What don't you understand, quick? If a guy gets you zero stats in a specifice scoring cat then he is useless. He was drafted for HOLDS and has come up empty while other good RPs are getting them.
I can't wait around while I fall in this stat. I gotta move.
I think he doesn't understand why you would panic and make a decision based on 2-3 weeks worth of information.
So far Lidge hasn't even had a hold opportunity. The typical holder gets between 30-40 opportunities a year. At this stage, Lidge should have 3-4 hold opportunities, but the Astros have had a lot of blowouts and have been behind in the close games.
It'll even out over the course of the year. He's pitching well with 12.5 Ks per 9 innings, a 0.69 WHIP and a 1.02 ERA.
Good advice---wait 6-8 weeks before you make a move. Do you see the Yanks trying to waive A-Rod? Good teams recognize that it takes time to see where your team is really strong and where it is really weak.
