Clark and Yeota are running hot. They'll regress back to normalcy.

Re: Brad Lidge - rut roh

It's a shame this thread starts in 2006.

Would be amazing if it started in College when he was a starter and had a major arm surgery at Notre Dame (first "ruh-roh"). Then recovered and came back and battled his way into the majors, and was the 7th inning guy back when Dotel was pitching the 8th, and Wagner the 9th for the Astros. Wagner leaves, and Dotel closes and Lidge moves to 8th inning guy. Dotel leave and Lidge becomes fulltime closer I think in 2003 or 2004 and crushes. Just dominates like crazy through 2004 and playoffs, and 2005 regular season. Then the 2005 post-season failures, and then this thread started in early 2006.

Re: Brad Lidge - rut roh

From Joe Posnanski's CNNSI story of baseball this decade. The signature play...


SIGNATURE PLAY: Albert Pujols' homer off Brad Lidge in Game 5 of the 2005 NLCS
This was a decade filled with signature plays -- Jeter's flip to get Jeremy Giambi at the plate, Jeter's home run after midnight in the 2001 World Series, A.J. Pierzynski's run to first, Ortiz's homer to win Game 4 of the 2004 ALCS, Curt Schilling's bloody sock performance. But the singular moment happened when the singular player of the decade, Pujols, faced one of the great relievers of the decade, Lidge, with two outs in the ninth in Game 5 of the 2005 NLCS. There were two men on, the Cardinals trailed the Astros by two, and Pujols hit one of the longest home runs in postseason history. That home run was so massive; it was one of those moments that made people all across America jump out of their recliners. And dead silence fell over the Houston ballpark. In the end, the Astros won the series. Lidge's career crumbled for a time, and then he re-emerged. And Pujols was the player of the decade. It was all there

Re: Brad Lidge - rut roh

Lidge promptly came in and gave up a HR to Barajas last night in a game that was already out of reach. I can see this being a real good season for him.
