PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – Brad Lidge said that this year’s Washington Nationals is the “most talented team [he’s] ever been on.” Yes, he said “ever.”

In a video on the Washington Nationals website, Lidge said, “probably the most talented team I’ve ever been on, and I’ve been on some great teams. So very impressed with that. And, very young and very exciting.”

Is Lidge just being positive about his new team, or is this another in a series of shots the Nationals have taken at stoking the flame of rivalry with the Phillies? What do you think?
