Total fail.



If we win a World Series with him this year, is the contract worth it to you?

Absolutely. But it's freaking stupid to say that one rbi single against his former team is worth the entire contract.

Whole article on the incident. Pretty in-depth.

And Werth's reasoning on the fake ball flip:

Quote
I was going to flip the ball. There was a group of kids. Behind the kids there were these unruly middle-aged men that to me appeared to be snarling. It’s the ninth. Who knows. I kind of got the sense that maybe they were intoxicated. I was going to flip it to the kids, and then I thought, maybe I shouldn’t, because of the people right behind the innocent little children there.

It's his smile that's werth $126M. That's why he keeps it under lock and key.

That's all good, but I take issue with the premise that little children in Philly are "innocent"...they are born evil

More context behind it all - from Werth:

Quote
“Earlier in the game, I flipped a ball in the right field seats to a fan. It bounced off her hands and landed on somebody’s lap. A guy reached over, a Phillies fan, reached over into her lap, grabbed the ball and then threw it back on the field.


Typical filthies, take a ball from someone else and throw it back on the field with intended insult. 

In all, an inspiring and fabulous game from Werth.  Hopefully he and we can stick it to them tonight as well.

I don't think any TV cameras caught it at all.

At least Dmitri Young's smile was worth 20 games to the Nats for pocket change compared to Werth.  :lmao:

Former Pennsylvania Governor Ed Rendell wasn’t buying Werth’s excuse, and provided his own thoughts on the former Phillies right fielder. “Well, it’s a seven letter word Angelo [Cataldi], and the first letter is “A” and the last letter is “E”!,” Rendell told 94WIP’s Angelo Cataldi and The WIP Morning Show on Thursday.

“I mean, Jayson Werth is a complete ass! You’re right, the fans did make his career. We made him a star, and we got him that contract. Players are nuts,” Rendell said.  “The fans are great to Jayson Werth. Even Donovan [McNabb], he had some difficulty with the fans, but he acknowledged how great Eagles fans were when it came to winning or losing games. And this is the same guy, Jayson Werth, compare him to what Cliff Lee said about Philly fans, or what Cole Hamels said, this year, about the Philly fans. It’s nuts! I think he’s got to be a little off kilter.”

After despising him last year, I now love the guy. I'm one of the nerds who proudly wears the Jayson Werth beard tee shirt.
