Lidge – Closing the Door 12 Times

There is something to be said for not worrying about the 9th inning anymore.  With the acquisition of Brad Lidge from the Houston Astros that is no longer a concern.  Brad has saved 12 / 12 games so far in 2008 which proves himself worthy of replacing Myers as the closer.  That is 100% in my play book . . . . .   He also has a 0.43 ERA as well as 24 strike outs due to his awesome slider fastball combo.  My only concern with Lidge would be that the Phillies are going to need to spend some $ to be able to keep him next year after his contract expires.  This years’s $6,350,000.00 is not going to cut it to keep him in Philly.  I would like to see Lidge be able to beat his Houston record of 123 saves, but only in the city of brotherly love.
