"We've kidded around about it,'' Williams responded, when asked if talks with Buehrle had started. "I told him that once we get to his free-agent year I was just going to put a St. Louis Cardinals uniform in his locker and that would be the end of it. For the last five years, he's been talking about it. I don't know if we've got too much of a real shot, and that's OK.''

I don't like hearing that from williams. I want buehrle in our rotation for a long time to come. I know that Mark has said that he's interested in pitching for the cardinals but he's also said that he'll stick with the Sox as long as they want him.....

Joe Cowley is a ****ing moron. Let's look at a story from a real reporter, Scott Merkin, with basically the same quote.


After the 2007 campaign, though, if no new contract has been agreed upon at that time, is Buehrle on his way to St. Louis? General manager Ken Williams joked recently, tongue firmly in cheek, that he figured it was a foregone conclusion. But don't count on Buehrle going anywhere.

"He's talked about pitching for St. Louis every offseason as long as I could remember," said Williams with a wry smile of Buehrle. "I just assumed after the 2007 season that he's a Cardinal.

"As a matter of fact, I figured the last game of the 2007 season, I would call [St. Louis general manager] Walt Jocketty and just get a uniform for him," added Williams, showing he has his own sarcastic side to add to the equation. "I'm not entirely joking, but we will see."

And Buehrle:

"I would like to play there one day in my career," Buehrle added of St. Louis. "But I don't know if playing there and signing a big deal and spending five years there, if I would like that too much. Obviously, I like it here and would love to stay here."

A good article. (http://chicago.whitesox.mlb.com/NASApp/mlb/news/article.jsp?ymd=20060330&content_id=1374516&vkey=news_cws&fext=.jsp&c_id=cws)

When are we going to start automatically sending Cowley's stuff to the roadhouse? He's as bad as the Windsock.

Read Buehrle's quote in the Tribune commemorative book. he said he dreamed about playing for the Cards, but if the Sox still wanted him, he would stay for possibly his whole career.

I think Mark wants to stay here for a long time. I think St. Louis is somewhere he'd want to go for the last few years of his career but I'd say that's at least a decade away.
