Not Pujols so much as Podsednik, IMO. But they took him out of his save situation today because 3 lefties were coming up for Cincy, which are batting .294 against him as opposed to .167 for righties. With men on 2nd and 3rd, I think it was just a safe move but definitely showing lack of confidence.

He may mentally be finished, for this season anyway.

I watched him pitch last night and he just dosen't have it. He looks like he's living in a daze. I flat out dropped his worthless A$$ because I can't live with his reputation from the past anymore. In my opinion he's done.

closer egos are fragile either they are on top of the world with swagger or shattered....just like the wild thing and byung hyun kim...

pujols and then pods broke him...he still has great stuff...but the pressure situations are too much...

Lidge was one of my 6 keepers last season, and for that reason only I can't drop him from my team, but he is basically worthless, even if he strings together a couple of saves, i'm not confident that he won't blow up...that and Houston can't score for a lick, therefore Lidge sarcks. :-t

Interesting...

Rotoworld has a blurb that states that the Stro's could possibly move Lidge for a bat in the lineup, probably a good idea to get him a change of scenery.

who would be next in line for saves in HOU after Lidge? Should I drop Zumaya for Wheeler (or Qualls), just in case?

5x5 roto.

I say no...simply because Wheeler isn't much better than Lidge. Lidge still has good K/9 he just walk way too much. I think his head is not right but Houston really don't have anyone else good either.

If you expect Zumaya to close this year, dont....If you neeed saves and can afford to speculate by grabbing Wheeler, do.
