Report: Mets unsuccessfully tried to deal Ollie

An interesting note this morning out of, which reported that the Mets attempted to swap much-maligned lefty Oliver Perez to the Cubs for equally-maligned right-hander Carlos Zambrano. The sticking point, according to the report, was the Mets’ insistence that the Cubs also take on the contract of second baseman Luis Castillo.

Though the deal did not happen, the web site also reported that Mets manager Jerry Manuel is refusing to pitch Perez at home in New York. According to, the Mets again plan on asking Perez to accept a Minor League assignment — something he refused to do earlier this season.
