Sure, he could make Ryan Madson the closer. But Madson hasn't been consistently effective when used in that role. And then the Phils would still have to figure out who would pitch in the eighth instead. And what to do with Lidge.
No, the biggest problem is continuing the lose winnable games because of your unwavering loyalty to an ineffective pitcher. Literally anyone, including the not-able-to-pitch-the-9th Ryan Madson can do better than a 6.78 ERA.

Was Tommy pitching or playing shortstop for the Braves? Reds win, 2-1. - Red Reporter
GREAT work, Reds. Even though the Phillies had a pretty grim weekend, they didn't lose any ground in the NL East race.
