This is a pretty funny post. Please do not compare Dan Kolb to Brad Lidge. And also please stop saying that Lidge's meltdown is because of Albert Pujols' home run. Its a home run hes given up a lot in his career, i hope you guys realize the Astros won the NLCS. Id say pujols hr would be a factor if that was game 7.


Umm...when did I compare the two pitchers? Umm...when did I ever mention the Pujols homerun? Hope you're not illiterate.


Only the first 2 sentences were directed at you. I just didnt want to make 2 posts.

Just curious, why the run to grab Wheeler, when the article says Wheeler and Quals will split the saves?


its just to try and steal a few saves. even if you only get 2 or 3 saves out of him, that can be the difference in the end. i would hope that nobody is dropping any solid fantasy players for him. but i still had rodney on a team, and dropped him for wheeler. when he loses the job, ill pick up someone else who may get a few saves.

I never intended to imply that I am comparing Kolb to Lidge. I mefrely stated that the situation at hand reminded me of my situation with Kolb last year after his 39 (I think) save season.

Sean Tracey has my apologies, we all know Ozzie Guillen is an idiot. I'm rooting for you!

Closers are fickle. While I do think Lidge will eventually get his job back, you can't rule out the possibility that he may not.
