I guess Charlie Manuel thought the Washington Nationals would be an easy team for Brad Lidge to record an ego boosting save.
Staked to a 5-3 lead, his control went awry against the Nationals mighty lineup and Ryan Madson had to come in to close.
He showed up with the bases loaded, one out and had to get Ryan Zimmerman and Adam Dunn.
He got out of it and for the Phillies' sake I hope has been installed permanently.
There's no way Lidge can be anything other than a mop up man in post season.
