Bride Lidge's Contract With Nationals Worth $1 Million Plus Incentives, According To Report

The Washington Nationals have signed veteran reliever Brad Lidge to a one-year contract, and they apparently got him on a pretty good value, according to this report.

I was a little skeptical about this deal when it was announced because the Nationals don't really need someone like him in their bullpen. But for only $1 million plus incentives, it is a risk worth taking. Worst case scenario is the money is a sunk cost. But if Lidge can stay healthy and find his pitch again, then the Nationals would be getting a player that could help them put together one of the best bullpens in the major leagues. Certainly a risk worth taking.
