Cardinals Very Intrested in Mark Buehrle

As the Albert Pujols follies continue another situation comes to the fore front. A few hours ago or more Ken Rosenthal reported that the Cardinals are dangling both Kyle Lohse and Jake Westbrook for a trade. They are trying to move one or the other to make room for Mark Buehrle. For some time Buehrle has been wanting to end his career with the Cardinals. Kyle Lohse has a no trade clause but Westbrook doesn’t. Westbrook will make 8.5 Million next year. If the Cards are trying to move both pitchers I tend to think its not only for Buehrle but for more money for Pujols. Lohse will make 12mil in his final season with the Cards. He has been quoted to say he will use his full no trade clause. I think he may not block it if the deal is right. Looks like all eyes on the Cardinals now.
