Fangraphs’ Eric Seidman gauges Mark Buehrle free-agent prospects

Filed under: Chicago White Sox — The Wizard @ September 12, 2011 1:22 pm

Eric Seidman:

Buehrle 2011: 4.8 K/9, 1.9 BB/9, 45% GBs, .291 BABIP, 72% LOB, 3.58 ERA, 4.14 xFIP

Buehrle Career: 5.0 K/9, 2.0 BB/9, 46% GBs, .291 BABIP, 72% LOB, 3.83 ERA, 4.22 xFIP

Almost mirror images, right? [Mark] Buehrle is right on his career averages this season and he does this practically every single season, like clockwork. He is Jeff Suppan-esque in his consistency except he doesn’t stink. [Mark] Buehrle has tallied right around 46 WAR over 12 seasons and almost always produces 3.5-4.5 per season. Even his worst season was still league average by our standards here. …

Sign him Jerry! 2/25 may be enough. It doesn’t seem like Mark wants more years.
