Ryan Madson has suffered his worst blown save yet: With a chance to be close to full strength in the bullpen with the return of closer Brad Lidge, Madson has been placed on the 15-day DL with a broken toe suffered when he kicked a chair venting after blowing the save at AT&T Park. Assistant GM Scott Proefrock told Delco-Times scribe Ryan Lawrence that his recovery could take more than 15 days. So now, the Phils are back to square one and have recalled recently demoted lefty Antonio Bastardo from Triple-A Lehigh Valley, just when the bullpen appeared to be getting back to full strength. One always wondered about Madson's head, which some would say has gotten in the way of the right-hander becoming a fine closer. Now we know. Next time, Dog, channel that aggression into your fastball instead of that 87-mph mess you've been throwing. The Phillies, who must have thought they moved on from Brett Myers, must be getting tired of his best buddy's act. Meanwhile, the short-handed Phillies gear up for their biggest series yet: a three-game set with the vengeful, poised, and mostly healthy, New York Mets. Discuss it here.
