I'm not saying he's going into the HOF, but after 19 years, he surely would garner >10% of the vote.
Especially in Buehrle's era. He's never been a top 5 pitcher but all of these top 5 pitchers have all fizzled out, Buehrle just keeps going. I agree with the poster who pointed out that he would never want a guy like Buehrle to start a big game but I sure would want a guy like Buehrle on my team for 16 or 17 years.
