It's a mystery to me. My gut says that Dotel has been overworked as of late so they put in Lidge, but you know Jimy he might have made the change and not told us. Lidge have up a lead off hr. so he wasn't perfect.

From Rototimes.com -

"Jun. 22 Despite allowing a leadoff homer in the ninth inning, Brad Lidge (P) Hou recorded his second save of the season Tuesday night. Lidge was closing out the game because Octavio Dotel was unavailable after pitching three of the last days."

Sounds like Dotel's still the man
