It sure looks like the Phillies made the right decision to sign Jonathan Papelbon now.
According to John Fay of the Cincinatti Enquirer, Ryan Madson will have Tommy John surgery. He says the "ligament was torn off the bone." Ouch.
Could Ruben Amaro Jr. have known something back in early January? Scott Boras says the Phillies backed out of the deal, which Rube denied. Maybe The Big Poker knew something the rest of the baseball world didn't.
Just a thought.
