Lidge till 2011
by Scott Butler 7/7/08

So we got Lidge for 3 years with an option for a fourth...I think it was a great move. It sures up the back end of the pen and if he can keep his slider going it will pay off. Wanna hear his thoughts? I heard his interview with Mike Missanelli on the radio and I was really impressed. Here's the link: http://950espn.com/

It also seems pretty obvious that Myers is now probably on his way out, though. Maybe we can throw him in a trade to get a pitcher. Sabathia just went to the Brewers so that's not an option. http://mlb.mlb.com/news/article.jsp?ymd=20080707&content_id=3084786&vkey=trade2008&fext=.jsp&c_id=mlb

But maybe Erik Bedard. Personally I think chemistry means something and with many reports claiming that he isn't the best guy I would rather not make the deal, but Eaton showed tonight that we really need some pitching help.
