Maybe a change of scenery will help him out:

The St. Petersburg Times suggests that the Devil Rays may be interested in Brad Lidge.
Beat writer Marc Topkin lists Rocco Baldelli, Jason Hammel, J.P. Howell, Andy Sonnanstine and Shawn Riggins as players who might interest the Astros. Former Houston general manager Gerry Hunsicker is in Tampa Bay's front office now and the two teams completed the relatively big trade involving Aubrey Huff last season.
Finally The Rock has come New York City!!

Lidge is not done - I'd be picking him up on WW. CBS:

News: RHP Brad Lidge lost the closer role to RHP Dan Wheeler but the demotion might not last long. Manager Phil Garner is intent on seeing Lidge return to form. "I do not believe that this is a long-term deal," Garner said. "I believe that Brad Lidge will get back." Wheeler entered Tuesday's game with a career mark of 23 2/3 scoreless innings over 21 appearances against Chicago but allowed two runs and four hits in the 4-2 victory. And guess who was warming up in the bullpen as the Cubs were rallying? Lidge. Wheeler was struggling with his control and Garner said he was ready to call on Lidge. "If we would have needed to do it, he was going to come in. That's kind of the scenario that I had painted," Garner said. "I didn't expect it to happen today, but if I've used all the guys to get to that point and we have a glitch, then I'll use Lidge."
