Buehrle Inks Pact With Chicago Through 2011

Saturday, the fans of the Chicago White Sox held a going away party for starter Mark Buehrle, on Sunday they celebrated that he will remain in a White Sox uniform. Buehrle, and the team finally came to terms on a four year deal estimated to be worth $56 million. The deal had been worked on both sides through out the season but appeared to be dead because of Buehrle's insistence on a no trade clause, which the club was reluctant to grant. There is no word at this point at how that conflict was resolved. The White Sox made an announcement to the White Sox fans in attendance, after Chicago defeated the Minnesota Twins 6-3 Sunday afternoon. Chicago General Manager Ken Williams issued a statement saying that the team was very pleased to keep Buehrle in the fold. Saturday, Buehrle thought he had pitched his last start for the White Sox after his 3-1 win against the Twins.
