I am sick of waiting for this guy to record a damn save!!! Seriously, I know its not his fault...although he did blow it yesterday...but come on, whens he finally gonna rack up the saves??? :-[ %-6

Hopefully he doesn't end up like Foulke last year who struggled to get 30 save opps.

I'm frustrated too everytime I see Mesa or Lyon with 10+ saves.

drop him.
Give a man a fish and he'll eat for a day, teach a man to fish and he'll drown because you forgot to teach him to swim.

Lidge is fine - he's k'ing a ton. If you are depending on him as your sole source of saves, for some bizarre reason, that's just your fault - you should always try to have three closers unless you're punting the category. Lidge is doing what he does best: striking batters out and pitching the baseball

Lidge has also been battling sickness recently as have other astros thats probably contributed significantly to his recent struggles, just doesn't look sharp right now.

Hopefully Lidge's owner in my league is annoyed with him as well because I would love to take him of his hands. He is an amazing talent. One of the best relievers I have ever had the pleasure to watch.

He was on my red flag list this year and I didn't hesitate to take K-Rod ahead of him in all of my leagues.

Not only was it likely that his save opps. were going to be reduced closing for such a poor offensive team, there was also a strong chance he spends some time on the DL this season.
