Mark Buehrle and the Value of Working Quickly

My regard for Mark Buehrle is growing. We often don’t fully appreciate people or things while we still have access to them. Buehrle quietly slipped into retirement prior to last season after a remarkable career during which he struck out batters at well below league-average rates, possessed a sub-90 mph fastball for much of his career, and yet accumulated 52 WAR and a 215-160 record...

The Last* of Mark Buehrle

It’s over. Maybe. Mark Buehrle has told reporters this offseason that he is “not planning on playing next season but is not ready to officially announce retirement,” which is a sort of confusing follow-up to the rumors we heard in October that the 36-year-old veteran starter was planning to retire. If Buehrle does wind up pitching in 2016, it sounds like the only team that could...

Report: Mark Buehrle will either retire or pitch for Cardinals

So Mark Buehrle Wants To Pitch For The Cardinals

Are we finally drawing near an end to the longest flirtation in MLB history? The Toronto Sun is reporting (?) that Blue Jays free agent pitcher Mark Buehrle will either pitch for the Cardinals in 2016 or take his toys and go home: Come April, unless someone comes over the hill, the Jays will start with Stroman, Estrada, Dickey, Sanchez and Hutchison. They have made 395 lifetime starts...

What Would It Take For The Blue Jays To Re-Sign Mark Buehrle?

What will it take for the Toronto Blue Jays to convince veteran pitcher and pending free agent Mark Buehrle to keep perfecting his craft north of the border next season? Buehrle is having arguably one of the best seasons in his 16-year career as his contract is set to expire at seasons end. Buehrle has hinted about retirement and some prognosticators predict the 36-year old may...

Buehrle drank beer during World Series game he pitched

By Darryn Albert Baseball players have been known to let themselves go in the clubhouse on occasion and pop open a cold one, especially on days when they’re not in the lineup. From the mythical stories of Babe Ruth hitting 714 home runs on a steady diet of hot dogs and beer to the more recent tales of players like Jon Lester and also Roger Clemens and Jason Giambi enjoying a brew...

Toronto Blue Jays: Mark Buehrle’s still got it

On Wednesday, Mark Buehrle pitched a complete game shutout against the Washington Nationals, allowing only six hits and one walk. In his 206th career Major League win, he made very quick work of one of baseball’s best offenses, throwing only 93 pitches in a game that lasted less than two and a half hours. It was Buehrle’s first shutout since he did it against the Houston Astros on...

Off-Season Decisions: Mark Buehrle

Mark Buehrle set a pretty historic milestone yesterday in his second year as a member of the Toronto Blue Jays.

A remarkable feat for Buehrle who had an up and down season for...
