It might have seemed as if everyone was happy after the Baltimore Orioles traded Mickey Tettleton to the Detroit Tigers on Saturday, but there was one notable exception.
New-look free agent Mike Heath had been hoping to sign a new contract with the Tigers, but the arrival of Tettleton confirmed his suspicions about the club's intentions.
"I feel the same way I felt before I heard about it," said a disconsolate Heath. "I feel that they don't want me there. Why would they give a guy like Tettleton that kind of money if they weren't going to play him? They can't give him that much money and put him on the bench."
