Lidge Has Third Surgery of Offseason

The Phillies have announced that Brad Lidge had arthroscopic (right) knee surgery on Wednesday. It is his third procedure this offseason. In early November Lidge had bone fragments removed from his throwing elbow and had a tendon repaired in his hip.

Head athletic trainer Scott Sheridan told the media that Lidge is expected to begin a throwing program in about 10 days. Lidge spent time on the disabled list last season due to issues with this same knee. It is possible that he could miss opening day, but Sheridan did not think it would push Lidge back very far.

Other writers and phans are all about reminding others that Lidge was not ready for opening day in 2008, but went on to be perfect in 48 save opportunites. Perhaps this is a sign of great things to come. Hopefully...

Harry Kalas Phorever...

Legendary broadcaster Harry Kalas passed away today. Harry collapsed while preparing to call today's game against the Washington Nationals. So many phans will feel as though we've lost a member of our own families. I feel as though I've lost a part of myself, but Harry enhanced my love of the great sport we call baseball and I will always carry that love, and Harry, in my heart. I've stated on this page before that I consider Harry more of a Phillie than anyone who wears the uniform as an active member of the roster. Harry Kalas was a Phillie. Moreso, Harry Kalas was the Phillies. Please share your thoughts and memories of Harry in the comments section, or send them to PhoulBallz (at) verizon (dot) net.
