Makes a heck of a lot more sense than a father not seeing his children and vice versa for a baseball season.
Half-serious, half-joking, wasn't meant to be completely sarcastic. Considering that the baseball off-season is during the school year, Buehrle should be able to be in St. Louis with family and dogs during the winter. Paulie and many other players (whether from the area or not, as Konerko is) live in places like Phoenix during the offseason, anyway, no? I just think that being an athlete is a unique job, traveling during half the year and then being off for a few months in the offseason.
