Default Vintage Buehrle Part II

Don't mean to stir up hurt feelings, but this is pretty awesome. I usually don't watch Quick Pitch in the morning on MLB, but this was literally the first thing I saw when I turned the tv on this morning. Had to record it quickly so I could grab a screen pic later.

This one is for Little Nell....

I saw that, too. I chuckled. Who new MLB Network was reading our boards for inspiration?

I saw that too and also LOLd. Kudos for grabbing the screen shot, Brian26! Unfortunately I missed the actual segment - was it on that game we were bickering about earlier, or just a general piece on Buerhle?

It was kind of half talking about his strong start to the 2014 season (a far cry from last year's miserable start he endured in Toronto) and also his win over the Orioles Sunday afternoon...

Though, that performance against Baltimore was pretty much pure, classic Buehrle... 7 IP, 2 K, 0 BB, almost 1/2 his pitches to contact...

Dare I say once again how much I wish he never left the Sox.

I think I heard it correctly, he's got a 0.86 ERA so far. I don't expect that to last, but good for him. Edit- 2 runs in 21 IP. Wow.

Maybe Toronto will be selling in July, and the Sox will be buying?

Buehrle's 4-year contract doesn't look so stupid anymore, does it? Remember all the talk on WSI on how awful the deal was. He'll be untradeable with all the money he's owed!

Next year is already the last year of his contract. I'd hardly call him an albatross for Toronto.

In hindsight, the Sox goofed when JR told a Sox legend to go take a bigger contract elsewhere and then gave Danks a $65M contract.

Toronto beats Cleveland 5-0.

Buehrle pitches seven innings, four hits, no runs.

Buehrle's now 4-0 and lowers his ERA to 0.64.

Only fewer win than the Astros and Diamondbacks and tied with some other team.

If he puts up a top 5 Cy Young season, I think he will get some serious consideration for the Hall of Fame.

He may need to win one to get in unless he puts up a couple straight top-5 vote-getting seasons. Right now, he only has one top-5 finish for his career. I feel bad for him because he should have a much better record than he does for how he has pitched and his ERA. He hasn't had a 20-win season yet, and he probably should have had a few already (ex 2002, 2005).

Let's hope it's MB and Sale finishing 1-2 in the voting. I'd love to see Sale win it, but I'm not sure he'll get the backing to do it yet this year. I'd put money on him winning one by 2017 though with a few top-5 finishes.
