Bulls have a new alternate jersey, however, I think it's only being used for Christmas. Every team gets one. Here's the Chicago one.

Those look awful, and will be as bad as the Hawks WC jerseys to try and follow on TV. Although I guess you can follow hoops on TV without looking at numbers, so that really doesn't matter...

Buehrle can't move on of his dogs with him to Toronto because of a province wide ban on pit bulls... that is absolute BS.

I can't see him wanting to drive 160 miles roundtrip every night. Plus, tax money aside, who would want to live in Buffalo or Niagara Falls when you can live in Toronto.

The guy probably loves his dogs enough to do that. Plus, 'Merica

I don't know but my sister and brother in law have one and the god damn thing is crazy. I hope they can get him trained, he's just so damn hyper. The only thing I have figured out when I've been over there is one time we ordered Mexican and I got him a burrito dinner so we could enjoy our food, mother****er sucked it up like a hoover, beans, rice, everything. He actually laid down and chilled out after that. There has to be a way to get him to relax other than overfeeding him Mexican food though.

IIRC, Buehrle lived in Dupage, I wanna say in St. Charles. This would explain that.

I'd rather not pay him 10 mill a season though. You can find mid 4 guys like Travis Wood for a lot cheaper.

I'm cautiously optimistic Wood can get under 4. He really seemed to turn a corner down the stretch last year. Really, he is usually pretty good, just has some really bad clunkers.

He's streaky. Or at least it seemed like it.

Travis Wood is a great #4-5 guy for a team that's rebuilding.

eh, his family will probably still live in the U.S., so the dog can stay with them, so not seeing that as being a big deal.

I do agree that pit bull bans are ridiculous, though. Pretty much any large dog can be deadly if it so wanted. It's all on the owners as to the temperament of the dog. My cousin has a pit bull and aside from it being an energetic idiot that jumps on people whenever they first come in, it's the nicest dog you'll ever see. Also smart enough to know to turn it down a few notches when a little kid's in the room as it knows its own strength.

That article I read made it sound like the plan was for his entire family, and all 4 of his dogs to move with him to Toronto... And then they found out about the ban.

I've always been a fan of his but we really didn't need a catcher. I wonder if this means a trade is coming.

They needed another catcher. It'll be Castillo and Navarro next year.

He actually started a game for the Reds in the playoffs. He was really good the Rays but has since fallen off. Short-term deal for little money doesn't hurt. Not going to complain.

He did hit .290 is somewhat limited action, but he went away and did nothing to note of for a few seasons.

I remember when he and Edwin Jackson were the Yankees' top tier, blue chip prospects.

Not that it matters, but he was actually a Dodgers prospect... He's never had anything to do with the Yankees.




Oh, and looks like Reyes will lose about $8M via higher taxes... ouch.
