I believe his K and BB ratio's work out to around his career averages. I believe he gives up slightly more hits. I don't see how one can say his stats on turf aren't good. They are similar to his career norms.
Without getting into the deep weeds, here's a look at the basics for Buehrle on turf.

ERA Grass 3.77
Turf 4.37

Whip Grass 1.26
Turf 1.38

BAA Grass .270
Turf .289

The BAA difference is fairly substantial, which is logical considering he's a contact pitcher.

I'm also surprised how little respect Baltimore gets on this board.
I don't think there's any question they'll compete again.

Toronto probably improved temporarily, but this is the AL East.
