Can someone please show me Mark Buehrle's stats before and after the 2003 all-star break. I can't split them for some reason at mlb.com. Thanks!

Other than the number of losses, his stats weren't much different. The perception is that he was bad in the 1st half and great in the 2nd, but that is not the case.

In reality Mark had one really bad month (May, I believe) and some bad luck.

I notice that his K:BB ratio goes from about 3:2 before the break to about 2.5:1, close to 3:1 after the break. That could have something to do with the number of losses before the break and also the perception that he was pitching "badly" before and "well" after, since his control would at least seem better.

The walks really seemed to be the problem early last year. He gave up his first walk of spring training yesterday. I would say the problem is corrected. Pencil him in for 19 wins this year.

Thank you. I drafted Buehrle very early in fantasy because I'm predicting 20 wins. He was throwing junk early in counts then getting his fastball hammered. Plus not an ounce of luck. He could've been 18-10, just like when he went 19-12 he should've been 22-9.

Here's to 20 from Zito, Oswalt and Rich Harden as well...

Those numbers are deceptive, it is easy to miss that Buehrle allowed a ton of unearned runs in the first half that don't show up in his ERA.
