Buehrle future HOFer?

With Mark Buehrle’s perfect game under his belt now, sportswriters aren’t wasting any time making their case for his eventual induction into the Hall of Fame.

Jon Paul Morosi makes his case.

Ten years down, he’s got 133 wins with a career 3.76 ERA.  But Buehrle does bring a lot more than stats.  He’s got a world championship in his pocket and he’s a consistent winner. The perfect game added on the no-hitter he already had looks real good.  Plus he’s played for one team for his whole career.  For some reason, that looks to the BBWAA. 

It’s too early to tell, of course, but I think if Buehrle stays the course and the Sox continue to get him the wins he needs, I don’t think he should have much trouble.  He’s only 31 years old.  Barring injury or scandal, he’s got plenty of time to boost the numbers he got.
