Im sorry this got off on a MR strategy tangent - that never was my intention - just using an example.
If you think that's how Buehrle will pitch at home, don't pitch him at home. His overall numbers help a LOT more than a couple crappy MR's combined.
He'll put up 16 W and a 3.70 ERA over the course of the season. I don't care if it's a 5.00 ERA in day games, 7.00 ERA on Sundays, if it's 3.70 overall that's what matters. If you want to pick and choose his starts and think that'll make him more valuable, then do that.
