Jayson Werth – By the Numbers

Jayson Werth can afford to buy the numbers

While we were all following the on again, off again, on again Adrian Gonzalez/Red Sox adventure yesterday, most of us were stunned when we learned that Jayson Werth agreed (now that word is an understatement) to a $126 million, seven-year contract with the Washington Nationals. The 31-year-old right fielder hit .296 this past season for the Phillies leading the NL with 46 doubles, and slamming 27 homers and 85 RBIs.
