According to MLBTR The Cubs rejected an offer of Luis Castillo and Ollie Perez for Carlos Zambrano. Not really suprising. Castillo was a deal breaker here, but if we can at least get Perez off this team, I'd be fine with keeping Luis and who knows maybe Big Z can turn things around in New York.
Also some notes from SI's Jon Heyman:
- Mets shot down the Pirates offer of Octavio Dotel for minor league pitcher Robert Carson. Omar is really holding his prospects tight..
- Houston offered Brett Myers for Josh Thole and Bobby Parnell. I wouldn't make that trade, I still like Parnell's stuff and Thole has shown that he's going to be a solid hitter at the major league level. Hopefully as the hours fade, Houston will lower the price on Myers.
