Mark Buehrle’s Place in History is Secure

This isn’t how it was supposed to end for Mark Buehrle. Pitching on two days rest against Tampa in the season finale, the veteran southpaw was just 2 innings shy of 200 for the 15th consecutive season.  45 pitches, 8 unearned runs, and a pair of costly errors behind him later, and his shot at history was over.  Last season, Buehrle was just the 7th pitcher since 1901 to record...

What does Mark Buehrle bring to the postseason?

For much of the first half of the 2015 season, Mark Buehrle was the only sure thing in the Toronto Blue Jays rotation. Aaron Sanchez and Drew Hutchison struggled, R.A. Dickey sought consistency, Marcus Stroman was injured, Marco Estrada had not yet fully emerged, and David Price still pitched for the Detroit Tigers. Buehrle was the veteran leader of the staff, and posted a very solid...
