OK, so everybody and his uncle knows that Mark Buehrle sucks when he runs up against the New York Yankees.

Sometimes you’re the windshield, sometimes you’re the bug.

It’s pretty easy to figure out which is which when the Blue Jays’ veteran left-hander and the Bronx Bombers meet.

Following last night’s loss, Buehrle has won just one game in 17 lifetime starts against the Yankees and is the losing pitcher in 11 of them.

The lone victory for Buehrle occurred in his second start of the 2004 season, April 10 to be exact.

In that game, played at old Yankee Stadium, Buehrle was aces as he allowed two runs on three hits over eight innings in a game the Chicago White Sox would win 7-3.

A footnote to the game is that former Jays closer Billy Koch came in for the White Sox to pitch the final inning.
