    Mark Buehrle

    It's way early, but the guy is off to a fantastic start to the season. Looking at his body of work, is he a potential hall of famer to you? I have never thought of him as a HOF pitcher, but he has been consistent production wise, is never really hurt, good solid pitcher. He has solid mechanics, so he should still be able to pitch effectively a few more years. What does he need to do from here on out to be considered?

    He would need a few more good years, but he does have a 55.7 career rWAR.

    never really had a great peak,but guess there's something to be said for usually being above average throughout a career....i never thought of him as one,but i wouldnt complain if it happened(especially he'll probably have hof career war when he retires)

    Don't think the numbers are there. He's had a very good, yet unspectacular, career. The most impressive part of him is 200+ innings every year since 2001 till now. That doesn't get you into the hall though.

    How many actually vote based on metrics like rWAR though? these dinosaurs vote based on wins and losses and ERA,

    He's a good, solid pitcher, but not one I think as one of the best of all-time.

    Mark Buehrle belongs in the hall of very good. Not the hall of fame.

    That's not really true anymore, it's getting better.

    If some freak occurrence happens, and Buehrle has a Cy Young season (it won't happen), then he'd be getting closer to Hall worthy. When you look at all of the pitchers that have played from 2001-2014, he's one of the most accomplished already.

    At some point this year he's going to have a few games where he gets knocked around. To be honest, I don't know how he went 7 scoreless yesterday with the number of balls he threw.

    I just don't think his career ERA will ever be low enough for the hall.

    I find the Galvine comparison interesting, their peripherals and career averages surprisingly aren't all that different. If Buehrle continues to pitch well for another 5-6 years he could be right there with him. I bet not many people would've thought he was in the same ballpark as Glavine without looking up the numbers.

    Buehrle one of my all time favorites being a White Sox fan and with 3-4 more years could be in the discussion, but not sure I see him pitching passed this contract. He's always said he wants to retire early. He almost retired then the marlins blew him away with their offer.

    He's a very good pitcher I agree but I doubt he ever gets to the Hall of Fame.
    Favourite Teams:

    Boston Red Sox: 49-62, games this week vs. Cardinals (3), Angels (3)
    Indianapolis Colts: Good draft and off-season so far.
    Looking for new NBA team to cheer for
    Ottawa Senators: 37-31-14, season over, free agency begins this week.
