    It doesn’t take long for Phillies gossip to spread. Especially when it’s fan-related. When reliever Ryan Madson’s wife vented to a local blogger about the unrelenting fans, she probably didn’t realize she’d be on the receiving end of, well, unrelenting fans.
    At a charity event recently, Sarah Madson reportedly said, “I hate the fans,” saying she prefers to leave in the off-season. She took particular issue with the female fans who give their phone numbers to the reliever.

    It wasn’t 12 hours before the news made it to Deadspin.
