Buehrle for Milledge?

Scott Merkin at, writes about he newest rumor to go around that involves Mark Buehrle to the Mets for Lastings Milledge:

One of the newest rumors making its way around the Swan and Dolphin Resort on Monday involved the movement of White Sox southpaw Mark Buehrle via trade to the Mets in return for outfielder Lastings Milledge.

It's a rumored connection between teams mentioned previously during the current offseason, but in its past incarnation, the trade focused more on Javier Vazquez or Freddy Garcia switching to New York. And after hearing White Sox general manager Kenny Williams list pitching as his top priority for upgrading his Minor League system Monday afternoon, despite already possessing up-and-coming young arms such as Brandon McCarthy, Charlie Haeger and Lance Broadway, it's clear no trade will be made without top young pitching coming back in return to the South Siders.
