MARK BUEHRLE RUMORS & GOSSIP

The Last* of Mark Buehrle

It’s over. Maybe. Mark Buehrle has told reporters this offseason that he is “not planning on playing next season but is not ready to officially announce retirement,” which is a sort of confusing follow-up to the rumors we heard in October that the 36-year-old veteran starter was planning to retire. If Buehrle does wind up pitching in 2016, it sounds like the only team that...

Blue Jays trying to get Mark Buehrle to 200 innings didn’t work so well

What seemed like a nice gesture and a form of tribute to Mark Buehrle’s long career turned into something of an embarrassment, and perhaps a questionable decision by Blue Jays manager John Gibbons.
