What is up with Buerhle?

Postby jdh » Sun May 11, 2003 5:35 pm

I s anyone else getting really frustrated with Buerhle. He has lost like 5 straight starts, has a horrible WHIP and look at his line for today so far. 4 innings, 8 hits, 2 homers, 6 walks. What is wrong with him and will he turn it around or should I try to trade him away before his value further deteriorates?

I would move him if you get value. Finesse pitchers always worry me.

After about two of his losses I noticed something different about him, dont' know what, but it just didn't seem right. So I traded him and Cabrera and got Sheffield and Rollins in return and then was able to pick up Meche off of waivers for Buehrle's spot. I was quite happy with that move.

I just shipped him off, along with Kerry "141 pitch count" Wood and Magglio Ordonez for Kevin Brown, Mulder, and Manny Ramirez. Good deal?

thats a great deal...mulder is lights out and shows no signs of slowing down with 8 innings and only 3 hits given up today.....manny and magglio is a wash so its in your favor for sure.

Nice deal. Buehrle was the worst guy of the 6.

I really don't think Buerhle is as bad as you guys make him out to be. 19 wins last year and 16 the year before with good ERAs both years. Plus, he's only 24. Just give him a little time.
