Todd Zolecki tells us that Phillies erstwhile closer/set-up guy Ryan Madson will miss the next eight weeks after undergoing surgery on Monday to repair a broken right big toe, sustained after Madson kicked a chair after blowing a Save on Thursday in San Francisco.
This is obviously very bad news, as Madson is the Phillies' best (only decent?) relief pitcher.
The Phillies' bullpen, as currently constructed:
Brad Lidge, Jose Contreras, Danys Baez, J.C. Romero,
Antonio Bastardo, David Herndon, Chad Durbin, Nelson Figueroa
I don't feel so good.
