Interesting....apparently Miller was his go-to guy last night.Wolf6151 said:In a post game interview Garner said that Lidge is still his go to guy.
Why do you think he will retire early?ShadMan said:If I didn't think he was going to retire in the next few years, I'd say he is a certain future Hall of Famer.
well the "fat" comment was a joke. and he used to be lets just put it like this "on the heavy side" he is atleast 6'2" if not more. if i remember correctly he was a pretty decent guy in school and i hear he is now too although i have not talked to him since about 1993. as for lidge pitching i might take him over pujols also we have not seen him hit off of lidge and who would know lidge better then his team mates? might be to easy lolShadMan said:Berkman isn't fat, but the build of his body makes it look like he is. I'm not sure of his exact height, but I would say he is around 6'2". And yes, he played baseball in High School. There is a statue of him in New Braunsfels. I believe he holds pretty much every batting title at the high school if I remember correctly.
I agree that Berkman is underrated, though. He is one of the top 5 hitters in professional baseball. If I could have any hitter in the league, and anybody but Lidge was pitching, I would want Berkman at the plate with the tying run on base. If Lidge is pitching, you've gotta go with Pujols. LMAO!
