Blyleven had no chance of getting in 10-15 years ago but the saber lovers made a good argument helping him finally get in. 10-15 years in the future will more tha likely be even more saber heavy.
But, as explained, Buehrle is really not that much of a saber guy. Set aside wins completely, and his numbers still don't come close.

I think that if you mentioned to a fan of any other team in the majors that you thought Mark Buehrle could be a HOF guy, they'd think you were crazy.
Ridiculousness across all sports:

(1) "You have no valid opinion because you never played the game."
(2) "Stats are irrelevant. This guy just doesn't know how to win."
