    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.

    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.
