It's too funny seeing people panic over this. :-D

Usually teams put most of their players on waivers just incase they want to deal through a waiver trade. I know for a fact the Mets put Wright and Reyes on waivers and shortly after they were claimed, they pulled them off. It's not something to go nuts over since it's pretty common.

Okay, thanks for the explanation. He's not even on my team. I was just wondering what the scoop was. Thanks.

Exactly right man. I have no idea why people are freaking.

What to hear something funny? The Mets placed Kaz Matsui on waivers, he got claimed and they pulled him back. :~(

It was most likely because of his no-trade clause. :-/

Ok, here's a good waiver question. If a player has a no-trade clause, and he gets claimed, can you just let the player go to the other team? I know you can just give them up (a la Randy Myers), but I wonder how that works if it's a waiver deal. It wouldn't "technically" be a trade... :-?

I thought I had the whole thing figured out, but that's a new wrinkle.

AFAIK the player has veto power until he clears through waivers and is released. A waiver claim is the same as a trade as far as a veto clause is concerned otherwise it would be too easy to circumvent no-trade clauses.
