Dotel has more experience, but Lidge has better stuff. It'd depend of Lidge could handle the job or not.

They're both basically the same now; great K pitchers without any closer competition and without great setup men. Dotel has Rhodes, and Lidge has Miceli. Miceli has actually looked pretty good form what I've seen. Rhodes was goor 2 and 3 years ago, but I doubt he'll be anything special. Lidge is a better K pitcher I think, especially now that he'll only have to pitch one inning as opposed to 2 on occasion, so I'd give the nod to Lidge. You really can't go wrong though.
