Purpura drops some knowledge on Lidge

Scott Lauber, of Delaware Online, is worried about Brad Lidge. So naturally, who do you ask? Tim Purpura.

Here's the verdict:
"When he throws his slider for strikes, it's tough to hit him. Watching him from a distance, it seems like goofy things have happened. A bloop, a flare, a double down the line, and now, that changes the pressure gradient. Now, instead of throwing the slider down and away, it ends up over the heart of the plate."

Interesting. So, throwing your breaking ball for strikes. That's the key. Who knew?
