But its just willful ignorance if he really thought they surely would not trade him.
Basically Buehrle came to a crossroad where he had 2 choices.
Choice A - Stay with the team you know will never trade you for less money
Choice B - Make far more money for a team that is incredibly volatile and has always blown it up after doing either really good or really bad
I do feel for him and his family that they had an expectation to stay there, but he works in an industry with incredible relocation and turnover rates. Choice A and Choice B each had a consequence.
