08:17 AM ET 11.13 | Look for acrimony between agent Scott Boras and the Phillies over general manager Ruben Amaro Jr.'s tentative agreement on a four-year, $44 million extension for Ryan Madson falling apart before the Phillies signed Jonathan Papelbon for $50 million over four. Boras could do everyone a favor if he could get Madson more than $44 million from the Red Sox. They reportedly are pursuing him and Heath Bell even though Daniel Bard is an in-house option.

MLB is unhappy with Boras. He's a clown but he is good at what he does.

"Dark Vador"? Seriously? I mean...SERIOUSLY??

What's not to be unhappy with when you are talking about the Phillies? Phillies faithful are once again unhappy with them, but that other 99% of the country is thrilled.

The Red Sox are not going to give any closer 4 years, certainly not Madson or Bell. If they were willing to go 4, they would have retained Papplebon. My guess is they go after Nathan.

he did it to the braves, furcal was to be signed by the braves and the contract terms were all settle, but boras turn around and pull the deal with the dodgers, at the end the phillies got the last laugh!

the old sayin its, don't do what you won't like the others do to you!!

November 13, 2011  10:15 AM ET

bard could be the answer in red sox roster, should the red sox sign madson as a back up? they could sign him but for less money though!!

November 13, 2011  10:17 AM ET

it seems as the braves have calm down in their efforts to trade martin prado, and jurrjens, i guess nobody has offer them the right prospects!!

November 13, 2011  10:21 AM ET

the angels need at third baseman, but trumbo shouldn't be the player to play third, he already has a broken foot and to play that spot would give him more pression in his feet, plus this guy its about 220 lbs!!
