Don't worry, everybody, I read Jon Heyman so you don't have to. Well, actually, I read MLB Trade Rumors breakdown of the info in Heyman's latest post. I can only take so much.
Anyway, the only reason I even went that far was because Heyman talked about the White Sox and Mark Buehrle. According to him, the White Sox are going to offer Buehrle a two-year deal.
The White Sox are expected to try to bring starting pitcher Mark Buehrle back on a two-year deal, and he may be one of the many veterans loyal to owner Jerry Reinsdorf who stays for less. If he leaves, most would expect it to be for his hometown St. Louis Cardinals.Of course, this is not exactly shocking news. In order to appease fans the White Sox kind of have to make an offer to Buehrle, the question will be how big the offer is, and whether or not the White Sox actually want him to accept it.
As I've said here plenty of times already, I want Buehrle back next season. Unfortunately, with all the talk of the team trying to cut payroll wherever it can, barring some kind of miracle trade or Buehrle accepting a ridiculously low offer, I just don't see it happening.
I have been wrong before, though, that one time.
