According to Phillies.com, Ryan Madson and the Phillies have come to an agreement, in which Madson now accepts the Phils’ earlier offer of a three-year, $12 million contract, thus avoiding arbitration. Either Madson has just realized that the Phillies’ deal was the best that he was going to get for a while, or he has just told his agent Scott Boras to go stuff it and accept the deal. Either way, it’s good news for the Phils as they now have their ‘Bridge to Lidge’ around in their bullpen for another three years. I am so happy.
Oh, and Scott Boras, I hope Madson did tell you to stuff it, you bad for baseball agent.
Now I do the happy dance. Three down, five to sign.
