Buehrle, Garland or another pitcher?

anyone else let our aces get their rest

the AL can win homefield w/o us, although it does make it tougher

I'd rather have our pitchers get the rest, but that's not likely happening. I'm asking who you think is most deserving of the honor.

Ah, its only an inning or two. The joy of seeing a Sox player out there to start the game is worth it to me. My vote is for Buerhle.

In case anyone was wondering, if the rotation goes as it has been, To start the all-star game, Garland would be pitching on 4 days rest (no big deal for a couple innings). Buehrle would be on 3 days rest. But there are three off days between now and then (not counting today) so I suppose its possible the rotation could get juggled a bit by then.

I voted for Buehrle... not necessarilly just for what he's done this year (which is really amazing) but what he's done over his career. He deserves the start. Garland should pitch second.

With the way the All-Star game goes...I think the pitchers will only throw 1 inning...2 max. I don't see any problem with it. Let the guys bask in their glory. These guys are White Sox team first players, they wouldn't jeopardize what's for the good of the team just to get some more individual glory at the AS game.

Buehrle... unless anyone has any inside dope, I would guess his influence on Garland has been underestimated, despite it being reported otherwise... meaning that Buehrle is a force both on the mound & in the SOX clubhouse... representing the team with the best record in MLB as the #1 starter & deserving the honor of starting the AS game... *catching my breath* :D:

Lets not forget that the winner of the ASG wins home field in the WS. Maybe MB & JG can help the team by pitching in the ASG!

MB without a doubt

Buehrle's gotta have the best winning percentage in the league and his ERA is sick. He's been snubbed a couple of times in the past, it's time he got his dues.

Both should definitely be on the team and I think at this point there's almost no doubt they will be.

Buehrle, considering the utter SICKNESS in his delivery, as well as what he's done since becoming a starting pitcher.

Buehrle got snubbed last year for ELo. Of course we know it's because Torre wanted to see him before the trade.

I'm of the "let them get their rest" school. We have bigger fish to fry than the All-Star game.

Going by stats. Halladay deserves to start the All-Star game.

ERA:
1. Rogers - 2.46
2. Buehrle - 2.48
3. Halladay - 2.51
4. Colon - 2.99
5. C.Young - 3.16

WHIP:
1. Santana - 0.93
2. Halladay - 0.95
3. Buehrle - 1.03
4. Garland - 1.09
5. Colon - 1.16

OBA:
1. Santana - .241
2. Halladay - .259
3. Buehrle - .267
4. Garland - .285
5. Colon - .291

Wins:
1. Garland - 12
2. Halladay - 11
3. Buehrle - 9
3. Colon - 9
3. Rogers - 9
3. Bonderman - 9

IP:
1. Halladay - 122.0
2. Buehrle - 116.0
3. Santana - 107.0
4. R.Johnson - 103.0
5. Bonderman - 102.2

Ks:
1. Santana - 124
2. R.Johnson - 94
3. Halladay - 91
4. Bonderman - 82
5. Clement - 78

CG:
1. Halladay - 5
2. R.Johnson - 3
3. Buehrle - 2
3. Garland - 2
3. Colon - 2

SHO:
1. Garland - 2
1. Halladay - 2
1. Mussina - 2
4. Buehrle - 1
4. Rogers - 1
4. Santana - 1

Halladay is easily the starter of the All-Star game as of right now, Buehrle is back to back with him in 6 categories. So it wouldn't be hard for Buehrle to pass Halladay. One bad outing by Halladay and a great outing by Buehrle and suddenly Buehrle passes him.

Johan Santana is having a much better season than advertised, his WHIP, OBA and SO numbers are insane. The defense behind him has been **** which translates to the high ERA and Win numbers.

I don't know why people insist on Garland starting it, his numbers are not all that great. He has the most wins (by 1 over Halladay) and his WHIP and OBA numbers are decent (Halladay is far ahead of him in both).

Rogers is the same case as Garland but instead of Wins he has ERA going for him. After his miserable start last night his ERA has skyrocketed from 1.98 all the way up to 2.46, which pretty much sqrews him here considering his high OBA and WHIP.

Bartolo Colon is having an extremely underrated season. He started slow but has picked it up since. His ERA is under 3 now and his WHIP and OBA numbers are good (though both are a bit lower than Garland's). He now has 9 Wins and should be a candidate.

Pecking Order:
1. Halladay
2. Buehrle
3. Garland
4. Colon
5. Rogers
-----------------
6. Santana

Maybe they should give BMac a spot start.
