It's been likely the Chicago favorite was going to be signing a free-agent contract with any one of a host of suitors. It seems that the Miami Marlins will be getting the benefit of Buehrle's services for the next four seasons.
Ken Rosenthal and Jon Paul Morosi of Fox Sports are reporting that Buehrle is set to ink a deal worth $58 million over those four years.
Fans hoped for a last minute turn of events that would somehow keep Buehrle pitching for the only organization he has known. What we all kind of knew all along seems to be definite. As I speculated last month, Buehrle is moving south to reunite with Ozzie Guillen. Good luck to him.
If this indeed is the time to eulogize his career with the White Sox, there were plenty of memorable moments along the way. Feel free to comment with some of yours.
Here are my top five memories of Buehrle through the years.
