Should Lidge Be Playoff Setup Man?




Lidge hasn't given up a run in his last nine outings and has allowed just two earned runs in 15.1 innings since returning while striking out 19 (while admittedly walking 12 and allowing 13 hits). Stutes has allowed 7 earned runs in his last 9 outings. I'm not going to bring up Bastardo because if there are key lefties due up in a setup situation he's the guy regardless of his kinda struggles lately. But I'm thinking Lidge could be a perhaps overlooked "lights out" weapon. I could envision a helluva boost on a straight up tangible as well as an emotional (mojo?) level if he was given some significant responsibility in the postseason.
