The Buehrle Curse Lives
Mark Buehrle is the gift that keeps on giving for the Yankees.
Following Friday’s 6-4 win over the Blue Jays, Buehrle dropped to 1-12 in 19 career starts against the Bronx Bombers. The only pitcher with a worse record against the Yankees (min. 15 starts) is Red Ruffing, who was 1-16 vs them from 1924-47.
Buehrle’s only win vs the Yankees came on April 10, 2004, and since then he is 0-10 with a 7.34 ERA in 15 starts.
The 15-start winless streak is the longest by a left-hander vs the Yankees over the last 100 years, and the longest by any pitcher since Sidney Ponson went winless in 15 starts vs New York from 1999-2003.
He is 0-6 in eight starts at the new Yankee Stadium, by far the most starts without a win there by any pitcher and the most losses without a win.…
