I don't think Jones had a loss all of last season. He's got three in the first 31 games this year. That's what happens when you walk people. He doesn't seem to be as effective when he comes out for a second inning of work. He better shore that up. There are times where the team needs him to provide more than just one inning.
Harvey is obviously pretty good. The Sox aren't the first team he has shut down this year.
That said, every pitcher the Sox face shuts them down, so it's becoming increasingly difficult to tell the difference between a well-pitched game by the opponent and just another poor showing by Sox hitters.
I'm starting to think it's going to be a pretty long year. When this team slumps, it slumps forever.
