Phillies reliever Ryan Madson felt pretty stupid for breaking his big toe after kicking a chair. And now Mad Dog letting his anger get the best of him is going to cost him at least two months of action.
Madson will miss at least eight weeks after having toe surgery on Tuesday.
The 29-year-old setup man broke his right toe when he kicked a chair after blowing a save last Wednesday.
The right-hander had filled in as the team's closer in Brad Lidge's absence early this season. He was 1-0 with four saves and a 7.00 ERA in nine games.
In the meantime the Phillies will lean on Danys Baez, Jose Contreras and Chad Durbin to pick up the slack as the right-handed setup man.
