Guardado and Cordero never had real closer stuff. Lidge has ace stuff, but is just off right now. Big difference.
Doesn't matter if you are blowing saves. John Rocker had ace stuff. The only thing that matters is if you are blowing leads and Lidge definitely looks very shaky right now.
Wow, Yoda and I agree for the first time, well, ever. I don't care what "stuff" you have if you can't get outs, blow leads, etc. I remmember when the Angels won the WS with small ball while everyone else preached how much "pop" their team's bats had. Herm Edwards said it best, "You play to win the game!".
BTW, John Rocker is one of my favorite players ever. No joke.
