Default Brad Lidge retiring

Hope his Pujols pitch has landed and all is forgiven between him and Pods.

So many closers can fade into nothingness, but not him, 2008 was his redemption year and he's got a ring to show for it. Nice career.

We should probably give him an appreciation thread. I, for one, appreciated his lousy pitching under pressure during the 2005 World Series.

I guess that taste is no longer there.

Congrats on a good career, Mr. Liege.

Agreed. I appreciate him giving up what now must be considered one of the most famous home runs in White Sox history.

That was huge for us since it pushed Roy Oswalt to game 3.

"Lidge has a new taste." He's now tasting retirement.

Eh. I think Fatty Clemens would have pitched the first WS game in franchise history regardless, and we tagged Oswalt for five runs anyway, so I don't think we caught any breaks in that regard.
