White Sox - Signed Buehrle

Chicago White Sox - Signed P Mark Buehrle to a 4-year, $56 million extension.

What’s there not to like about this?  Buehrle’s not a true 3.03 ERA pitcher, but the Pale Hose don’t need him to be and they’re not paying him like they expect him to pay.  Given the market, $14 million a year for a healthy pitcher who’s a good bet to put up an ERA+ of 120 every year is an excellent deal.  No snark needed in a world in which Barry Zito, an inferior pitcher, gets twice the dough for twice the time.

I am heartened to see somebody, somewhere, not just piling on with the usual prognostications about the Low Strikeout Rate of Destiny.
