      Expectations are usally under estimated.

        He should be prepped for season-ending surgery by the season opener.

            Yes, Judway, as you have correctly surmised, Gillick's bad work gives me sustenance and gets me through the day. What else keeps me going? Judway's astute assessments of the Phillies year in and year out.

              Lidge will be out 4-6 weeks with surgery. That means he misses ST and will likely not be ready for the regular season on Opening Day. However, he should be fine by mid April (counting a rehab assignment).

                  That wasn't a bad trade. It was horrific. In the front office's quest to keep searching for those low budget, high risk/high reward players, they dealt away a legit slugging prospect and a serviceable releiver for a broken down closer on a one year contract, a guy they knew had health concerns on a one year contract. Its Garcia part two. Theres no way he's 100% by mid April, if mid May. Knee injuries are hard on pitchers. They change their whole delivery. By the time the season is done, the only consolation will be we got a slick fielding utility guy from the deal.

                  Ed Wade is in Texas, laughing his ass off. Do you supposed those lame deals were entirely his fault while he was here? Wade's gone, but they still make deals like Garcia, Barrajas, Lidge, Eaton, Mesa, etc etc.. dealt away everything they got in the Thome deal by now plus extra.

                      How do you get hurt throwing batting practice, let alone on the first pitch?

                      It looks like he won't miss more than a handful of games, which is good, but going into the season with two surgeries on the same knee and no spring training isn't a positive. I've been optimistic that Lidge's numbers last year were a sign of a turn around and that a change of scenery will help but the chance of a lingering injury makes it harder than it already is to think this way.

                      Hopefully a healthy Mathieson will live up to the expectations the team had for him a couple of years ago and give us a little insurance behind Lidge. It would be even better if we didn't need it, but we'll have to wait to see if this is the case. The closer spot is definitely the one I'm most nervous about heading into this season.
