Lidle shuts up Russo

Great game by Lidle who proved his worth to the Yanks big time by going six strong innings in the blistering heat as the Yanks crushed Toronot 8-1 today. He made Cashman look like a star and Russo look like a jack ass. As you know Russo called Cashman a liar on the air when Brian said that Lidle was a deal breaker in the Abreu trade.
