Lights Out Lidge has been voted the Closer of the Year by the fans at MLB.com’s This Year in Baseball Awards, after going 41 for 41 in save opportunities, and adding seven more saves in the post season, thus going 48 for 48 for the year, before striking out the Rays’ Eric Hinske in the ninth inning for the final out in the fifth and final game of the 2008 World Series won by the Phillies 4 games to 1. Lidge would win the award in a land slide, receiving 44 percent of the votes cast to Mariano Duncan of the Yankees 22.7 percent.
Anyway, congratulations to Brad Lidge, and the Phillies in general, on winning another award, this time by the fans.
