While at work tonight, ESPN radio mentioned that the White Sox don't want to give Buerhle a no-trade clause. If the other figures are correct (4 years/56 million), Chicago has no excuse. Give him what he wants and move on to dealing away other players.
As we have discussed here extensively, Rasmus is not going to be in any deal. So bye-bye MB and best wishes. Something about an 08 rotation with three lefties didn't seem right in Cardinal country.
I think he'll be signed by next weekend, only because that team doesn't need any more distractions.
