I stand corrected, the Linebrink deal didn't happen according to other posters

Linebrink ended up not being traded.

Per rotoworld

Scott Linebrink wasn't traded to the Mets or any other team prior to Monday's deadline.

The rumored deal of Oliver Perez and Heath Bell for Linebrink likely was discussed, but it wasn't finalized. Linebrink will stay with the Padres as a setup man. There's no way he'll go in a waiver deal.

Yes, the teams that didn't panic were able to fix up their bullpen quite inexpensively.

When Xavier Nady (+ the other guy that I forget) fetches Linebrink and R Hernandez, it's pretty obvious that the Reds overpaid. Linebrink was definitely the best reliever on the market, if you intended to go for it this year. IMO, of course.

SD pulled out of the Linebrink deal. Perez will remain with the Mets.

ok, I stand corrected then.
