naaah. If this contract is correct, its so bad that the Yankees or the Sox are going to have to absorb it in a year or three.

According to ESPN's Buster Olney, Jayson Werth's seven-year, $126 million deal with the Nationals is being felt as an "8.0 earthquake" across baseball, and quickly reshaping the market for both Carl Crawford and Adrian Gonzalez.

As a Werth owner, I'm pissed. 2010 /w Philly (5x5): 106-27-85-13-.296

His production is not going to be close to what it was in Philly. Larger park means less HR. Worse lineup behind
him means less R (especially runs). May steal more bags? Not sure how often the Nats run their guys. I think the AVG was going to go down regardless..

I'm thinking 80-22-90-13-.280 for 2010. He should have some talent in front of him. Not sure who is hitting behind him though.

On a side note, good for Werth. This is one of the biggest overpays in baseball history IMO. I would have expected this from a bigger money team, but the Nats offering this deal blows my mind.

great line from an angels blog.

Remember a year ago when people were talking about how maybe Scott Boras was losing his luster? A client or two had dropped him, Johnny Damon had gotten a terrible deal, etc.?

Yeah, shut it.

The greatest trick the devil ever pulled was convincing the world to give Jayson Werth seven years and $126 million

Yup. If I'm Crawford I'm personally calling the Nats F.O. and thanking them.
