    Except Buerhle has a huge advantage in terms of consistency and reliability

    I'm not too familiar with his advanced metrics, but eye test, I say no. I love the dude but he's never been dominant enough in my opinion. Then again if he ends up with insane longevity or a cy young that would change the calculus big time.

    Then again maybe he should get in because of how quick he moves along

    He has crazy longevity. I hope he makes it.

    Buehrle hurt his case just like Mussina by retiring sooner than he had to.
