Jayson Werth: The Phillies outfielder just inked a laughable 7-year, $126 million contract with the Nationals. If you thought the Ryan Howard deal earlier this year was bad, what do you make of the Nationals giving a 31-year-old outfielder $126 million? It’s one thing to put up nice stats surrounded by Rollins, Utley, and Howard … can he do the same surrounded by Dunn and Zimmerman? [ED. Dunn signed with the White Sox this week.] Hopefully, when the young Washington pitching staff is killin’ it in three years, Werth is still worth it. [Wash Post]
Analytics might have come in handy.
They met at the NBA conference Finals.
Third legal incident this calendar year.
It’s been less than a year since Goodell needed to hear from Ray Rice directly.
Rest in peace.
