Everyone seems to have differing opinions on Werth’s departure. They might be glad he got paid, hate him for turning his back on the Phillies, understand why he went elsewhere but bash him because he signed with a non-contender and so on. Maybe he went to
Washington because he realized he would always be a supporting character here in . Utley, Hamels and Howard won the World Series. He was a supporting character. So Philadelphia gives him the chance to be “The Guy” along with Ryan Zimmerman that they will build around. I don’t fault him. No one but Werth knows exactly why he left, but I can’t condemn the guy. I’d have probably done the same. Washington
See ya at the ball…….Oh wait, I only covered the signing there’s more.
