Brad Lidge is having the worst season ever by a closer. That's not opinion, that's fact. Lidge 2009: 0-6, 9 blown saves, 7.33 ERA, 1.80 WHIP, 11 HR allowed. That's the worst ERA and 4th worst WHIP by a closer with 20+ saves in any season ever. I am appalled, I am livid, I am absolutely pissed!
Why the hell did Charlie Manuel use him for a 4th straight game anyway? That's a double stupid move. First time stupid for using him that many days in a row. Second time stupid for refusing to look at other options for closing games. This was the perfect opportunity to do so, because the excuse for "needs rest" was there.
