Well Billy Pierce deserves to be in but Buehrle shouldn't be penalized for voters mistakes. Personally I think Pierce was better than every pitcher in his generation except for Spahn, Roberts, Feller and Paige.

I would say Buehrle and Pierce are pretty close. I think Pierce is a little better though. But again in 3 or 4 more years this might not be as close as it is now.
