Marcus Stroman has decided to start calling Mark Buehrle 'dad'
Mark Buehrle has spent his 15 seasons in MLB largely without a nickname that's stuck. Since 2000, he's simply been the five-time All-Star, Gold Glove-winning, perfect game-throwing Mark. But fellow Blue Jay Marcus Stroman has a nickname suggestion for Buehrle's 16th season: "Dad."
The National Post's John Lott reports on this intra-Jays dad news:
Buehrle does have two real children, so it's probably not that weird for someone to call him dad.
Plus, if you're going to adopt a baseball dad, someone who's thrown 200+ innings in every one of his 15 seasons but the first is not a bad choice.
