Finally, another Buehrle realist. I don't understand how he got this good reputation. Just because he stayed healthy for a few years and posted mediocre numbers I guess. If you're looking for a 4th starter, he's your man. If you're looking for a 3rd starter, like you were, you would have been better off going with someone with higher upside.
The pick won't kill your team by any means though, at least you know what you're going to get from him. Now your mission should be to steal your "real" 3rd starter later in the draft. Focus on guys with big upsides like Bonderman or Sabathia. Good luck!
And yeah, that's one seriously potent offense. Great draft so far.
