2009 Phungo #63 Ryan Madson
2009 Phungo #54 Brad Lidge
Brad Lidge has had a rough time as the closer this season after saving 48 consecutive gamese last season including the clinching game of the 2008 World Series. He has appeared in the 9th for the Phillies in their last 4 games and is likely unavailable tonight after blowing a save versus the Pittsburgh Pirates last night.
Ryan Madson had an opportunity to close for the Phils earliar this season and struggled somewhat. I hope that if the situation arises again that Madson is able to get the job done.
Tonight I am posting the Madson and Lidge cards from the 09 Phils set hoping to get the Phils some closer Mojo. Both Photos were taken during last years playoffs. The first card features Ryan Madson warming up during game one of the NLCS. Madson got Manny Ramirez to line out in a key at bat of the 1 run ball game and only gave up 1 hit during his inning that night.
The picture of Brad Lidge was taken during game two of the NLDS, The Brett Myers/Shane Victorino game - Lidge pitched a perfect innng versus the Brewers that day.
