his era is also 9.15 and hes not just blowing saves, hes losing games. its brutal watching him...he must be having flashbacks of that pujols bomb a couple years ago.
It also could be the knee. Regardless, I thought LIdge actually looked pretty good today. The run allowed was mostly due to luck, and the fact that Lidge is horrible at holding runners on. The breaking ball is still there; his biggest problem is fastball location, but he was doing pretty good with that today.
