Madson hold up might be linked to upcoming CBA

Tim Brown of Yahoo Sports reports that the Madson contract might have fallen apart because of the upcoming BCA.  Brown reports "Multiple reports (including Yahoo! Sports) this week suggested Madson and the Phillies were close on a four-year, $44 million contact and that there remained only some conversation about a vesting fifth-year option."  Brown continues to say "Phillies general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. apparently took the framework of the deal to president Dave Montgomery, who refused to sign off."
