERA
Brad Penny 2-3 5.23 ERA
Max Scherzer 4-0 3.82 ERA
Bartolo Colon 2-1, 3.00 ERA
CC Sabathia 2-1, 2.68 ERA
Jake Arrieta 3-1, 5.01 ERA
Chris Tillman 1-2, 5.25 ERA
Zach Britton 5-1, 2.63 ERA
Francisco Liriano 2-4, 6.61 ERA (No Hitter)
Nick Blackburn 2-4, 4.41 ERA

If you take out wins against the Sox, the opposing starters have a 33-30 record. Take out the good pitchers (Haren, Sabathia, Weaver, and Shields) and the starters are 23-25.

Here are the starters the White Sox have beaten.

Fausto Carmona 3-3, 4.43 ERA
Carlos Carrasco 1-1, 4.97 ERA
David Price 3-3, 3.95 ERA
Jeff Niemann 1-2, 5.60 ERA
Jeff Niemann 1-2, 5.60 ERA (2 out of 3 Sox wins over a 12 day span were against Niemann)
A.J. Burnett 4-1, 3.93 ERA
Jeremy Guthrie 1-4, 3.00 ERA.

7 wins against starters. Only 1 has an ERA that's any good. 2 more have ERA's just under 4. And the other 4 wins are against pitchers that aren't good.

The Sox have a 7-17 record against opposing starters.

These are the guys you spend hours scouting. The guys you make the adjustments to face. The guys you get to face 3 or 4 times a game. And yet the Sox cannot figure out any of them.

Only Carmona and Niemann have the Sox truly cracked.

Pathetic and embarrassing. And I'm a fan. Imagine how Greg Walker must feel. Nevermind, he probably feels fine.
