2000- 37 K's in 51.1 innings
2001-126 K's in 221.1 innings
2002-134 K's in 239 innings
2003-119 K's in 230.1 innings
2004-96 K's in 119.1 innings


Look at this, through the mid point of this season Mark has 96 K's. and his HIGHEST season total was 134 in 2002, and last year he only had 119, what did he change?

Well in the 2003 season after he was winless after 10 games i believe he moved to the right side of the rubber and was back to normal after that, it could be carrying over to now still.

He started throwing the cutter more often this year. He's also using his change up more effictively.

More proof he didn't deserve to go to the ASG...

I know he's signed for a few years, but now may be the right time to reward him with a more generous and longer-term contract. Tear up the old one and sign him to a 5-year deal. He's becoming a special pitcher, and he is a borderline, budding superstar (lack of A-S appearance nonwithstanding).


Pitching wins championships. Buehrle should anchor the Sox rotation for years to come.

I agree that Buehrle should get rewarded for being such a great pitcher. However, as you said, he just signed a new contract, and I think the Sox will have more pressing concerns in the upcoming off season than signing Buehrle to another new contract. Filling the holes at catcher and centerfield. Filling probably 2 spots in the rotation will be an issue too. Just my opinion.

Whatever it is, it's bound to be a good thing. The most reliable predictor of future success by a pitcher is Ks.

The knock on MB has always been his low K totals and his high workload. Well, his K's are going up and he has shown that the workload has little effect on his effectiveness and health.

MB is probably never going to be a Cy Young winner. Maybe never an all-star. But he takes the ball every fifth day and gives the team a chance to win. He has given his team more chances to win this year than Kerry WOod and Prior combined. And not being a power pitcher, he is less likely to break down than these other guys.

Also, I think the high run support is direct reflection of his personality and how quick he works on the mound. He seems like a fun guy to be around, and his team plays a little bit harder for him. And because he doesn't leave them in the field for long innings, they are better prepared at the plate.

Buehrle went to the 2002 All Star game, didn't he?

And he should have been going to this year's too. I would have preferred Esteban's arm got a little rest this week.
