Mark Buehrle was really good last night. Before that game, the things that would pop into my mind at the mention of his name were:

a. lightning-fast worker
b. wary of center field Morse Code-esque light signals
c. John Rheinecker

Now Buehrle is redefined.

Give the dude credit. Seriously.

The point is not what happened after the 18th Ranger out, or Jerry Hairston’s slide, or my impulsive email last night. Buehrle was dealing, and the Rangers couldn’t solve him.

So please resist chuckling at the double-entendre of all those mentions in today’s papers of how good his “cut” fastball was. It’s unbecoming.
