DC Werth

News Item: Nationals sign Jayson Werth for 7 years, $126 million

The Phils are going to miss Werth, but that contract is completely insane, in terms of both money and years, and the Phils would've been nuts to match/overbid it. I bet the Nats will be trying to trade him by 2012 or 2013 at the latest.

Remember the nutty contract Aaron Rowand got to leave the Phillies? Werth signed for more than twice as much. Guess that means the Nats will win the World Series in 2015 with Werth not in the lineup.
