Overeager Apprentice

If I discard a card with Madness, and the discard is via Overeager Apprentice do I have the Apprentice generated mana available at the time the discarded card is in the so called "play from madness zone"? I'm thinking No because costs are paid before the benifit is realized but I wanted to be sure.

The Apprentice has a mana ability. It doesn't use the stack and cannot be responded to. Madness is a triggered ability, and you cast the spell when the trigger resolves. So yes, you'll have the mana from the Apprentice in time to cast the madness spell (also, it's cast from the exiled zone, not the madness zone. There is no madness zone).
