Brad Lidge will be out 3 to 6 weeks as he gets arthroscopic knee surgery. The procedure is tomorrow.
It looks as if Lidge should be back by Opening Day, but this clearly isn’t a good sign. That knee is in bad shape no matter how you slice it. It makes me wonder â€” after the Freddy Garcia debacle last season â€” how much the Phillies really investigate player health before making deals.
