you might want to look at which team seems more committed to letting their man try and figure himself out and succeed.
in my mind that is houston,
i don't think the white sox would let jenks work through his struggles the way houston may with lidge.
That's actually a tough call. Wheeler, Lidge's backup, would be a very good closer. I think Jenks' backup is MacDougal, who, even though he closed for a while in KC, is more set-up worthy. Also, Jenks was actually decent last year, while Lidge had ERA troubles. I think Lidge may actually have a shortrer leash.
