Walker is a better option. Moyer is a better option. Having Pedro start Game 4 and making Happ your closer is a better option. I'm not joking even a little.

There is no worse option on the roster than having Lidge as your closer. None. Lidge shouldnt be within 10 spots of the playoff roster.
I know what you're asking yourself and the answer is yes. I have a nick name for my penis. Its called the Octagon, but I also nick named my testes - my left one is James Westfall and my right one is Doctor Kenneth Noisewater.

I would hope that something will change now because of how tonight unfolded. He gets Pence with 3 sliders. Good. Gets Blum down 0-2 and then cant get him out. Gives up a hit to COSTE OF ALL PEOPLE. The a walk to Michaels, then an out then Matsui. He gets the goddamn lead off man and still cant get it done.

I thought he'd turned a corner too, getting his ERA under 7

There's gotta be some number of blown saves where they MUST think. "Ok, time to get this #$!&@ out of this role." If it's not 10, well then they're insane.

This is what just drives me crazy. Who cares about "closer"! Its just one friggin inning. ANY Major League pitcher should be able to pitch a single inning and get through it a good 90% of the time. Stick ANY pitcher we have out there and he would be better. Lidge is not a major league pitcher right now. 3 outs! Stop playing these stupid roles. Use the best pitcher going at the time. My god, I hate Charlie right now. I hate these stupid "rules of use" and loyalty crap. What about loyalty to us? Spending enormous amounts of time following these guys. Loyalty to the other players as well! Play to god damn win not babysit people making 12 million. If you suck at your job anywhere else for a whole year they are going to replace you. Ugh. I'm going to go cut myself to relieve the pain.

Also worth pointing out this is yet another game where Howard came up huge at the perfect time, and Lidge had to go and ruin it.

i didnt catch any of the game or view the box score. i heard on the radio bradley allowed a 2-run single to blow the lead. it's probably best i dont know who hit it.

think it was worth a shot to see if lidge could get it together. considering he had a historic season last year, he has the highest K-rate in MLB history, and we dont have a clear-cut replacement.

but it's time to pull the plug.

hint: he missed time in 2008 due to an "ailment" not more painful than watching brad lidge pitch.
