And a quote:
A Detroit Tigers official confirmed Monday that the team is discussing a trade that would send outfielder Bobby Higginson to the Marlins but said money issues could derail the deal.
During the weekend, the official was about ''90 percent'' certain the trade would happen but said the talks hit a snag when the two sides couldn't agree on how to divide Higginson's $8.85 million contract. As a 10-year major-league veteran who has played the most recent five years with the same team, Higginson can block any deal, but his agent said he is likely to accept a trade to the Marlins.
Since yesterday his agent has had a change of tune and says that Booby won't go to Miami. Sounds like he is angling for a buyout. One more reason to hate Higgy. He spouts off in the paper about wanting to play for a team with a chance to win, then when a trade is brought up says he won't go.
If they can't because Higgy won't go I would like to see them keep him and have him come in as a ninth inning defensive replacement only. Never pick up a bat. It would be better than just dumping him, and he has done nothing since roiding up(speculation)for his fat contract.
