It hurts so much to read "former White Sox Mark Buehrle." I really wish we could have found a way to keep him.

Thank you! I love it when CRAP like that gets tossed out there. MB didn't help them get to the playoffs in 2009, 2010 or 2011, did he? Not that I hate him, because I don't. Just enough already.

I just picked up a Buehrle bobblehead, mini bobblehead, and jersey t-shirt for $23 at the clearance sale at the Sports Depot.

October26 - Thank you to the 2005 World Series Champions Chicago White Sox!
October26 - Twenty-SEVEN years ago, I married my husband on October 26. Since that day, we have been blessed with a wonderful family. Then, on October 26, 2005, when the baseball gods bestowed their good fortunes upon us, we saw the White Sox win the World Series. An incredibly talented team of grinders made every Sox fan's dream come true. My family and I celebrated with reckless abandon. And now, we look forward to that day when our White Sox will once again be World Series Champions!

That doesn't mean he couldn't have helped this year. I sure as hell would have rather paid him than Danks. Yes I know it wasn't in the cards, but considering the late season collapse people are going to play the what if game, why get so mad at them?

Exactly. I agreed with KW's reasoning to give the deal to the younger Danks instead of Buehrle, but now that the 2012 season is over we can see that Buehrle far out-performed Danks to date.

Congrats to Buehrle for keeping his streak alive for the 12th season, that's a fantastic accomplishment.

Yeah, I got the shirsey for $5 today. I figured it was a decent enough purchase--can wear it to bed at least, and the guy's probably going to end up with his number retired. $5 was a bargain considering they'll probably be selling it again at full price in 5-10 years...

It seems all the other former player shirseys were pretty picked over by Sunday (they were 2 for $5); couldn't really find any in my size other than Swisher and Manny.

That's only true if you started watching the games 3 weeks ago.

Seriously. I love Burls, but it was the right move. This team wasn't going to get it done anyway.
