Crazy Mark Buehrle stat

He is only the 7th pitcher since 1901 to throw 200+ innings 14 straight seasons.  Crazy to think that 25 years ago there were only 4 man rotations and a dozen complete games every season that only 7 have done this.  I guess maybe that is why, lol.

This stat does a good job of pointing out the lies of the "tough it out" era of pitching. Old dudes love to talk about the good old days when guys would complete almost every game, pitch counts didn't matter, and there were three or four man rotations. Truth be told though, guys got injured all the time, they often ruined their careers by pitching through minor injuries, and it was crazy hard for a really good pitcher to have a reasonably long career.
