B'oh. Hey, at least when Lidge blows 'em, he REALLY blows 'em. No simple homer, or a doubles and a single. Oh no. That's not Lidge's style. He got Furcal to ground out, then gave up a triple to Lofton. Walked Drew on four straight pitches after he got ahead 0-2, and walked Kent after that. Nomar wasn't chasing his sliders, so Lidge blew a couple fastballs by him. The third fastball landed about 420 feet away. Lidge is fine... it's only his first blown save and loss on the year, and though he's been shaky, so has everyone. It's never a good thing to lose games, but this one doesn't bother me too much. I mean, everyone in the media is blasting us because we're winning close games and losing blowouts. This is almost a wake-up call that it's not always as easy (or lucky) as it has been the last two weeks.

Tough loss, but let's win tomorrow.

A W is a W. An L is an L. If the W's are racking up, that's what gets you to the WS. Silly media. I guess they need something to talk about sometimes.
