AP reports that Phillies closer Brad Lidge wants to forget his awful 2009: "A year after converting all 48 save chances, Lidge led the major leagues with 11 blown saves last season. He had surgery to repair his right elbow in November and right knee in January. Now as spring training is about to start, the 33-year-old is confident he can regain the form that helped the Phillies win the 2008 World Series. "I probably won't look back and dwell," Lidge said Wednesday. "Now it's about being myself again, going to my bread and butter and getting things done." Spring training will allow Lidge to work on his mechanics, which could be key for the Phillies. "We, obviously, want to get back to the World Series, but more than that we want to be considered one of the best teams ever in the National League," Lidge said. "But that's not the motivating factor. The motivating factor was that we didn't like how last season ended.""
