Philles make a splash; trade for Lidge

Philadelphia qcquired pitcher Brad Lidge and infielder Eric Bruntlett from the Houston Astros for pitcher Geoff Geary, outfielder Michael Bourn and third baseman Mike Costanzo.

This is a great move for the Phillies, which should allow Brett "Wife-beater" Myers to return to the starting rotation.

Lidge will probably not be the dominant guy he once was in Houston, but both ballparks are band-boxes, and Lidge should perform acceptably well.
