Personally, I like Madson at the back end of the bullpen, especially since he's looked brilliant at times this year in the 8th inning set-up role. In 29 games so far this year, Mad Dog has an ERA of 2.22 and decent strikeout/walk ratio of 31 to 9. In 28.1 innings, he has yet to allow a home run.
To take Lidge's place on the roster, the Phils selected the contract of veteran catcher Paul Bako from AA Reading. The addition of Bako will allow Chris Coste to be used as a right-handed bat off the bench. Bako will be card #40 in the 2009 Chachi set . . . as soon as I can find a decent (and recent) picture of the guy.
