Jon Paul Morosi tweeted last night that the Cubs have had multiple conversations with Mark Buehrle.

You figure that there will be umpteen teams who have at least some level of communication Buehrle so this isn’t monumental.  But at least there are a couple of cool things about this prospect of Buehrle playing in Wrigley.  For starters, Buehrle wouldn’t have to move. And man, selling a house still isn’t easy these days.

Added bonus: he could get added to this longer-than-I-thought-it-would-be list of guys who played for both the Cubs and the White Sox.

Yeah, I know. I miss the regular season too.

    This would be a nice pick up for the Cubs. He’d also fit well in STL or TEX.

    Now I think the Cubs have their head on straight. Too bad for the rest of the division, that they hired Theo. He is the first Cubs GM in a long time who knows how to win.

      It’s really bizarre to see the Cubs being run by current, young, progressive executives. It’s going to take awhile to get used to this.

        But isn’t it a nice thing to get used to?

    great start for Theo if it happens. Inning eater that keeps the ball down…

    It’ll never happen. Thin pitching market will drive his cost up beyond reason.
