According to Metsblog.com, the Padres have trade Scott Linebrink to the Mets for Oliver Perez and Heath Bell.
The Padres will probably regret parting with Linebrink, not that Bell can't step into the pen and do a decent job. Perez, back with his original team, is still a nice property for the future, but he can't help now.

Oh man, they really did this? :(:

I would have thought Towers could have gotten more than Perez and Bell.

I had heard Linebrink's name mentioned for Mike Lowell. Padres got ripped on this one.

They're in first place in the middle of a race where every team in the division is in it, and they trade a good set up guy?

I'm not sure I would have done Lowell for linebrink alone but I think with a third team the Pads could have come out a lot better than they did...

...for somebody who's 2-10 with an ERA around 6 and a mediocre middle reliever.

Maybe they really regretted trading him for Giles a few years back.

No news anywhere on this one, and I live in San Diego so I thought I would of heard something.

People are now saying this is unconfirmed...
maybe the "metsblog" blew it.

MetsBlog reported it from other places. Supposedly the other sites that reported it have taken down the reports. Right now, it looks like Perez is still with the Mets.

this trade never happened. Padres.com has yet to post it and they posted the Walker trade within minutes
