Reds, Madson talks "heating up"

Talks between closer Ryan Madson and the Reds are in the serious stage, according to people involved in the discussions. One person went so far as to say they are "heating up.''

The Reds are simultaneously talking to their incumbent closer Francisco Cordero, as well. They are seen as likely to sign one or the other.

The Rangers, Marlins and Angels are among teams that have considered Madson in recent days. He had a big year closing for the Phillies after taking over for Brad Lidge.

Madson was close to a deal with the Phillies earlier this winter. The Phillies are believed to have checked in again recently but that was seen as a long shot. The Phillies are more likely to sign Brad Lidge or Kerry Wood.

Cloesing? Really?

And please, why Lidge or Wood? I'd trust a rookie more than either of those two.
