If Lidge does not find it soon Lidge won't be the closer if this keeps up good luck to the Yankees trying to beat Madson cause he'll be the closer he mesmerized the Yankees in both games........

The Yankees "own" an injured Lidge. He is clearly hurt, and he'll either get well, and return to form, or Madson will close.

The Phillies were not intimidated by the Yankees - it was exciting to play them in the new stadium, and with the spotlight on, but don't kid yourself - you *should* have lost all three games.

Love to play you in the World Series. Love to.

Mo hasn't slammed the door since 2000. Was he great of course. Is he great? only in Yankee legend. We are now in the broken bat home run era.

I think Wally has this column saved on his computer and just changes "Trevor Hoffman" to "Jonathan Papelbon," "Billy Wagner," "Joe Nathan," and now "Brad Lidge."
Lidge should get his knee repaired instead of showing how tough he is -- he'll be needed in October.
