View Full Version : Found Out Buerhle's Problem

He didn't have Sandy Alomar Jr. behind the plate for him. Seriously, it could very well be the problem. Burly seems so confident and awesome on teh mound with Sandy behind the plate. This could have very well been a problem for Mark. We'll see in 5 days though.

I thought about that too, but I didn't know how much difference it would make. I was happy to see Sandy in the lineup, things just seem to go better with him in there (despite his should-have-been-error).

Nice thought, but I'd have to say that Sandy isn't that much of a difference. The past few starts, Buehrle has been back to the old ways, and he said that it had to do with mechanics. He wasn't getting the cutter in on guys like he used to. He finally moved to the right side of the rubber, and he's now getting his pitches where he wants them. He's saying that fixing that little mechanical error has been helping him. I think he's golden with Olivo or Alomar catching.
