Buehrle introduced with "mixed emotions"

For those who are faint of heart, avert your eyes. On the right there is a video, and in it, Mark Buehrle is wearing a Marlins uniform. And even if you're not a Sox fan, you may want to avert your eyes because yikes, that uniform (especially the hat) is truly awful.

"We're excited, we're anxious, we're nervous," said Buehrle. "There's kinda a lot of mixed emotions in this. But we're happy, excited to get things going."

It seems apparent Buehrle's intent never was the leave the White Sox, as he offered the team one final shot at signing him before agreeing to terms with the Marlins. But if he was going to go somewhere else, going to Miami made sense from a continuity standpont.

"It was a big pushing point for us," said Buehrle of getting to play for Ozzie Guillen. "Obviously, I've been with him the last eight years and know how he is, what to expect. I know he's a big family man, and I think that was a big key because he loves my kids and my kids love him and they love being in the clubhouse, and I know Ozzie allows that. I think that was a big part of it."

For more comments from Buehrle, check out the video.
