Buehrle a HOF player?

Any time you have to preface a statement with "If so and so does so and so for the next 8 years", it's just not a conversation worth having at that point, in my opinion. Maybe in five years it'll be a reasonable discussion, but right now there's more players than you can count who, if they keep their production up for the better part of the next decade, could qualify for this conversation. Most won't.

I'm just saying, given his accomplishments thus far, and another 100-130 wins or so over the next 8-10 years he has to be considered a HOF type player. He obviously isn't there yet, but getting there is easily in the realm of possibility.



NO bias here at all, give me a freakin break.

Buehrle: 133 Wins, 0 seasons with a sub 3.00 ERA, 0 20 Win seasons, 0 Cy Young awards, 4 All-Star appearances, 1 World Series title, 0 World Series MVP.

No.. Buehrle isn't a HOF player..

Buehrle isn't even in the discussion for the HOF. He has never been considered as a dominant pitcher of his generation. He is a very good pitcher, but not close to the best by any measure.

I dont see how, I bet he gets good numbers...
but would you consider him one of, if not the best pitcher of his time?

my ridiculous scenario:
one game on the line who do you pick? Buehrle or...
Santana, Halladay, Webb, Clemens, Carpenter, Oswalt, Pedro, Johnson ect...
id take over him (over his career on average)
how about guys like CC, Lincecum, Haren...idunno. I know

Id put him in the tier below that.
Hes a very good player and any team would be glad to have him, but hes not even the top of the top of his generation (much less all time)

of course this is my own unscientific opinion

I didn't read the whole thread, so I hope I'm not repeating what someone else has already said, but no, Buehrle is not a HOF player.

He pitched a great game yesterday. Let him have his moment without exaggerating his accomplishment. He's a Hall of Famer on my Fantasy team ;-D

Amen to that. Let him enjoy the moment, and lets not get carried away with it. This is a debate for many years in the future.

That White Sox team was very good, but to say the best ever is definitely getting carried away again. So they dominated the post season, that could have as much to do with there not being much competition that year... Point is, it doesn't even belong in this conversation.

He is not a HoF'er right now, but I think he will get in the White Sox HoF without a doubt.

Having said that, if he were to pitch another no hitter, would that make his case better? I'm just curious as to how much power pitching multiple no hitters has whne it comes to the HoF.
