The Law of Averages Sure Caught up with Mark Buehrle

After starting the season 10-1 through June 1st, Mark Buehrle won his 13th game of the season today.  With only four games left in the Blue Jays’ schedule, he isn’t likely to get any more.

This will the sixth year in a row in which Buehrle has won either 12 or 13 games, and the ninth year in a row he’s won between 10 and 15.  He is a remarkably consistent pitcher if not a remarkably good one, at least by MLB standards.  At his current pace, he’s exactly eight more seasons away from getting his 300th career win.

As I like to say, the law of averages will usually kick a ballplayers’ butt.
