In the bottom of the third inning, Washington Nationals’ right fielder Jayson Werth was settling under a Chase Utley jam shot fly ball with the sun impairing his vision. As the ball descended and he stuck his glove in the air, there was no permanent baseball-leather reunion. Instead, Werth’s technique-saavy right hand, which was just next to his glove, caught the ball. So, to recap, that would be a giant fly ball unintentionally caught by Werth’s gloveless right hand. A tip of the cap to you, sir. Check out the play, after the jump.
When the Philadelphia Phillies allowed outfielder Jayson Werth to sign with the Washington Nationals, ostensibly over money concerns, only to sign pitcher Cliff Lee to a lucrative deal shortly thereafter, many wondered: what did Werth think of that? One Youtube user took a stab.
The Red Sox are signing Carl Crawford away from the Rays for huge money (7 years, $142 million). The Nationals are signing the other top free agent outfielder, Jayson Werth, for similar money. Why are the Red Sox garnering more praise? Well, because they made the better deal.
After signing former Phillies outfielder Jayson Werth to a 7-year contract worth $126 million, many in the baseball world think that Nationals GM Mike Rizzo is taking up residence in Crazytown.
Adrian Gonzalez appears to be off to Boston in a trade for a bunch of prospects that only baseball geeks would know…and SI’s Jon Heyman plays with the hearts of Red Sox fans in reporting that the deal was off and on again.
