Mark Buehrle On Michael Vick: My Wife And I Hoped He Would Get Injured

Posted: Updated:

Michael Vick had an amazing season, leading the Philadelphia Eagles to an NFC East title and a No. 3 seed in the postseason. But there are some who don't think highly of the NFL Comeback Player of the Year.

Chicago White Sox pitcher Mark Buehrle is apparently one of them.

In a story posted by Scott Merkin on MLB.com, Buehrle and his wife Jamie explained that they are dog lovers and weighed in on Michael Vick's story.

"Even if you are not a dog lover, how can you sit there and make two dogs fight and one is going to die?" Mark said. "How could you do that if you are somewhat sane?"

Vick served 18 months in prison along with two months of home confinement after pleading guilty to running a dogfighting operation.

Their comments on Vick were removed from the article, but Merkin posted some of them on his twitter account.
