How can you compare a starting pitcher and a closer?

wolf is coming off some sort of injury and hasnt been too sharp since... lidge has incredible stuff and should be the closer from here on out... with great K/9 numbers...

the race for Ws and Saves are both tight and i can move up or down in either category...

i think that lidge is safer because he wont get rocked... and he is a horse.... wolf is good but i think he's more of a health risk... but he is great and has been good all year... i dunno.... please help...

I like your reasoning, I just find it hard to say who's going to be better between two different positions. Lidge probably is more consistent and more of a sure thing, though.

Lidge over Wolf. He's a K machine and will put up better ratios. I don't even think it's close.

wolf is historically a guy who falters a bit in the 2nd half but run support will always be there and I think he will round into form shortly....Lidge on the other hand seems to be a prime candidate for overuse and may tire down the stretch. tough comparison either way.

Actually in 2002 I think he was dominant in the 2nd half. Last year he sucked. I guess we'll find out the true Wolf this year...

Absolutely stay with Lidge.

ajgnyaoui - are you like living in the cafe? Have you been kicked out of the house or something - because you've been in here and in every thread all week? just curious.
