I'm a big Mark Buehrle fan, but my HoF criteria for a pitcher is pretty simple. If you had a must-win game and could pick from any pitcher in baseball, would he be in your Top 5?

If he pitches five more years of 200-inning ball, I would assume he would still be starting somewhat effectively (not relegated to the bullpen). That would be a total of 19 years in the league. Not many pitchers last 19 years.

I'm not saying he's going into the HOF, but after 19 years, he surely would garner >10% of the vote.

Especially in Buehrle's era. He's never been a top 5 pitcher but all of these top 5 pitchers have all fizzled out, Buehrle just keeps going. I agree with the poster who pointed out that he would never want a guy like Buehrle to start a big game but I sure would want a guy like Buehrle on my team for 16 or 17 years.

Congratulations to Burls, he has now pitched 200 innings with double-digit wins in 13 straight years. Interestingly, he's become a lot more of a strikeout pitcher this year. And I agree that if he pitches another five or six years at his normal rate, he will probably get a few hall of fame votes but that's it.
