These things happen. The White Sox just can't seem to help but string together poor offensive showings these (early) days. David Price was on tonight, keeping the Sox considerably off-balance after an all-fastball first inning, and keeping the seven Sox baserunners seemingly miles from home. Edwin Jackson wasn't terrible, but struggled to locate his pitches early on, and it cost him. There's a lot of blame to go around for this one, though the defense was adequate (if mostly untested; Castro caught Fuld stealing second, which was refreshing). Shutouts are never fun, and a good bat showing in the near future would do a lot to snag potential jumpers from the ledge. Oh, and if this were a two word mini recap, I would simply say "Sam Fuld."
