    Lots of shutouts yesterday. Including one that was the Platonic Ideal of a baseball game. At least if you have taste and stuff.

  14. Jayson Werth says “there’s nothing harder in the galaxy” than hitting

    Mar 20, 2014, 8:20 AM EST

    Jayson Werth Getty

    Jayson Werth is an interesting guy. Not wired quite like most ballplayers. You get the sense that there’s a lot going on above and behind that beard of his. Wheels are always turning. Because sometimes you get quotes from him which don’t come out of the cliche factory. Take his views on hitting as described…

  15. Jayson Werth is a fan of the Nationals’ plan to be more aggressive on the bases

    Mar 7, 2014, 9:20 PM EST

    Philadelphia Phillies v Washington Nationals

    You might not guess it by looking at him, but Jayson Werth is a very good base runner. The 34-year-old veteran has stolen 37 bases in 43 attempts in three somewhat injury-plagued seasons with the Nationals. In his prime with the Phillies, under the tutelage of first base coach Davey Lopes, Werth stole 60 bases…

  17. Jayson Werth isn’t fond of his 2014 Topps baseball card

    Feb 28, 2014, 10:35 PM EST

    Jayson Werth

    There have been some bad baseball cards in the past. Billy Ripken’s infamous “[Expletive] Face” bat. Jay Johnstone’s umbrella hat. Chuck Finley’s bat/guitar. But at least it was unmistakable who was in it. Jayson Werth isn’t the only visible National in his card in the Topps 2014 set, something he isn’t too happy about, according…

  18. Jayson Werth has a doppelganger in the Olympics

    Has anybody heard from Jayson Werth recently? Either he has taken up skiing under an assumed name in a foreign country or he has a doppelganger. See the resemblance here? You can see many more pictures over at CSNWashington.com. Werth’s doppelganger is Per Spett, a mogul skier from Sweden. The beard is more out of…

  19. Jayson Werth still thinks the Nats were the best team in baseball at the end of last season

    Jan 31, 2014, 3:49 PM EST

    Jayson Werth

    Jayson Werth and a lot of Nats fans were saying this back in September. Werth is still saying it: “But all in all, you look at the way we played coming down the stretch, if we get in the postseason – which we only missed by a couple of games even as bad as we…

  20. Jonathan Papelbon compared the cultures of the Red Sox and Phillies

    Jan 3, 2014, 7:10 PM EST

    Jonathan Papelbon

    Losing never feels good, even if you’re the most well-compensated player at your position. Following the conclusion of the 2011 season, the Phillies signed Jonathan Papelbon to the richest contract ever for a closer — a four-year, $50 million deal with a fifth-year option that can vest at an additional $13 million. Papelbon has generally…

    Nate McLouth won’t have to move far, as Ken Rosenthal of FOXSports.com reports that the former Orioles outfielder has agreed to a two-year deal with the Nationals.

  22. The Rangers are interested in Shin-Soo Choo

    Shin-Soo Choo Getty

    I guess there is at least one team who isn’t scared away from Scott Boras’ claim that Shin-Soo Choo should make more than Jayson Werth: the Texas Rangers. Jon Heyman reports that the Rangers are among the teams looking at Shin-Soo Choo. But even if they’re not scared off by the claim, they’re not paying that…

    Legendary Orioles player Ripken, Jr. listens to tributes prior to unveiling of statue in Baltimore

    A bunch of candidates have interviewed to replace Davey Johnson as Nationals manager, but Adam Kilgore of the Washington Post reported previously that the team has no interest in Dusty Baker and now he says Cal Ripken Jr. “becoming an actual candidate for the job appears to be unrealistic” too. Baker specifically reached out to…

    Shin-Soo Choo Getty

    We’re not ready to fire up the hot stove quite yet, but CBS Sports’ Jon Heyman passes along this interesting nugget on a potential surprise suitor for impending free agent Shin-Soo Choo: The Houston Astros, whose lowest-in-baseball payroll of $25 million or thereabouts was a mere fraction of most teams, may consider making a run…

  25. Jayson Werth, Ryan Zimmerman differ on who should be the next Nats manager

    Oct 11, 2013, 1:31 PM EST

    Legendary Orioles player Ripken, Jr. listens to tributes prior to unveiling of statue in Baltimore

    Thankfully, managers are chosen by a general manager and team owners and stuff and not by player referendum. Because if that were the case, it would be pretty awkward in Nats Land these days.  Sarah Kogod reports that Jayson Werth is pro-Cal Ripken as the next Washington manager while Ryan Zimmerman is behind bench coach…
