The DL Informer wrote:Add to that list, Brad Lidge and his right knee "inflammation." Curious that this is the same knee that he had two arthroscopic meniscus surgeries on (medial and lateral menisectomies). As I said back in February of last year, regarding Lidge, "…two meniscus surgeries in a short period of time is not a good recipe for the health of one’s knee going forward. This cartilage does not regenerate when a menisectomy is performed, so the structure of his knee will never be the same. Hence, he will always be more predisposed to generalized knee pain, tendonitis, and other maladies of the knee."
Thought I’d share this info with people. Madson may have the job a little longer than expected, and considering Madson’s history, which is not too good at closing, I believe, you might want to keep an eye on his backup.
Anyone who doesn't know who the DL Informer is, he is a physical therapist who does a lot of articles like this. I like to get his input on some of these injuries. Hes pretty darn good. At any rate, he seems to hint that this Lidge injury could end up being an ongoing thing this season... just his (professional) opinion though.
