Well Billy Pierce deserves to be in but Buehrle shouldn't be penalized for voters mistakes. Personally I think Pierce was better than every pitcher in his generation except for Spahn, Roberts, Feller and Paige.

Billy Pierce 18 seasons
211wins, 3.27era, 3306ip, 1999k, 119era+, 53.1war
Mark Buehrle 14 seasons
185wins, 3.83era, 2855ip, 1644k, 118era+,55.2war

I would say Buehrle and Pierce are pretty close. I think Pierce is a little better though. But again in 3 or 4 more years this might not be as close as it is now.
