BLT is Finally Back

The long-awaited return of Brad Lidge Time was rewarded yesterday with the National League Comeback Player of the Year Award. I'm sure that's a huge trophy, maybe even a meat tray similar to what the women get at Wimbledon. It's been a long journey back from that soul-eating moment in October 2005.

Lidge was actually crazy good this season, blowing none saves...none. As much as we like to make fun of Lidge, he gets props for at least picking himself back up, putting on a pink jumpsuit, and running through the streets of New York, while Doc rides a bicycle in front of him. Wait, who we talking about again?

When I read Lidge and Cliff Lee won this year's CPOY Award, I thought, "that's nice, but not as impressive as Josh Hamilton and Jon Lester's comebacks last year."

Wrong. Wrong!

Carlos Pena and D'meathook won it last year. They were good and all, but looking back: oops.

(I apologize to those who just threw up, but I'm only the messenger.)

PS. Once more for good measure, as I know Sir enjoys Brad Ausmus' reaction:

PSS. And the video too. "Collld-blooded..."
