Could Madson return to Philly? (PHOTO: NJ.com) -Cody Ross is expected to ask for a three-year, $25 million deal as he becomes a free agent. The Phillies are thought to be interested in the 31-year-old corner outfielder, who hit 22 home runs with the Red Sox, but splits much better against lefties than righties. I’ve been a big proponent of Ross to the Phillies, as he would provide some much needed middle of the order power. I’ll be talking more about Ross at-length in the next week or so as to why I believe he fits. -David Herndon was picked up by the Blue Jays on October 23 after being let go by the Phillies. Now, he’s a Yankee, according to the Yankees website. He wasn’t going to be a part of the Phillies long-term plans, so they let him walk. If he can ever figure out that sinker… -Ryan Madson wants to be a closer. He would have been the closer for the Reds in 2012, but blew out his elbow and had Tommy John surgery. According to Bob Brookover of the Philadelphia Inquirer, Madson is being sought out for that role by several teams, so says his agent, Scott Boras. If that’s the case, the pipe dream of Madson coming back to Phillies cannot be a reality. If the market closes on Madson much the way it did prior to last season, he’d make a great eighth inning option.
