33-year old righty closer Brad Lidge was simply awful for the Phillies last season. He pitched in 67 games (0 starts) for the Phillies last season and he was 0-8 with 31 saves, a 7.21 ERA and a 1.81 WHIP. This season he started late because he was rehabbing from some surgery. He is off to a good start for the Phillies in 2010. He has pitched in 13 games (0 starts) for the Phillies so far this season and he is 0-0 with 5 saves, a 3.27 ERA and a 1.18 WHIP. He has whiffed 16 batters while only walking 3 in 11 innings which is promising. The Phillies can’t afford to be blowing games late this season like they did last season because the Braves and Mets are for real in 2010.
