And then there were two. Mark Buehrle officially left the White Sox Wednesday, signing a four-year, $58 million contract with the Miami Marlins. Only two players remain from the White Sox' 2005 World Series championship team - Paul Konerko and A.J. Pierzynski. Early Wednesday night, I got Konerko's exclusive reaction to Buehrle's departure. “My thoughts are that it is tough, sad day for White Sox,” Konerko said via email. “So many different ways. No way to spin this any other way, just try to get over it and move on. All his teammates hate seeing him go, I guarantee you that.” Konerko always shoots straight, and he did so again reacting to Buehrle.
