Arthur Rhodes may be a scrub, but Cory Lidle is still a scab

Cory Lidle left town, and much like Billy Wagner last summer, criticized the Phillies clubhouse attitude.  Well Arthur Rhodes, who stinks just as much as Lidle this year, wasn’t too happy about it and fired back at Cory:

"He is a scab," Rhodes said. "When he started, he would go 51/3 innings
and (the bullpen) would have to win the game for him. The only thing
Cory Lidle wants to do is fly around in his airplane and gamble. He
doesn’t have a work ethic. After every start, he didn’t run or lift
weights. He would sit in the clubhouse and eat ice cream. … He
shouldn’t say that, he shouldn’t say anything like that because he is a
scab. He crossed the line when guys like me, Flash (Tom Gordon) and
(Mike) Lieberthal were playing. He is a replacement player."

Nothing like a bunch of scrubs complaining about each other.  Head over to Deadspin for some great comments.
