Default MLB Trade Deadline Question:

Alright Baseball Eggheads (meant as a compliment), please explain this to me:

The Astros traded a minor league LHP to Arizona for Oliver Perez...

The swap came a week after baseball's deadline for trading players without placing them on waivers

-I thought that could not happen.

MY BIG CONCERNS ABOUT AMERICA:

Internally- We spend too much time assuring our rights without learning the responsibilities that should accompany them.
Externally - No matter how much we claim to take the higher moral ground, we have neither respected nor attempted to understand other cultures.

Not sure, but my guess is that since the player in question was in the minors, the waiver rule didn't apply.
