Sometimes life happens and sometimes there are hard choices. Yankeeland wanted to eventually see Slade Heathcott and Jose Campos make it to the Bigs... but it never happpened.
According to Joel Sherman, Slade, Campos and lefty David Huff were non-tendered. In other words, they were cut loose...

"Non-tendered means that an arbitration-eligible player was not offered a contract by their team. A non-tendered player becomes a free agent available to sign with any team."
Thank you Answers.com. The Internet has everything.
In tomorrow's lesson, we'll do an in-depth lesson on Respect. It's fascinating.
In all seriousness... I wish those guys the best of luck. As Ty Hensley's mom once told us:
That always stuck with me and it's so True. Many factors, plus you want to get there and stay there after that. It's all these players ever work for. It's tough and fans don't get it. Great words from a great woman.
Good Luck to those guys!
