    Ryan Madson 4 yrs 44 million????????

    Phillies and Madson are supposedly close to 4yr deal for 44 million with year 5 option at 13 million. Really???? Ryan I have been a closer for a year Madson get 11 mil per for 4 years????? Do the Phillies know they don't have to offer ridiculous contracts to any player they have called Ryan?

    If this is accurate what does Paps get? Buehrle? Wilson?

    Edit: After editing the spelling of Buehrle 3 times I worry about having to type it that often if the Reds signed him. I think I could live with the problem.

    1 million dollars less than the 4 year deal the Reds signed Cordero to 4 years ago. Seems like a steal.
    My dad got to enjoy 3 Reds World Championships by the time he was my age. So far, I've only gotten to enjoy one. Step it up Redlegs!

    He picked a great year for his HR/FB% to drop dramatically.

    2009 10.3% 77.1IP
    2010 8.2% 53.0IP
    2011 3.7% 60.2IP
    Career 10.4% 630IP

    2011 was his career year by far and he still only touched a 1.7 fWAR. ionocoach

    That's what nicknames are for, people whose names are impossible to remember how to spell because they never look right no matter how you spell them.

    If there's such a thing as a reliever deserving $10M+, Madson has to be up there as among the most deserving. He just hasn't gotten the attention of more established "closers".
    Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.

    He may not have been a closer for years, but he's been filthy for years. I'm pretty sure the Phils would take him straight up over Papelbon. They know what they're getting from Madson.
    ". . . acquiring J. Blanton from Oakland for, apparently, Bailey/Cueto, Votto and a lesser prospect. I do it in a second . . . The Reds' equation this year is simple: Make Matt Belisle your #3 starter . . . trade for Blanton, win 85 or more, be in the mix all summer." - Paul Daugherty, Feb. 8, 2008

    I'm a little surprised considering how many free agent closing options there are.

    As long as the Reds don't see this and think they have to 'overpay' for a closer again, I am fine with it.

    I know someone with the Phillies and he told me what really happened with Madson. Don't believe everything you read.
