Actually because of of the 10/5 clause they couldnt trade him without his approval.

He must have weighed money vs. relocation, he has an agent and also appears to be a smart guy, it is was it is now.

How do we know Buehrle did not waive his NTC if there is one?

There isn't one, and Miami doesn't give them out.

I don't recall that the Sox even offered him a contract a year ago.

They didn't. JR told him to take the money Miami was offering him.

Because he wouldn't waive a NTC that made his family miserable

I don't see the big deal about the 160 million dollars. The Yankees took on more than that just for Rodriguez. Toronto got multiple all star caliber players signed to multiple years, it's not like they got a bunch of broken down junk.

And he can't take his dogs. I'm a huge dog person, and moving without them would be almost like moving without my kids. If I had his money, I'd probably retire before I'd report.

Players sometimes refuse to report after being traded, but it's very rare. The Dodgers traded Jackie Robinson to the Giants, and Robinson decided he would rather retire than play for the Giants. Curt Flood refused to report to the Phillies and sued baseball. The White Sox traded Dick Allen to the Braves for a player to be named later. Allen didn't want to play for the Braves (Chicago media at one point reported that Allen actually could end up the player to be named later), and the Braves swinged a deal with the Phillies. The story goes that Ed Farmer, early in his career, was involved in a three-way deal that sent him to the Yankees and pretty much said he wasn't going to play for the Yankees. Two days after the trade, his contract was sold to the Phillies. Farmer certainly would have refused to play for the Blue Jays, judging from his views on Canada that he has shared during Sox games.

I was surprised to see Buehrle didn't have a no-trade clause in his contract, considering he or his agent or both worked out language in his last White Sox contract that would have made him impossible to trade. And if he didn't have a no-trade clause, I would have expected some sort trade-impediment clause similar to what he had with the Sox.

The money was important enough to the Buehrle family that they agreed to go to Miami. It's easy for fans to see this as a consequence and perhaps even gloat over his situation.

Maybe the Blue Jays will work out a deal with the Cardinals. The problem is that the Blue Jays really don't have any incentive to pick up a portion of Buehrle's contract.

This is why they paid him an insane amount of money. It is in lieu of a NTC. The White Sox could not do the same thing because he had 5/10 rights with us.

He could always live on the US side of Niagra Falls and commute, unless NY has an law against pit bulls as well.

Edit: The car ride would be a bit lengthy. He's a rich man. Hire out a helicopter shuttle for a few months.

This is very out of character for him. Something must have happened for him to react like this.

Yeah, he's pissed because he placed his trust in someone and they betrayed it by lying to him. So it makes sense that he'd react like this.
