Jim Bowden from ESPN is reporting that club sources are confirming up to ten more teams have interest in free agent left handed pitcher Mark Buehrle. The teams listed are the Washington Nationals, Chicago White Sox, Miami Marlins, Chicago Cubs, Minnesota Twins, Texas Rangers, New York Yankees, Kansas City Royals, St. Louis Cardinals, Boston Red Sox and the Arizona Diamondbacks.
We had already heard confirmed interest from the Yankees and Marlins, but to see such a large list can be a surprise. Teams like the Red Sox and Rangers make sense, as they are teams who need pitching very much, particularly from the left handed side. The biggest surprise here is likely the Cardinals, who have pretty much a full rotation in place for next season already.
This leaves me wondering: with all the interest we see for Buehrle, would you rather sign C.J. Wilson to a six year deal, or Mark Buehrle to a two year deal? Which seems like the best move for your favorite team?
