Re: Cordero for Lidge?
Don't get me wrong, I'd like to get rid of Cordero -- but that's for the cost savings. I'm not sure what trading him for Lidge would accomplish. And I certainly don't have confidence in our coaching staff to fix whatever is wrong with Lidge.
Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.
