Werth What Exactly ?

Phillies Outside

werth, phillies, image, philliesoutside, flyball, worthless, werthless, Jayson WerthIt’s
starting to look like Jayson Werth maybe more like his look-a-like character
Edge than just a passing resemblance of features. The ongoing media focus on his
pending free agency this off-season maybe turning Werth into the ‘good guy, bad
guy’ characters that Edge is known for in the WWE.

The current rumors have Werth now looking for a new agent since the old one
was unable to successfully negotiate some closure with the Phillies for a
continued relationship past this season. I think the Phillies have made it clear
that there is almost zero chance that Werth will be back next year, they don’t
want to ante up what he and others believe he can demand and I don’t think the
Phillies want to make any commitment to tenure when they have Brown and Mayberry
for a lot less money and a lot less hassle.

There are apparent questions surrounding Werth, with him not having received
an offer of love from the Phillies, has he been trying to make a point by not
being all he can be as a baseball player for a contending team. Since the All
Start Break we have seen Werth make base running mistakes rarely seen in ‘single
A’ baseball, we have seen him make bad routes in the outfield and miss catches,
and of course as every ‘advance scout’ knows when Werth is hitting 5th behind
Howard, you can safely walk Howard because you know Werth is not hitting with

Is he doing this to make a point and stick it to the Phillies for not showing
him the same love they showed Victorino or is he just proving previous reports
right that he really isn’t an everyday player.

Where will Werth be next year, any guess is pure speculation, so I would have
to speculate at sCrUBs, LOLstros, or even the Mariners.

Useless stats 101 – Shane Victorino added to the quadruple double
stats this season with his 10th triple in Florida.

    It’s too bad we don’t have a derogatory pet name for the M’s, or that sentence would be bonafide bad***.

    Over – Rated! Clap Clap Clap-Clap-Clap. They’d be smart not to resign him. But that’s just me.

    That same thought has crossed my mind too. But if he is doggin’ it, he is only hurting himself in the end. If teams pay attention to his #’s with RISP, he is “Werth” a lot less than they probably thought.

    Jeff – Your the guy to come up with the name….

    Mike – and i thought it was just me

    Jenn – It surprising what an agent will convince so guys to do, maybe a new agent is what he needs..
