Just heard from Seattle Mainers bullpen coach John Wetteland, who apparently woke up in his home this morning to find a gaggle of media camped in front of his home in Texas.
In a nutshell, Wetteland said he was never suicidal, that the police responding to his home did their jobs well - but had been called because of a huge misunderstanding.
Then paramedics, who came with police, found his heart rate and blood pressure high - Wetteland said he was a bit worked up at the time - and he wound up accompanying them to the hospital.
Wetteland was home last night, he and the family are together and well today and he wanted anyone who wondered to know this: "I'm fine."
Thank God. The world, and the game of baseball, is much more fun with John in it.
