2001 Review

WOW! That's all you can say about Mark Buehrle. When spring training opened up all the talk centered around Kip Wells and Jon Garland. Sox manager Jerry Manuel had Buehrle penciled in the bullpen. However, Garland and Wells struggled and Manuel decided to give the young lefty a shot. 

Once he got that shot he never looked back. In April just like a good portion of the team Buehrle was awful. Mark made 5 starts and had a 5.52 era to go along with a 1-3 record. In May - August Mark racked up 11 wins and his era was under 3.00 every month. 

Like most young pitchers Buehrle appeared to run out of gas as the season came to a close. In September, Mark won 3 of 5 starts but allowed 18 runs, the most since he allowed 19 in April. Mark made one start in October and ended the year with a win.

2002 WSI Wiz predicts!
The Wiz knew Buehrle was the most-talented left-hander on the team last year.  Sure, the Wiz  didn't predict it, but they aren't paying me enough for this job.  The Wiz knows Buehrle will become the rock in Manuel's rotation, garner an all-star selection, and several Cy Young votes, including one belonging to a prominent Chicago sportswriter.  The Wiz foresees Burly-mon getting in the face of one of the team's veterans for a comment made in the press.

In spite of all this, the Wiz predicts Kerry Wood will still get the lion's share of attention from Chicago's media.
