Now let's see if Wheeler can take the job and run with it.

How the mighty have fallen. Pujols's one swing effectively ruined Lidge's career.

To be fair, it was a very big swing.
Let's go O's. Let's go Mets.

"Brad will not be closing as a general rule," Garner said. "There may be a situation where it will be right to do it, but we'll probably pitch him earlier in the sixth or seventh inning."

I doubt this is the last we hear of this situation though ..

RP Dan Wheeler could not hold onto the lead for SP Jason Jennings in his Astros debut on Tuesday against the Pirates. Wheeler worked one inning, allowing three hits, two runs and one walk. He took the loss as the Pirates won 3-2.

No pressure in mop up duty. I'm sure he will excel at that role. :-D

This should be fun. Anyone else just think Lidge needs to get traded?

That seems like the best option right now. Some team would want him thinking that he can turn it around. It doesn't always work but he clearly is not going to be successful as a closer in HOU. Every time he blows a game the media, fans and everyone will get on him like white on rice.
