Free-agent reliever Brad Lidge has informed his agents, Rex Gary & Jim Turner, that he plans to retire. One of the all-time class acts.

Phenomenal athlete. Could be HOF worthy. It will be close.

No way he is close to HOF worthy with 225 saves and a career 3.54 career ERA.

Was a good closer in his hey day but his signature moment will always be that home run he allowed to Pujols in the 05' NLCS.

Sarcasm. He sucks.

Sarcasm. He sucks.

He didn't suck either...

He was a good closer who had inconsistency and injury issues that derailed his career.

MLB Network is doing Baseball Seasons right now, and they just did the 2005.


Lidge vs Pujols just happened

He was a key part of the 08 title run with his perfect season. Thanks for the memories :clap:

Was very very good in Houston.

Then he gave up that HR to Pujols in the playoffs.

Was inconsistent after that.

Was great again in 2008, actually perfect and helped the Phillies win the World Series.

Then in 2009 he lost his saves streak, was pretty much the beginning of the end.

Declined and declined.

Absolutely horrible last year.

Now retirement.

Very interesting career to say the least, thank you for 2008 Brad.

Sounds like some need to have their sarcasm detectors in for service.

Seriously, he had his moments and had a respectable career, but Pujols happened and that was that.

He was part of one of my most fondest sports memories. Sitting at the stadium when Scott Podsednik (of all people) launched a HR into right center field winning game 2 of the World Series.

Yeah seriously. His signature moment for me is striking out Hinske in game 5 part 2. Thanks for the memories!

I was always a fan of Lidge. Had a really solid career and was great with Houston. Lost track after 2005 but when he rebounded, he was great.
