The Phillies have lost yet another member of their 2008 championship team: Brad Lidge has signed with the Nationals. Lidge, who will be forever remembered for getting the final out in the World Series, signed a 1 year deal for around a million dollars with the Nationals. There was some talk that Lidge would return to the Phillies but ultimately the Nats offered him more money and a bigger role in their bullpen.
Lidge will always be remembered in Philadelphia for his perfect 2008 seasons that ultimately led to the first title in the city in decades. While 2009 was rough and last season was filled with injuries, Lidge leaves under good terms and should get a standing ovation when he returns as a National this season.

However, he did save 27 games and had a 2.96 ERA for the Phillies...
The Nats signed Brad Lidge to a one-year deal, which really isn’t a big deal. But, because Lidge has 223 saves, people have heard of him, so it kind of is. Either way, when I hear “Brad Lidge” this is all that comes to mind:
Thankfully Mr. Pujols now plies his trade in the American League.
