Mark Buehrle place in White Sox history

Filed under: Chicago White Sox — The Wizard @ April 3, 2010 9:03 pm

Erik Manning takes a look on how Mark Buehrle, aka The Man on the South Side, compares to other White Sox pitching greats:

… But it’s not just his background or his accomplishments that make me like the guy, I love watching him pitch. I’m a velocity freak like most people, and I’m not one who’s normally big on “crafty lefties”, but I love watching him work batters over with his less than spectacular stuff, including an 86 MPH fastball. Bob Gibson, of whom it was said “he pitches like he’s double parked” would be proud of the pace Buehrle works. Anyone who can polish off an American League opponent in about an hour is alright with me. …

Great stuff.
