For what it's worth: The Macon Telegraph is reporting that a deal of Paul Maholm and Jose Castillo for Adam LaRoche is on the table. But this report also says that it is on "life support" because of Littlefield's desire to not trade one of his young starters.
(UPDATE) John Perrotto over at the Beaver County Times has a different version of what's actually happening down at the winter meetings with these deals. Also, if you'd like a recap of all the different versions of these stories, check out Honest Wagner's last few posts. It's quite a story.)
