While in the middle of his perfect game, Mark was talking about it in the dugout!

"Guys were like, 'What are you doing?" [Buehrle] said. "I didn't care. It's not that big of a deal."

Buehrle-mon is awesome!!!!

I can't believe he was talking about it during the game. I was afraid to talk about it in my living room!

Not to hijack the thread, but this was in the article too:

The other big blow in the inning was delivered by Valentin, whose 21st homer leaves him four shy of joining Cal Ripken Jr. and Alex Rodriguez (http://sports.espn.go.com/mlb/players/profile?statsId=5275) as the only shortstops to hit 25 or more homers in five straight seasons.

Way to go Jose! And big props to Buehrle!!!

He's such a damn gamer it makes me crazy. He gets up for big games. All the hub-ub about the big bad Indians who should be in 1st if they had a 'pen and he flat out shuts them down. He might not have your overpowering, typical "ace" stuff, but he gets outs and he puts up zeros. You subtract a few bad outings and he's having a cy young year, run support or no run support.

On another note, I hate to look ahead, but that series against the Twins mon/tues/weds is going to be electric....

It's not just a couple outings... Try a couple innings.. Two first innings where his head didn't seem to be in the game to be exact... @ home vs the Yanks and @ Montreal... 12ER in the first innings of those games, subtract those innings, and the whole season is a different story.

His ERA subtracting those two innings would be 3.14

His ERA subtracting those two innings would be 3.14 Don't forget the slugfest vs the Phillies. Buehrle settled down after the 2nd inning.

Good calls Cheat and ChiWhiteSox. I knew it was only a few bad starts, but I forgot they were all due to bad innings.

He also told the team not to go out and hurt yourself trying to make a great catch or play to protect the perfect game. As long as he gets the win he doesn't care. NOW THAT IS A TEAM PLAYER!!
