Following up: James Shields takes advantage of room for improvement

Plus: Tim Anderson has his hands full with late-inning power arms James Shields threw his best-ever start for the White Sox on Thursday. Of course, he allowed three runs over five innings yet still lowered his ERA to 11.79, so "best-ever" for Shields is a one-size-fits-most tag. As you might expect from the line -- 5 IP, 5 H, 3 R, 3 ER, 4 BB, 3 K, 0 HR -- it doesn’t answer a whole lot of questions. He addressed one problem in that he threw first-pitch strikes to 15 of 23 hitters. He worked ahead in the count far more often, setting up his changeup and curve more than he had in previous...

Abysmal James Shields, slumping Todd Frazier latest blows to White Sox

It's not like the organization's talent-acquisition engine needed even more evidence against it Saturday night would've been sad enough if James Shields were the only thing about it. Shields melted for the third time in as many starts with the White Sox, and it's special in its brutality. Roll them with the disaster start that capped his Padres career, and that leaves him without a true historical precedent. Here are Shields' game scores from his last four starts: May 31: -1 June 8: 12 June 13: 20 June 18: 8 According to Baseball-Reference.com's Play Index, there's only one other...

Indians 13, White Sox 2: James Shields spirals further

Starter takes a step in the wrong direction, which is hard to do after first two outings The Cleveland Indians had all the runs they needed before James Shields recorded an out. Shields was shellacked for a third consecutive start. The Tribe greeted him with a walk, double, single, homer for a 4-0 lead, and unlike his last start, he couldn't save even the slightest amount of face. Instead, he allowed eight runs over just 1⅔ innings, as Matt Purke was once again needed to save the meat of the bullpen from the first five innings. I'll talk about Shields in more detail -- or maybe more...
