Editor's Note: At the season's one-month mark, ESPN baseball analyst Tom Candiotti answers two key pitcher questions.

White Sox starter Esteban Loaiza, who is 5-0 with a league-leading 1.25 ERA. I don't how anyone could have predicted he would be unbeaten in the first month of the season. The right-hander has been a big boost for the White Sox, especially considering he's their No. 4 starter.
