    Brad Lidge hasn't gotten over the HR yet

    Just blew his first save opp of the year. I'm saying it now, fantasy players...pick up Wheeler while you can.

    Ugh. I have him in both of my leagues, and Wheeler in only one.

    Re: Brad Lidge hasn't gotten over the HR yet

    I added Wheeler as a free agent in both of my leagues. I am counting on Lidge to implode.

    After Wheeler takes over as closer I will use him in my active lineup and trade one of my stud closers for a stud hitter. Nice way to get a free star. That is my wicked little plan anyway.

    Do you know of any good keeper leagues in need of a dedicated new player?

    Anyone want to bet that Luke Scott terrorizes Reds' pitching all year? I'm not saying he's a great hitter or anything, just that hitters like Scott (A. Ramirez is another example, big hacking dudes) run roughshod over Reds' pitching.

    I've already predicted that Lidge will assume a permanent fetal position on May 12. Though perhaps I was being too conservative.

    I wonder if anyone has told Lidge that his team won the next game and they went to the series anyhow? Sometimes stating the obvious can do wonders for a guy

    I feel like shaking Brad Lidge and saying, dude, it is JUST BASEBALL.

    It isn't, but it really is, you know?
    There is no such thing as a pitching prospect.

    I think you might be M2. Lidge won't last that long if he doesn't soon find the 4-5 mph he's lost on his fast ball. Last season he was regularly hitting 97-98 and last night his fast ball was sitting at 93-94. He touched 96 mph once the entire inning last night.

    Reds Nd2 summed it up.

    I wouldn't doubt that he is hurt.

    He can't blow hitters anyway anymore, with having basically an average fastball.

    I'd trade for Brad Lidge in a heartbeat if the Astros ever decided it was time to cut bait with him.
