Brad Lidge Gets Rolled In Cy Young Voting

Sphere: Related Content

Brad Lidge was a combined 48 for 48 in save opportunities this year yet only managed fourth in the Cy Young voting that was won by Tim Lincecum of the Frisco Giants.

Lincecum is a nice pitcher even though as starters go C.C. Sabathia should have won it but Lidge was lights out this year. A starter comes in and has a chance to get in the groove. Not so a closer who comes in many times with the game close and victory on the line. It's pressure-filled to say the least and Lidge was flawless. He blew zero saves.

I guess I'll just have to let the World Series trophy suffice but Lidge was wronged big time.
