Tough call. McDowell pitched a lot more innings but Buehrle had four seasons with a higher ERA+ than McDowell's best season and was the best pitcher on a World Series champion team.

Sale '13: 142 ERA+ 196 IP
I'd say he still has alittle work to do to usurp Buehrle's mantle.
Is there not a sort of bloodshed when the conscience is wounded? Through this wound a man's real manhood and immortality flow out, and he bleeds to an everlasting death. I see this blood flowing now...
