Dobbs in lineup, Lidge says he's ok

Good afternoon from Citizens Bank. Ah, the 3:40 start. Day games allow me to go out to dinner; night games give me time to sleep in. Fox games eat up the entire day.  Thanks, Rupe.

But it’s a nice day for a ballgame. Spoke with Brad Lidge a little while ago, and he said that he’s healthy, just trying to recover his mechanics after missing time due to knee inflammation. Greg Dobbs, who Charlie Manuel said was not as sharp as usual because of limited at-bats, starts at third today.
