Enough already! Charlie I don’t wanna hear your bumbling second grade eduation vocabulary about how this total “has been” Brad Lidge is your closer!

He caught lighting in a bottle in 2008 and thank you!

Ever since he absolutely “STINKS.” You are telling me nobody can do a better job at finishing out a game? Guess he has photos of you doing something illegal hidden somewhere. Why else would you put that absolute bum out there over and over and expect a save?

Charlie get with the program…for Heavens sake let a starting eight player close a game if you wanna just throw away wins left and right!

    After they fought back and Ruiz had that clutch 9th inning 2 out hit to take the lead, Lidge comes in and breaks our back! As an everyday starter I’d be pissed off frankly at Lidge. To hell with loyalty at this point. I don’t get Charlie.
    People love Lidge for that amazing 2008 run like myself. Do people forget he had the worst record for a closer in the history of baseball in 2009? And may I add he wasted Feliz’s game tying homer in the 8th inning of game 3 or 4 of the World Series with the Johnny Damon 2 out single and double stolen base debacle.
    Bottom line is “ENOUGH ALREADY!” Charlie like the White Sox manager Ozzie just said after his closer had a meltdown, “we are going closer by committee.”

    Agreed Schmitty. Lidge needs to be removed from the closer role. They’re just throwing games away when they hand him the ball with a small lead. Let Contreras do it for now, and start looking for a real closer. It’ll be a short playoff run unless either Contreras or Madson step up, or they pick up a quality closer.

    Last night was awful!
