The strike-out rate hasn't really suffered though and that's where there's hope of a return. His walk rate hasn't been terrible, k rate is still there...the only blemish is his home run rate. If it stays at 2006 levels he's toast. If not he could certainly return to dominance.

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.


well.....

2006 : sucked
2007 spring: sucked
2007 1st game: blown save


surely a buy low candidate..........

You should only trade for Lidge if you already have Wheeler or if Wheeler is part of the deal.

From Astros.com

.....

And now, the questions resume. Will Lidge get the ball in the next save situation?

"Yes," answered manager Phil Garner.

Why?

"Because he's my closer," Garner replied.

No one seemed to have a problem with the pitch Lidge threw to Nady. It was an inside fastball, in the same area where Oswalt had pitched to Nady throughout the game. Oswalt surmised Nady was waiting for it this time.

"With [Lidge], you've got to try to have a zone," Nady said. "Fortunately, I got a fastball in and I was able to put some wood on it. With him, he's got good stuff, you've got to battle up there and try to find something you can drive."

Lidge stood at his locker and answered the same questions for several minutes, contending that he was comfortable with the pitch he threw Nady.

"Honestly, the guy hit a good pitch tonight and I felt good out there," Lidge said. "It was an unfortunate result. The reality is, I still feel good right now. I still feel confident, I still feel like I can have a great season. I'm not going to worry about tonight. It is frustrating. There is no doubt about it. We got two pretty quick outs there."

Wheeler did not perform any better in game two.

If you think that Brad Lidge will result in the Astros being at the bottom of their division, well, then you just don't know a whole heck of a lot about the game of baseball, I'm sorry.

My hope is that even if lidge does screw up a couple of times, Wheeler screws up right alongside with him
