For the better part of the last 3 decades I've been following the Phillies, which is an explanation for it seeming amazing.

Re: Brad Lidge - rut roh

Yeah, I can see how it's amazing to a Philly fan that they won, but at the same time "fringe playoff teams" win the WS quite often, especialy when they have the most dominant SP and closer in the post season.

edit: and I'd put the "quite often" as something like 1 out of 6 seasons.

Jesus Christ you guys are nits.

My point remains that Ed Wade sucks **** for a GM and gave away a world class closer for a piece of **** AA centerfielder.

JoA,

Are you classifying the Phillies as a "fringe playoff team"?

Well they weren't the Cubs, so I imagine so.

Re: Brad Lidge - rut roh

Hey, it's me again.

I definitely look like an idiot in this thread.

But I'm glad I look like an idiot. I was/am a huge Lidge fan and I was terribly upset when he went into the tank. Most relief pitchers with huge confidence issues never get it back. I'm really glad he did, even if he did it with a different team.

This is yet another example of how much I suck at making sports predictions.

It's awesome how this Brad Lidge thread might remain on 2+2 for the rest of his career.

Plz, this thread will last until 2+2 shuts down. 100 years from now someone is going to bump this thread. Sickest bump ever. Whoever you are, you are undoubtedly one awesome poster.
