Re: Brad Lidge - rut roh

You seem so unwilling to discount 3 innings in 2006 but are so willing to discount the 259 innings prior.

Re: Brad Lidge - rut roh

Okay, let's say he converts saves at an 87% save rate. That's much closer to "elite" and is, in fact, about Mariano's career save rate.

He saves 3 more games.

Awesome, same with the Astros 1-3 record when Clemens starts this year.

BTW, saying he's better than Izzy is like saying Lidge is great because he's better than a rec league player. You certainly aren't going to get any Cardinal fans upset because, unlike you, we've come to terms with the fact that our closer is unreliable.

That is very shortsighted. Maybe one pitcher has simply pitched in a bunch of three run games and given up one or two runs in those games but still received the save hence the high save percentage and high ERA.

Drayton needs to send Lidge, Ensberg, Lane, and "the succubus" Bagwell on a trip to a deserted island. Whomever lasts the longest gets to come back and wash the Astros' jockstraps.

A proven troll accusing me of being one? Laughable.

I think you're both right. Also, Aceshigh's assertion that ERA doesn't matter is awesomely wrong.

I love how the only thing keeping Houston out of last place in the division is the lowly Cubs. How shameful.

btw, in the future, if you think you've spotted a dead account, shoot me a pm, and if you're right i'll reward you with a title change or something along those lines.

In all fairness, Lidge seems fine against batters not named Aaron Miles...
