Sure, writing about baseball for a living is great, but for a beat reporter having to ask players for updates on their injuries every day isn’t quite as fun, especially when they react like Jayson Werth did this morning:
Asked Jayson Werth how his back felt. “I don’t care,” he said. Then he walked away. I still think it’s not a big deal.

Imagine that interaction taking place in any other situation. Good times! (In fairness, Adam Kilgore of the Washington Post later wrote that he’s “never had a problem with Werth” and “many clam up on injuries.”
Oh, and shortly after that lovely exchange the Nationals announced that Werth would be sitting out his second straight day of workouts because of the injury.
