He probably mis read, I also meant to say that even though Lidge blew it, it was NOT in a saving opportunity =\

It was 5-0 Cards when Lidge came in, no save op.


Yes, I know. But Lidge hadn't pitched in 5 days (this would've been his 6th), so it's understandable why he'd get work today.


You have 2 ids?


Ha, no. But for some strange reason I thought it was my post you had quoted. :-b

I don't think we'll see Wheeler yet but if I was in a roto league I don't know how much longer I'd let Lidge be in my starting lineup. H2h's quite a bit different - he can blow up era/whip for a week but once the week's over you have a clean slate. In roto though...man, I'd have a hard time sending him out in my starting lineup right now. Ditto for Jorge Julio. I'd give really serious thought to benching (not dropping) both in a roto league.

per RotoWorld:

The Astros have decided to pull Brad Lidge from the closer's role and use him earlier in games. Dan Wheeler is the new favorite for saves in Houston.

"I'm going to change the bullpen configuration a little bit," manager Phil Garner said. "Brad is not going to close as a general rule. ... As of right now I'm going to pitch him earlier in the game, sixth inning area, sixth-seventh inning area 'cause I want to pitch him more often, give him more consistent work. As it stands right now I'll probably close with Wheeler, set up with [Chad] Qualls and [Rick] White." It had to be done. Lidge's fastball is still there, so he could turn things around if he gets his head on straight. In the meantime, Wheeler will likely do a fine job saving games. Apr. 9 - 1:58 pm et
