The Phillies bull pen (we hope) can breathe a sigh of relief. Brad Lidge is back and will most likely take back his role as closer. To make room, Antonio Bastardo got sent down to AAA Lehigh Valley
Ryan Madson was once again shaky in the role, blowing his last two save opportunities.
This is excellent news. Reports have said Lidge’s velocity and command were back and he said he felt really good. His knee and arm are fine and he feels like he’s back to 2008 form.
