According to Lynn Henning of the Detroit News, the Tigers have made inquiries to Mark Buehrle. Watch as Henning sets phasers to “every Mark Buehrle cliche you’ve ever heard”:
The Tigers aren’t talking about Buehrle, although it’s known they have been one of many clubs inquiring what it might take to sign the fast-working, strikes-throwing, innings-gulping, finesse left-hander who is [Kenny] Rogers’ virtual clone in style and consistency.
The funny thing about all of the Buehrle reports: each time a Buehrle rumor is mentioned, it is said “but there are so many teams interested in him that the price may get too rich for [latest rumored suitor].” Which sort of reminds me of that Yogi Berra line about the restaurant: “No one goes there nowadays, it’s too crowded.”
Someone’s gonna sign him, right?
