Mark Buehrle: In Memoriam

May 21, 1999 - December 7, 2011

We are gathered here today to remember Mark Alan Buehrle. He came to us for $167,000 as a draft-and-follow from the 38th round of the 1998 amateur draft. Today, he leaves us for a four-year, $58 million contract with the Miami Marlins (per Ken Rosenthal).

My favorite Mark Buehrle memory is when he came out of the bullpen in the 14th inning to get the last out in Game 3 of the 2005 World Series, recording the only save of his career.

Please add your memory - or at least your name - to the guestbook below.
