Buehrle Considering Retirement?

Postby Old_Style » Mon Feb 16, 2009 6:13 pm ... 874.column

He was missing 18-month-old son Braden so much Sunday that he was talking about walking away from baseball after the 2011 season, when his contract expires. He would be 32, the same as Sandy Koufax was when he retired rather than continue to deal with an arthritic elbow.

"People may say I'm full of it," said Buehrle, relaxing in front of his locker at the White Sox's new Camelback Ranch. "I don't know. Maybe I am. But as I look at it today, I don't think you're going to see me in a baseball uniform for too many more years. I miss my family too much when I'm away."

He should be due for a decent payday when his current contract expires, so we'll see what happens.
