Some guy in my league has Lidge, Cordero, Wheeler. I feel bad for anyone who took Lidge over KRod. A 4th/5th round pick wasted on a guy that's essential to a specific cat. ouch
Well, so far Lidge in the 4th round isn't working out very well. He was easily worth that pick the last two seasons though. 260k in two seasons from a closer? I don't think he's a single-cat guy when he'll get you as many strikeouts as some starters.
In my league, Podsednik went before Lidge. So did a bunch of second-tier hitters like Aram. Anyone pick can turn out to be a bust, but there was nothing going into this season that would have hinted Lidge wasn't a great pick in the 45-60 range.
