That last hit raised his BA from .230 to .242. A few more games like this and he will be at his last season avg very soon

The back end of this pen is just plain dirty. Its turning into a 6 inning game.

Agree.

She's no Kaitlin Monte but she looks pretty good.

Congrats on getting shut out tonight, Chicago. We have a nice consolation prize for you, tomorrow night you get to face Justin Verlander!

the White Sox are a carbon copy of the Tigers (except the south-siders have Abreu).

both teams pitching staffs are a mess

Like watching Lidge-Dotel-Wagner close games out.

I was about to post this.

What were Lidge/ Dotel/ Wagner's best numbers over the course of a season? Can't imagine it's better than what Harris/ Pressly/ Osuna are putting up right now.

Not only are those three lights out but Rodon (4 hits and 1 ER since 4/29) and James seem to have come around (3 hits 0 ER since April 30).

Oh yeah...We'll get Joe Smith back eventually.

I think yall are misremembering. Lidge-Dotel-Wagner was only a thing for one season. It was mainly Dotel-Wagner for several years. Then when Wagner left, Lidge eventually beat out Dotel for the closer spot and Dotel moved on. Then Pujols happened and Brad became great again with the Phillies.

Qualls, wheeler and Lidge were also very good for a few years.

Not misremembering. Just highlighting that season is similar to this one as you felt good if you had a lead after 6.

Yep, and in that one season, Lidge wasn't even that good. He didn't post a sub-3 ERA until after they both left and he got the full-time closer role. Lidge really only gave us two good seasons.

Lidge only pitched 6 games in 2002 and wasn't effective, and Dotel was traded in mid-2003 in the Beltran trade. By the end of 2003, Wagner was gone, too. They never even had a full season together.

It was fun looking back at some of the names on those teams, though.

  • In 2002, Wagner and Dotel were our entire bullpen, the rest were trash. Our rotation was pretty average as well and that's why we were around .500...
  • In 2003, our bullpen was very effective and had the trio for the first half of the year (but Lidge wasn't dominant yet). The rotation was still below-average (anchored by Oswalt).
  • In 2004, Lidge was the only real bright spot for our bullpen outside of the emergence of Backe. Thankfully we shored up our rotation with Clemens and Pettite and found a way to play well until.
  • In 2005, our rotation carried us through that crazy run. Our offense was below average, but with three starters under 3 ERA, then the bullpen combo of Qualls-Wheeler-Lidge and we had the hands-down best pitching staff in the league. Too bad our offense was so abysmal...
