And because I am such a big fan, I wanted you to NOT pitch for the Phillies because I thought you were going to embarrass yourself.
Could you blame me? The 2006-2008 model of Pedro Martinez was hardly a world beater!
But here you are... being that wonderful late season acquisition. You cost the Phillies NOTHING and are giving the team at least a #3 starter.
And today you looked like an ace. 8 innings of shut out ball against a big league team? OK, they were the Mets... but still it is technically a major league team.
It's 219 wins and counting and a playoff start is in the bag.
I underestimated you.
I won't do THAT again.
I just hope that Pedro pitches in Fenway in the World Series, and that Lidge blows a Pedro lead.
