Today, Mark Buehrle pitched the 18th perfect game in the history of Major League Baseball and the first since Randy Johnson did it back in '04
This also goes down as Buehrle's second career no-no; his first coming back in 2007. Put this alongside his World Series Championship back in 2005 and his four trips to the All-Star game and i'd say his resume looks quite impressive...oh yeah..he's only 30.
Hard to believe when you think about it; probably because the man is currently pitching in his tenth big league season. This season in particular, Mark has been lights out going 11-3 with a nasty 3.28 earned run average. For
his career, Buehrle stands at 133-90 with an e.r.a just above 3.75 (including the fact he is attempting to win 15 or more games in a season for the 6th time) There are many starting pitchers that get placed in the spotlight before Buehrle, but after yet another unbelievable accomplishment, he more than deserves to be included in the discussion when it comes to being one of the premier pitchers of the game today!
