Werth kicks ass, is a god, I kneel before his greatness, and even if he's an albatross for the last few years of his contract batting. 050 every season I will not say a bad word about him. Playoffs are hard to get to, harder still to succeed in. Winning this game was the most important win in this city in decades, and if we win tomorrow, god does this win mean the world.
That said, I found this quote by Zimmerman... interesting? To say this crap tonight, after Werth won the game? Umm, it's weird, out of place, unnecessary and kind of hints at something. I'm not sure what that something is, but the point stands.
“I’m so happy for Jayson, for him to have this moment after some of the stuff he went through last year,” said Zimmerman. “He is not a very interactive person with the fans. That’s not a bad thing. But for a fan, that makes it hard to be a fan of him. They don’t get to see all the things he does in here for our team. Now they can see. This is one of the reasons we got this guy.”
Yeah, it's bringing up a negative issue we all were aware of, many have even voiced it on this board, to say that tonight makes that negative moot. But I don't think there was any reason to mention it at all, just reminding folks of something no one cares about after tonight. It's odd Zimmerman said it, bottom line, from my perspective.
