Here is Rich Hofmann's view on the Ryan Madson signing, posted yesterday on his blog, The Idle Rich, at www.philly.com/theidlerich .   NOBODY WILL need to hold a benefit for Ryan Madson. If reports are accurate, he is in the process of doing a 1-year, $8.5 million deal with the Cincinnati Reds. He is safely in the 1 percent. Again, no tears. But how did this happen? How did he and agent Scott Boras miscalculate the market so badly? I still would love to know how the whole Phillies thing went down.

Forget about the plan to possibly keep Ryan Madson as the Phillies' setup man. Not that there was much of a chance before, and certainly not now, since it appears he will be closing in Cincinnati. But that doesn't mean Phillies fans should expect to see Kerry Wood wearing red pinstripes on the mound at Citizens Bank Park this year. Multiple reports had Madson agreeing to terms on a one-year deal totaling anywhere from $8.5 million to $10 million. Madson's agent Scott Boras was unavailable for comment.

This time a year ago, the names Vance Worley and Michael Stutes were barely on the Phillies' radar. Even by the end of spring training, Worley had long been ticketed for triple-A Lehigh Valley while Stutes was teased with a trip north to Citizens Bank Park merely for two exhibition games before he, too, was an IronPig. Then they combined for 1932/3 major-league innings in 2011, quickly gaining the trust of manager Charlie Manuel and pitching coach Rich Dubee. Vance became Vanimal and Michael became Mike.

IT SEEMS AS if the potential landing spots for closer Ryan Madson are continuing to dwindle. Angels general manager Jerry Dipoto told the Los Angeles Times that it is "very, very unlikely" that the team would acquire Madson. "What I'll say with some degree of certainty is that our most significant acquisitions have already been made," Dipoto said. "We're trying to add depth, and in a perfect world, we'd like to find another guy to join Jordan Walden, Scott Downs and LaTroy Hawkins to help with those last nine outs.

The thought of Ryan Madson ever accepting arbitration and returning to Philadelphia on a one-year contract was enough to elicit a hearty scoff from Scott Boras. "Ryan was always going to remain a free agent," Boras said last month at the winter meetings in Dallas. It's just that Madson probably never envisioned remaining a free agent this long. Once the closers carousel spun with the Phillies' signing of Jonathan Papelbon in November and (mostly) stopped with Boston's acquisition of Andrew Bailey in a trade last week, Madson was still without a spot.

WITH A LITTLE help from the fire department, Phillies righthander Vance Worley arrived to give back to the community Saturday night. Worley and manager Charlie Manuel came to Citizens Bank Park on the back of a fire truck to participate in the Phillies' annual Holiday Tree Lighting Ceremony and Food Drive. Worley was welcomed by hundreds of excited fans who braved the frigid weather to catch a glimpse of the rising star. "Obviously, the fans here are great," said Worley, still sporting his signature mohawk.

DALLAS - The dream of a bullpen with Jonathan Papelbon as the closer and Ryan Madson as his setup man with closer experience officially ended Wednesday night. Scott Boras, the agent for Madson, said his client declined the offer of salary arbitration that would have allowed the 31-year-old pitcher to remain with the Phillies on a one-year contract. "Ryan was always going to remain a free agent," Boras said. Jimmy Rollins and Raul Ibanez also declined arbitration by the midnight deadline.

DALLAS - If Charlie Manuel is worried about heading into a season without Jimmy Rollins at shortstop, he did a good job of hiding it yesterday. "I think there is a big chance Jimmy is going to be back with us," the Phillies manager said. "I think it's going to get done . . . Right now, that's our A-plan. " His optimism is not unfounded. While the Phillies were reported to be considering alternate plans on Monday, the vibe in the front office's suite here at the Hilton Anatole was noticeably different yesterday evening.
