It is the smart move IMO. Keep Madson where he has had success. Less change is better.
Lidge has a 12.5M option for next year (with a 1.5M buyout) so this year is big for him. Oswalt also ahs a 16M option for 2012 with a 2M buyout. Add in the expiring 11.5M from Ibanez, 8.5M from Rollins, 9.5M from Hamels, 4.5M from madson, 2.75M from Baez, 2.45M from Kenderick, 1.5M from Schneider, 1.6M from Gload, 1.35 from Romer, and 1.175 from Francisco.
We have alot of interesting decisions to make after this season. The #1 thing is lock up Hamels IMO, the figure out the closer spot.
