Brad Lidge has been named the National League Comeback Player of the Year.
Lidge carried a 1.95 ERA in 2008, converting all 41 of his save chances. This comes a year after recording a 3.36 ERA as a reclamation project in Houston, and two years after completely tailing off with a 5.28 ERA.
Finishing eighth in Cy Young voting in 2004, Lidge is a sure Cy Young contender this season.
A truly deserved win for a guy who climbed from mediocrity back to the top of his field in 2008.
