Jayson Werth Signs With the Nationals: 7 Years, $126 Million

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]

Because you want to see it first!
