DateQuestionAnswer
2014-03-14 09:00:00 (link to chat)Made a bit of a blockbuster in a 10-team dynasty league. Traded Bryce Harper, Jayson Werth, David Robertson, Glen Perkins, Zach Greinke, plus prospects (farm roster) Joey Gallo and Eddie Butler. Got back Ryan Braun, Carlos Gomez, Homer Bailey, and prospects Xander Bogaerts and Billy Hamilton. I like the trade for me as I can play Xander and Billy right away, but I have my concerns over Harper breaking out. What do you think?
(Sara from Tacoma)
Hi Sara:

Wow, that is a blockbuster! In a league that size, I like that trade for you in the here and now. You got four potential impact players and a strong pitcher in Bailey for two potential impact guys in Harper and Werth with two closers and Greinke. A lot depends on what happens with Gallo and Butler, but if you're playing for this year (and flags fly forever, as we like to say around here) you did well. (Mike Gianella)
2011-12-20 13:00:00 (link to chat)Did the Rangers really screw up by not trading one of Salty, Ramirez and Teagarden when their values were all high?
(rwinter from Boston)
In the sense that they didn’t trade prospects who flopped, sure. You could say that about every team and every prospect who flopped. Did the Angels err in not trading Brandon Wood when he was a top-10 prospect? In retrospect, of course, but there was no way of knowing that.

The fact that all three of those players flopped in their own ways supports the decision to keep all of them, though, instead of treating them as depth. Catchers have a brutal attrition rate. Baseball America’s top 100 in 2000 included six catchers: Eric Munson, Ben Petrick, Matt LeCroy, Jayson Werth (Orioles), Steve Lomasney, Ryan Christianson. In 2001: Joe Lawrence, Dane Sardinha, Brandon Inge, J.R. House. In 2002: Mauer, Josh Phelps, House, John Buck, Werth (Blue Jays), Victor Martinez. In 2003: Mauer, Martinez, Jeff Mathis, Justin Huber, Buck.

In 2007, when the Rangers had to make this decision, Kevin Goldstein ranked the catchers in the minors. He named 17 players. These are the 17:

Jeff Clement
Bryan Anderson
J.R. Towles
Teagarden
Hank Conger
John Jaso
Ramirez
Nick Hundley
Tony Recker
Jesus Montero
Brett Hayes
Francisco Hernandez
Lou Palmisano
Landon Powell
Shawn Riggans
Jamie Skelton
Brian Jeroloman

Out of those 17, there are basically one and a half every day catchers, maaaaaaybe another one in Hank Conger, and a DH. We thought the Rangers had three catchers, plus Gerald Laird. In fact, they had Gerald Laird.

Also:
2007 Baseball Prospectus Annual: “When Teagarden is behind the dish, he’s one of the top defensive catchers around. If he can stay there, he’s Mickey Tettleton with defensive chops.”
2008 Baseball Prospectus Annual: “If you want to get really dreamy and optimistic, think Mickey Tettleton with Gold Glove-level skills, and you get the picture.”

This is why comps are the best/worst. (Sam Miller)
2011-12-20 13:00:00 (link to chat)Any chance the Angels trade Ervin Santana for say, Adam Dunn or Jayson Werth? It's been awhile since a bad trade. - signed giddy Rangers fan
(@SDIdan from Colorado)
Almost every bad deal you could imagine the Angels making a year ago would be unimaginable now. It's just such a different front office now. They'll probably end up making a whole new kind of bad move, eventually. But it's sort of a lousy time to root for the Angels to do stupid things. Sorry. (Sam Miller)
2011-12-14 13:00:00 (link to chat)Is there any team in the NL setup better than the Nationals over the next few years? They have few payroll commitments (besides Jayson Werth) and seemingly a ton of money in the bank, a bunch of potential stars in their farm system, and an improving group of current MLB players.
(Bret from Toronto)
No. They are set up for something legit. The Nationals are going to be real. (Jason Parks)
2011-08-16 17:00:00 (link to chat)I'm in a keeper league, and I was just offered Jayson Werth for Adam Dunn. Should I accept the deal?
(Rachel from Las Vegas)
I'd take my ex-wife in a deal where I was giving up Adam Dunn. There are no signs of life there (Jason Collette)
2011-07-13 12:30:00 (link to chat)Jose Bautista is on pace for an absolute monster year, with 2 years of elite production, what kind of Free Agent deal would he be have been in store for at the end of the year?
(Landon from CA)
The Blue Jays took a gamble by extending Bautista on the basis of one breakout year, but it's safe to say that they saved themselves some cash. Five years, $65 million looks like a real bargain when you consider that Bautista on the free-agent market might be looking at Jayson Werth money. (Ben Lindbergh)

Over, but not by much. I think they were over their heads last year, and while Lee is nice, the lineup wasn't that great in 2010 and now is minus Jayson Werth. (Marc Normandin)
2010-12-20 13:00:00 (link to chat)Was I a bigger loss for the Phillies than Jayson Werth?
(Yohan Flande from Atlanta)
Without question. I mean Werth could hit home runs, but Flande. I mean, what can you say about losing Flande other than, boy I hope he doesn't get called in for the Braves with the division on the line. (Eric Seidman)
2010-11-11 13:00:00 (link to chat)Is it a mistake for the Phillies not to re-sign Jayson Werth?
(philliesphan from philly)
I'm not sure yet. I have definitely found evidence that re-signed players do better than other FA, and I think that's because they know something about the health and value of their players. The issue is where to put Dom Brown, but it might not be terrible to give him a little more AAA seasoning and go with last year's outfield. The real question is the money. They already are going to have a payroll over $150MM next year-- that's a lot, and I'm not sure investing any more is necessarily profitable. I have a suspicion that when they traded for Roy Oswalt, they decided that Werth + Happ < Brown + Oswalt for 2011. Seems about right. (Matt Swartz)
2010-11-02 13:00:00 (link to chat)Hi Eric, thanks for the chat. Do you think the Angels would be better off signing Carl Crawford or Jayson Werth? Crawford is obviously younger, more versatile offensively, and pretty extraordinary defensively, but Werth has better power, OBP, and will presumably cost less. Thanks!
(Dennis from LA)
I would go for Werth, simply because the thought of putting a bopper like him in a lineup like theirs could really go a long way towards helping them compete for the division. I like Crawford and consider him deserving of whatever deal he is going to get, but I feel like the Angels need a little more thump in their lineup, which Werth is much more suited to provide. Then again, a Bourjos-Crawford-Hunter outfield could be a three-headed defensive monster. If the money is in the same range for both, I'd lean towards Werth. (Eric Seidman)
2010-11-02 13:00:00 (link to chat)Can you name the top 3 free agents you feel the Phils are most interested in and the percentage chance that we will see them in red pinstripes come April?
(John Doggit from Washington D.C.)
I really, truly, do not see the Phillies making any big acquisitions. If they had the money to make a big move, they would re-sign Jayson Werth or make a push for Cliff Lee, neither of which I expect to happen. They have a lot of money committed to 16 players and need another nine to field a team. I can see them pushing hard to re-sign Jose Contreras, and given his friendship with Danys Baez and his experience this season, I can see Contreras staying put.

But they are set at every position in the starting lineup and their bench is essentially set as well. It would be interesting to go for a better starter than Kyle Kendrick to round out the rotation, like a Jake Westbrook-type, but they seem content on letting Kendrick and Vance Worley compete for that last spot.

I think this is going to be the first year in what seems like a while where the Phillies don't make any significant moves. (Eric Seidman)
2010-10-14 13:00:00 (link to chat)Rumor is the Red Sox open up the vault for Crawford. Does that make sense, as the Monster means he has that much less room to cover LF, with his top-flight defense thus being less valuable in Boston than elsewhere?
(DrManhattan from NYC)
The Red Sox won't sign him for seven years, which seems to be the number everyone is repeating. They will be in on Jayson Werth though, since he can be signed for five years in what will probably turn out out to be the 2011 equivalent of a J.D. Drew contract.

It is an easy left field to play in the sense that there is less room to cover, but you still have 81 road games to play, and just as important as his speed and range are his defensive instincts. I would expect him to be able to cut off a lot of shallow outfield singles and turn them into outs if he played in Fenway. There are ways to use the lack of area to cover to your advantage with his skillset--even Manny Ramirez used to be able to rob people of singles or hold them to them. (Marc Normandin)
2010-10-12 12:00:00 (link to chat)Best (worst) baseball beard: Jim Kern, Jayson Werth, Brian Wilson, Al Hrabosky, other
(Beards 'R Us from USA)
Kern had the barely visible mustache, which is a little weird I think. Werth's is great but I think he makes the goatee a little too prominent. The Mad Hungarian gets big style points, but his style has gone out of fashion. I think Bruce Sutter's beard was best. (Tommy Bennett)
2010-10-25 13:00:00 (link to chat)The Rangers exposed a lot of the Yankees' problems (shaky rotation, declining hitters showing their age)--with the sample size including their terrible September, how deep do you think the Yankees' problems are? What would you prioritize if you were Brian Cashman? Would love to hear your insights.
(Eli from Brooklyn)
Cliff Lee's the obvious good idea, and one that Cashman should go for, as well as retaining Kerry Wood. The Nick Johnson signing was a good idea gone wrong, so pursuing a top bat makes sense. The problem is sorting out what kind of bat, and here I think the Yankees could use that sort of hard-hit balls-in-play terror to provide a nice alternating note in a lineup that provides plenty of baserunners. So, not Adam Dunn, but maybe Jayson Werth, while rotating everyone through the DH slot--Swisher, Posada, Werth, Granderson, Gardner--instead of signing a DH-only type of guy. (Christina Kahrl)
2010-10-25 13:00:00 (link to chat)Hi Christina. Thanks for the chat. I have to say, the chats are one of my favorite aspects of BP. Keep 'em coming, please! On to my question: What do you think are the chances of Jayson Werth going back to Philadelphia (I'm thinking somewhere between 0% and -10%) and where do you see him ending up if not in the City of Brotherly Love and Santa Clause Hatred?
(mattymatty2000 from Portland, OR)
Glad to hear it, because there are times where I know we've worried about being too aggressive in our chat schedule--if folks want them once a week, twice a week, or whatever, we want to hear it, because we aim to please.

As for Werth, yeah, I'm thinking 0% as far as his chances of calling the Quaker state home next season. As for where he heads, I think the Yankees make all sorts of sense, but I could also see the Angels making a play. (Christina Kahrl)
2010-10-25 13:00:00 (link to chat)Loving the BP Universe this postseason CK. Y'all are doing a great job, and following each game on Twitter has been a blast. What do we do in cincy to cement the gains we've made and repeat in the postseason?
(Scartore from The Queen City)
The more I think about it, the more I think dealing from depth to get Greinke would be one worthwhile move. The other, non-mutually-dependent move is getting in on one of the real boppers in the outfield--thank you, Jonny Gomes, here's a fruit basket, but we need more. If that's going nuts for Carl Crawford, that works for me, pace Jayson Werth. Even a one-plus-option deal for His Mannyness would be interesting--if Dusty's handled Barry Bonds, he ought to be up for that particular challenge as well. (Christina Kahrl)
2010-10-07 13:00:00 (link to chat)With all of the rumors, what big fish do the Angels land on the open market?
(Jerry from California)
Arte Moreno is going to put on a full-court press. They are going to be big players for Carl Crawford and will be in on Jayson Werth, too. I have a gut feeling they'll end up with Werth for sure. Even though he's from the Midwest, he strikes me as a SoCal kind of guy. (John Perrotto)
2010-09-21 13:00:00 (link to chat)Red Sox keep coming up in Jayson Werth rumors if they can't resign Beltre. How are the two connected? Don't Werth and Drew play the same position, and can the Red Sox really have Youkilis and Werth's beard in the same lineup?
(mkizner from Boston)
I kind of wish Werth was a free agent the year Drew's contract ran out, because he would slot in basically as a replacement for him on a production level. I would prefer to sign Beltre though, honestly. I hope Youkilis and Werth becomes best friends and we get to see their beards in buddy comedy situations that they will air during rain delays on NESN. (Marc Normandin)
2010-09-21 13:00:00 (link to chat)Shouldn't a team that has sold out the entire season have at least tried to extend Jayson Werth for 2 years? This isn't Pat Burrell they're talking about letting go. Are the Phillies really going to let Werth go because they committed to Ibanez two years ago? That doesn't sound like a team that brought in Roy Oswalt.
(e from lawrenceville)
Let's remember they brought in Roy Oswalt to cover up for the ridiculous Cliff Lee trade. Stealing a player from Houston isn't exactly something to be proud of, and when you have to resort to that because you screwed up first...

Jayson Werth hired Boras, so he's ready to get his Big Free Agent Deal. Two years isn't going to cut it. The Phillies should be making a play for him, but they decided to take care of Ryan Howard's extension first. Since it was so time sensitive, and all. (Marc Normandin)
2010-09-13 13:00:00 (link to chat)If you were the Angels, which free agent outfielder would you target this winter, Carl Crawford or Jayson Werth?

Crawford, because he's three years younger and doesn't wear the pelt of a dead animal on his face. (Jay Jaffe)
2010-07-22 13:00:00 (link to chat)Can you elaborate on what is driving the Jayson Werth trade rumors? Are the Phillies just that disappointed with how he has played this year, or is this in some ways an admission they won't be there in the end this year and that they have no intentions of signing Wurth to a long-term extension?
(OTSgamer from Dallas, TX)
Part of it is that there are a lot of reports that he has a truly bad attitude. So it's:

Column A Column B
Bad attitude .305 TAv

I think they still hope to contend, but I do think Dom Brown's hot play has forced their hand a little bit. I am not sure they're going to trade Werth unless they can get something close to fair value, or at least something in excess of the value of the draft pick compensation they would get if he walked at year's end. (Tommy Bennett)
2010-07-09 13:00:00 (link to chat)Do you think that any of the Jayson Werth rumors involving teammates wives are true? All over the internet today.
(TMZ from Philly)
I was going to call Delonte West later to see how he felt about the issue. No comment as of now though! (Marc Normandin)
2010-05-25 13:00:00 (link to chat)Have you watched Jayson Werth hit a baseball? The guy is a beast and the way he squares a ball is downright dangerous at times. He almost took Dice-K's head off the other day.
(Ira from Dallas)
I've been saying for two years he's the most underrated player in baseball but I think we'll see that he's not underrated by baseball people if he gets to the open market in the offseason. He's going to make a lot of money. (John Perrotto)
2010-03-23 16:30:00 (link to chat)Carl Crawford or Jayson Werth?
(jschmeagol from hyattsville, md)
I guess you have to go with Crawford. Werth is particularly valuable to the Phillies because he's right-handed in a park that's got a lopsided HR park factor towards easy LF homers, but he's not the defender Crawford is. Werth also apparently got a lot of just-enough HR according to Greg the Hit-Tracker guy, and that's apparently indicative that he'll regress a little HR wise. Both are still great players and all-star talent. (Matt Swartz)
2010-03-15 16:00:00 (link to chat)Any big 2011 free agents that you particularly like? Crawford, CLee, Webb, DLee? Who should I hope my team signs. These days it seems like a big contract is almost always a bad deal. Holliday, Bay,
(Ron Lewis from Atl)
Well let’s see here. There’s this guy named Mauer who looks pretty good as a free agent. (Oh, I know, the Twins are probably going to sign him. Other names that I would love to have on my favorite team: Victor Martinez, Adam Dunn, Jayson Werth, and maybe a guy like Wilson Betemit. The big stars in position players mostly have options or are likely to be signed before they get to free agency. The free agent crop next year, isn’t a place to find game changers, but there are some good, solid players in that bunch. On the pitching side, CLee and BWebb are welcome in my clubhouse any day of the week. Preferably, every fifth day. I also still believe in Matt Capps, and he’ll be available to the highest bidder. (Russell A. Carleton)
2010-03-04 13:00:00 (link to chat)RE: Jayson Werth. Does he still look like the wrestler Edge? Back when he was rocking the long hair and the trim beard the resemblance was uncanny. We kept wanting him to spear the catcher whenever there was a play at the plate.
(Rob from Brighton, MA)
As far as I know he does. I was talking about that during the playoffs last year on Twitter. I'm pretty positive it's the same person, ages and schedules be damned. (Marc Normandin)
2010-01-21 13:00:00 (link to chat)Heyward or Upton? Which player will history call the better player?
(Bubba Brown from Roy, UT)
Which Upton? I'm assuming you mean Justin, aka, Ken Griffey Jr. II. This is actually a really great question. I'm going to send it to our e-mail list now. I'm team Upton though, I'm pretty positive he's capable of being The Best Player in Baseball during his peak.

As an aside, Jason Heyward's name should be Jayson Heyward. I naturally want to type that because of the y in his last name, and I think it balances much better. Let's steal Jayson Werth's pointless y and give it to Heyward. (Marc Normandin)
2010-01-12 18:30:00 (link to chat)Wondering what you think of Jayson Werth for 2010 and the next few years - yes, this is a thinly veiled keeper question. Can he keep it up or is he a late bloomer/short peak candidate?
(Rob from Alaska)
Werth has the type of skill-set that should still be very effective even when declining. He's led MLB in P/PA the last two years and is the only player over the last two seasons with 60+ home runs to also steal 40+ bases. He's no spring chicken, but factor in his solid defense and ability to fill in should injuries to centerfielders arise, he's the type of outfielder, unlike Bay, who is werth (get it!?) a 4-yr/$65 mil deal. (Eric Seidman)
2009-10-28 14:00:00 (link to chat)Does anyone ever talk about the ex-Dodgers factor the way Mike Royko would about the ex-Cub factor?
(Christina Kahrl from BP Volcano Hideout)
Ah, Royko, my introduction to the Op-Ed page. I don't think anyone talks about the ex-Dodger factor *as a hazard* the way they do about ex-Cubs. Let's face it, the defending champs are living proof that there's no real curse there, as Shane Victorino, Jayson Werth and Davey Lopes all had ties to the Dodger org. This year Pedro Martinez and Chan Ho Park have been added to the equation.

Some painful memories for Dodger fans there, and I'm not talking about the NLCS, either. (Jay Jaffe)
2009-10-13 14:00:00 (link to chat)A lot is said of hitter's going to Philly and getting better because of the park and potent lineup, but isn't that doing a disservice to Charlie and Milt. They have taken and converted more reclamation project hitters then any team I can think of.
(faithdies from DE)
Indeed. Jayson Werth was a stathead fave for years, going back to his days behind the plate. Shane Victorino's someone they should feel good about as well. They found a way to use Greg Dobbs, which might be the first and last time that happens. Manuel's rep with hitters seems well deserved. (Christina Kahrl)
2009-01-29 13:00:00 (link to chat)Could you see Ryan Spilborghs pull a Jayson Werth this yr if he gets 500 AB's?
(MannysBBQ from Pittsburgh)
Eh, that seems kind of high. I think he can be solid though, probably better than we give him credit for because of Coors. But his OBP more so than his power would be his source of value, at least when not above sea level. (Marc Normandin)
2008-11-03 13:30:00 (link to chat)Christina! Thanks, as always, for the chat. How much value should teams place on the defense of their backup catcher? Would it create valuable roster flexibility for a team to have a guy like Ryan Garko or Jayson Werth or Josh Willingham catch one day a week? Or is that just re-arranging the deck chairs? I’m also wondering if this would preserve some of the positional value of prospects who just don’t look like they can catch every day, such as Jeff Clement or Hank Conger.
(Rob from Alaska)
You're talking to somebody who fell in love with everything about catchers back when you had backups like Johnny Wockenfuss and Bill Schroeder, guys who really weren't much behind the plate, but gave you something in the lineup, and who hit well enough to have value DHing or playing some first base. (Naturally, that makes me a Chris Coste fan. Jim Leyritz too, for that matter.) While a guy as big and as fragile as Werth would give me pause, I think it makes plenty of sense in Garko's case. I wonder about Willingham, but in part that's because I sort of fancy the notion that he could grow up to be the next Brian Downing. (Christina Kahrl)
2008-10-21 14:00:00 (link to chat)Steven: when comparing this year's Phillies to the the 1915 NL Pennant-winning Phillies, who plays the Possum Whitted role? It's gotta be Jayson Werth, right?
(Matt from Chicago)
Wow. I'll ask Goldman and let you know. Maybe lining up Goldman to Goldstein chat's back to back was a mistake. That's Goldman, he's the guy who knows about teams in the 1910s and Hitchcock movies of the 40s and has a lot of writing talent. I'm the dork who talks to scouts a lot and talks about things like fringy and pitchability and sometimes turns it in to semi-coherent sentences on the page. (Kevin Goldstein)
2008-07-30 12:30:00 (link to chat)A rumor is that the Rays are looking at Jayson Werth? Would this make sense? Werth is kind of the starting RF now in Philly, with Jenkins struggling. Would this indicate that a Manny trade could be in the works, if they'd flip Werth in another deal, thus clearing some of the log jam in the OF and relegating Jenkins to pinch hitting duties?
(JM from DC)
I don't think the Phillies want to give up Werth at this point. In the winter, perhaps, but not in the middle of a pennant race. (John Perrotto)
2008-07-23 13:00:00 (link to chat)Alright, I need somebody to break this down for me. Why is catcher such a crucial defensive position? I understand why the guy needs a respectable arm so other teams can't run all day, but there are several others on the field that can call a game (Tony Larussa) and there just aren't that many plays for a catcher to make that could go either way. It's fairly rare to have a wild pitch or passed ball, but hardly a game goes by where Jeter doesn't get to a ball that a good SS would get to. I don't have the stats, but a wild pitch/passed ball is like what? every third game? How many of those does pudge stop that Piazza doesn't? Also, it's proven that catching hinders a hitting prospect's development. Why wouldn't somebody like Daric Barton get moved back to catcher when it looks like his bat won't carry at 1st?
(Jed from San Francisco)
There's an interesting argument to be had here. I think teams still place a lot of emphasis on game-calling skill, no matter how much work Keith Woolner does to try and get them off that trail. But it's also a case where ... we've never really had a team say "screw it, we're going to play Jayson Werth behind the plate for a year and see what happens", so those examples might not exist in the dataset. It's as much fear of the unknown as anything, I think. (Nate Silver)
2008-05-01 13:00:00 (link to chat)So Joe. We're a month in, and shockingly, the Mets haven't clinched the East yet. Do the Phillies have a shot at 75 wins this year? They've had their best April in recent memory, and have done so without Rollins and Victorino for the last 3 weeks, and with Ryan Howard looking more and more like dead in the water Mo Vaughn. Is it time to possibly start giving them their respect after basically writing them off before the season even started?
(Ryan from Philly)
And with Chase Utley hitting like Rogers Hornsby, and Pat Burrell and Jayson Werth over their heads. It all counts, Ryan. Romero, Lidge and Durbin have a 32/22 K/BB and a collective ERA under 1.00. The Phillies are 15-13, +11, which is basically the team I thought they were. They'll be in the hunt, and probably fall short when the pitching does. Lovely park, though. (Joe Sheehan)
2008-04-17 13:00:00 (link to chat)Should Victorino be Pipp'd by Werth?
(Jay from Phi Town)
I don't think that's manifestly the case. We have Victorino projected at 279/341/414 against righties, and Werth at 255/357/419, so Werth is giving you a little more with the stick, but might give that back on defense. But I also think Jayson Werth is weerrrr-thy of being a major league regular somewhere, so you can't go too wrong either way. (Nate Silver)

2009-10-15 17:00:002009 NLCS Game One (Phillies/Dodgers)Tynan (Livermore, ME): One of the TBS talking heads just pegged Jayson Werth as "one of the best right fielders in the national league". Is that legit?

Without question, yes. He followed up a .273/.363/.498, 24 HR/20 SB season in 2008 with a .268/.373/.506, 36 HR/20 SB this year. Add in a plus arm, solid range, and a very team-friendly contract and what's not to love? He probably won't be back after 2010 but he is definitely one of the best OF in the NL, let alone RF.

I wanted to ask this last time: Madrid, Spain? The New Madrid Fault? Madrid, New Jersey, just east of Ho Ho Kus? Just wondering.

2008-10-22 16:30:00World Series Game OneRichard (San Diego): Back-up catcher as your DH? When your normal starting catcher is already begging for a late-inning pinch hitter? Reactions?

As John Perroto pointed out in his Unfiltered entry, this isn't exactly uncharted territory for Charlie Manuel. Joe's the one who apparently reserached this on John's behalf: "Manuel left himself without a backup catcher 32 times during the regular season as he pinch hit for Coste 22 times and pinch hit or pinch ran for Ruiz 13 times. While that adds up to 35, three of those games came after the September roster expansion when rookie catcher Lou Marson was also available. "

It's an odd move, nonetheless, particularly because it's compounded by the fact that EITHER player may make an early exit for pinch-hitting/running purposes. If your DH has to take the field and you're stuck batting the pitcher, that's still workable with pinch-hitters and sacrifice bunt attempts. But leaving yourself with, say, Jayson Werth (who was drafted as a catcher, IIRC) behind the plate as an emergency catcher - well, now you've kind of got me rooting for the splatter just to see how it looks. (Jay Jaffe)
2008-10-02 11:00:00Thursday Playoff GamesNice to see Jayson Werth finding as much success as he has this year. I always liked him with the Dodgers and was sorry to see him go after suffering that wrist injury. Good OBP, decent power, good baserunner with some speed, the ability to cover center, lefty masher who's not a total loss vs. righties. That's a tasty package in one ballplayer. (Jay Jaffe)
