Brad Lidge has surgery


Phillies closer Brad Lidge had arthroscopic surgery on his right knee on Wednesday.  Something to do with “loose bodies and meniscal debridement.” I hate it when that happens.

He’ll start throwing again in ten days or so.  It’s unclear if he’ll be ready to go by Opening Day.  If he can’t go, the Phillies will have to find someone else to blow saves for them until he’s back to 100%.
