If washington wanted to make a REAL splash, they should've gotten crawdaddy.

There should be no question about Werth's production over the last four years. He's averaged 5.2 WAR per 154 games (putting up consistent numbers every year, too) which works out to being worth about $22 million a year in production depending on league standards. He's been absolutely phenomenal and if he were 26 or 27 this would be a lot more justifiable. My criticism is entirely based on the fact that he'll be 32 years old come June and will be 38 when the contract is up.

Can we really include 07 in there? I know he got less at bats and all but wasnt an everyday player. Aside from that agree about league standard comparisons and what the market will bear and all but would stress again how id want to see him doing it for longer and out of that ballpark/lineup.

On the bright side, at least their 1st round pick is protected, philly got hosed a little there (sandwich and 2nd I believe) but thats all out of their control and at least helps the principle of big names signing with bad teams and the drfat pick compensation.
