The Buehrle Bile File Says : We Like To Lend A Hand: Game 145 Preview

Mark Buehrle (L,12-12, 4.80) for the White Sox
vs.
Ervin Santana (R, 14-7, 4.53) for the Nomadic Religious Entities
----------------------------------------------------------------
The Buehrle Bile File Says...

Since Mr Buehrle's opponent tonight happens to be named after a city that happens to be named after a religious figure who supposedly attends to God, we'll stick with that theme and make an outrageous claim.

Almost everyone has once heard the parable of the Good Samaritan, and how he helped care for his Jewish mortal enemy after he was mugged and left for dead on the roadside. His act of kindness was a lesson to all to care for all mankind, even those you hate.

Well, we kinda feel like Mark Buehrle's Good Samaritan, and we have aided in what can only be considered a miraculous turn around in Mark Buehrle's pitching -- our aide coming in the form of utter honesty. To wit: In the 6 starts prior to the first Buehrle Bile File post, Mark was 0-5 with a 9.92 ERA. Since our playing the Jay Mariotti role to Buehrle's Ozzie , in his last 7 starts he's 3-3 with a 5.00 ERA. Yes, since our fray into the journalistic outhouse, we've helped Mark win 300x times as many games and cut his ERA in half!

We picked him off the deck, dusted him off and gave him reason to pause his lousy pitching. He saw the light. He came to his senses.

But he still lost 3 friggin' games (sorry, God, I stop with the swares)! And we'll kick him in the rear end if he pitches like he did in his last outing.

Forget Good Samaritan, we're his guilty conscience. And the angel on his shoulder is fleeing as we speak.

A new poll, nice. I was getting tired of the old one. I just wish we could see the results on the main front page.

Interesting. This Frank Thomas vs. Jim Thome thing has kinda struck a nerve with the front office guys.

Check out Scott Reifert's blog and his sniping about the truth of the situation.

Tiggers win 3-2 in the bottome of the 9th on a walk-off hr from Carlos Guillen. Was this their Crede moment of 2006?

Pods is on base! IN THE 1ST INNING!!!

9/12/2006 9:14 PM

Bah! Mark gives up a lead-off single.

9/12/2006 9:28 PM

hopefully he gets stranded like Pods did

Vlad vs. Buehrle...not a great matchup for our guy. In fact, it was Buehrle's last start facing these Angels that prompted the creation of the Buehrle Bile File.

Does that count as a pick off?

9/12/2006 9:32 PM  
Blogger jamesmnordbergjr said...

At least Mark knows how to do one thing correctly: pick-offs.

9/12/2006 9:32 PM  
Blogger Jeeves said...

That was a ridiculous hit. Beuhrle missed his spot, but how did he yank that so far?

9/12/2006 9:35 PM  
Blogger jamesmnordbergjr said...

Where the hell was that pitch? It looked low and inside, and unhitable.

Tip your cap, Mark. He just plain beat you that time. The Vlad walk, however, your fault.

Time for some runs

Sheesh, I thought Quinlin just hit a carbon copy of the Rivera hr. Thank god it was foul.

9/12/2006 9:37 PM  
Blogger jamesmnordbergjr said...

But again, Mark gives up a 1st inning hr.
And 3 hits and a walk.

Looking at that site meter, I'm curious to know who the reader is from Mount Juliet, Tennessee. I've seen that more than once. That's where my daughter lives, and I know her step-dad is a huge Sox fan. He and I shared a few chuckles about the Sox when I visited in July.

9/12/2006 9:53 PM  
Blogger Jeeves said...

that would be quite the coincidence if it was him.
It's funny seeing the locations from which people see the site. Sometimes that are some really exotic places up there

9/12/2006 9:57 PM  
Blogger jamesmnordbergjr said...

No kidding it'd be coincidental, it isn't that big a town.

I'll ask him when I call her this week.

If Buehrle loses this game 2-0, I can think of a few neighbors that won't be liking me much.

Buehrle gets out of it...hallelujah

no need for Handel just yet

9/12/2006 10:13 PM  
Blogger jamesmnordbergjr said...

At the last second I thought Figgins was getting to that. And Hawk needs to JUST SHUT UP. At this time of the year, a good at bat is an atbat that produces results, not one that lasts 9-12 pitches ending in an out.

Nice job Mack, just enough.

Alrite. Rob Mack...if only he were playing in left.

Haha...DJ can't get the score right at all

he said 3-1 lead then changed it to 2-1 lead.

umm, whose pick to click just got a 2 rbi hit?

Pods = bad
I am stunned that he stopped.

Twins win 7-5. We need a win just to keep pace, but with the lead, I"m quite confident of that.

Yah he does. You can't blame him after the job he did last year. It's weird looking at his stats from last year, because he was so good yet received such little fanfare.
