Lidge: Feelin' groovy

We caught up with Brad Lidge today, and the report from the closer sounds positive. He said his knee feels better than it did even before he tweaked his knee last Saturday, forcing him to undergo arhtroscopic knee surgery Monday in Philly. Lidge said he thinks he's "on the early side" of the three-to-six week timetable doctors gave him for a full recovery. He still isn't ruling out a return by the start of the season.

"It's going good right now," Lidge said.

The 31-year-old righty has been playing catch at 65 to 70 feet for the past few days. He says he might be able to throw off a mound in about a week.

"There's really no pain at all right now," Lidge said. "Obviously, that's a great sign."
