Plus, the Citi woes are completely overblown so I think that Bay still has a great chance at a 30 HR, 15 SB season. Werth has been injury prone for the majority of his career which helps explains why he is a late bloomer.
FWIW, the perceived injury proneness of Werth was derived from a wrist injury (a HBP) that didn't quite recover as expected (back in his Dodger days). In Philly, he platooned with Geoff Jenkins for a while, but prorate 2008 on split time and you basically had the kind of season Werth enjoyed in '09. Other than that, I think Werth is a good bet for 30/20 and a .270 average.
