Madson Talks Heating Up?

8 Nov

Well, so they say.

It seems that the Phillies seem to value a few things heavier then their talks with Jimmy Rollins. Last night there were multiple reports that the Phillies are getting a little more “aggressive,” and honestly I feel they have to.

You can’t have three aces like Halladay, Hamels, and Lee going eight strong innings an have some goofball come out for the ninth and blow it…  These three deserve a legitimate, slam the door, closer.

Todd Zolecki reported last night that he gets the feeling that if the Phillies can’t work something out with Madson then they will look at names like Jonathan Papelbon, Heath Bell, and Joe Nathan.

That was reaffirmed by a few others in then know…

@SI_JonHeyman - #phillies also have had talks with papelbon. Seem determined to sign either pap or madson. like their style.
@jaysonst - #Phillies are making “strong push” to re-sign Ryan Madson. More to come inESPN.com Rumor Central.
@jcrasnick - Source tells ESPN.com that #Phillies talks with closer Ryan Madson are “advancing, but not complete.”
However, it’s worth noting that almost everyone has stated that the Phillies prefer Madson as their first choice, and that everyone else would be a secondary to him.

Ryan is also drawing some interest from the Red Sox, Nationals, Rangers and Marlins.  The Rangers have thoughts of putting Neftali Feliz into their starting rotation, and the Red Sox are unsure if they are going to be able to retain Jonathan Papelbon.  The Marlins and Nationals are basically linked to every free-agent out there, so I wouldn’t put too much stock into that.
