Same situation with me. Bad news with Lidge, BUT good news with Torres securing the save. Bleh. Thanks Lidge! Welcome to the bench, Brad.

Get used to it. I had Oswalt last year, and it happened all the time last year.


i traded for Oswalt mid season last year and have him this year. hopefully he can still get 15-16 wins, but without that bum Lidge he could probably get 20

All this poo poo talk does not make sense to me.

Lidge has a great fastball and his 88 mph slider is the sex.

Maybe... he just blew a save and he will get the next one... I have him and this raised an eyebrow, but he is not sunk yet.

This makes him a great buy low risk.

Lidge took one for the team. You got to look at it in a positive way.


I'm in the same boat...I'll take it as long as he rights the ship (or at least starts bailing some of the water).

There are two ways to look at Lidge -- the optimist says that last year he suffered from a very high percentage of balls hit in play that fell for hits 35% (30% is more typical). That combined with his low strand rate led to an ERA double what would have been expected.

The pessimist say that a lot of those extra balls that "fell in for hits" frankly fell into the leftfield stands. His 2006 17% HR rate is huge.

I really thought that HR% was flukely -- but maybe not. Something obviously isn't working.

How is he a "low risk buy-low candidate." I see no reason why you would expect him to return to his previous dominant form. He's been blowing saves consistently the last year-and-a-half.
