He was a jackass for not signing the extension in the first place.  He wasn't going to be successful in Philly anyway.

The report from Brad Lidge continues to be positive. We caught up with the Phillies closer a few minutes after he completed the next big step in his recovery from knee surgery -- facing live hitters -- and he said he thinks he could make his first Grapefruit League appearance of the spring by the middle of next week.
Lidge faced about 10 hitters and threw about 35 pitches, looking very sharp. He said he felt no pain in his knee, which he re-injured three weeks ago Saturday in a live batting practice session. Lidge had arthroscopic surgery Feb. 25 in Philadelphia.
"I honestly feel like I could go out in games right now and face guys but I know they obviously want to make sure I can work through drills and stuff and be able to field my position before I go out into a game," said Lidge, acquired in an offseason trade with Houston.
Assuming he builds up enough lateral strength to field, Lidge said he thinks he could pitch in a game Wednesday or Thursday. He'll definitely throw one more controlled practice session on Monday before working toward his first live appearance.
Today was the first time Lidge faced hitters since injuring the knee almost three weeks ago.
"It gets you back in the groove of game situations," Lidge said. "Throwing a bullpen, you can say that looked like a good pitch, but you don’t really know until you see a hitter react to it. That’s what you kind of need when you are facing hitters."

Lidge Takes Another Step

Brad Lidge's fastball sizzled toward home plate this morning at the Carpenter Complex.
Pete LaForest took a hack.
He made contact, but the ball jammed him so badly that the bat snapped in half. The barrel came to rest on the infield dirt between first and second base.
Only the handle remained.
Lidge threw live batting practice for the first time since he injured his right knee Feb. 23, which forced him to have arthroscopic surgery Feb. 25. Lidge is scheduled to throw in a simulated game Monday. He has a chance to pitch in a Grapefruit League game after that.
"It definitely felt good," he said. "I didn't feel my knee at all. It was good for me to face hitters, for sure. Most of my stuff felt pretty good. Mechanically, I'm probably not totally happy, but that should come really soon. Obviously, that's my first outing in a while. But the way the ball is coming out of my hand it feels really good. I think I should be able to catch up real fast.

Agreed.  His recovery is going all too well.  Something bad is about to happen to him.

Let's be clear.  The knee setback from the first throw off a mound was injury 1.  We're already looking for injury two.

That said, I would definitely take the under.

True, but an even more likely scenario is that he'll be demoted to setting up for Myers.


This is yet another reason the Phils are so lucky to have 5 guys that can start games.

Not crazy at all.  He'll get hurt in the final spring training game and won't be back until mid-June, at which point he throws a perfect 9th in his first appearance and re-injures himself in his 2nd appearance that knocks him out for a month.  Cholly says he'll be out until after the AS Break and you win on both accounts.
