Those Nutty Nats + poll



So the Nats just signed right fielder Jayson Werth to a seven year, $126 million deal?  This after letting a younger and more accomplished Adam Dunn walk away to a White Sox offer of four years and $56 million?  I just have to ask myself, what do the Nats see in Werth that they did not see in Adam Dunn?  It could not have been the need to fill a defensive position as the Nats had some serviceable players in right field.  Now they seem to have an overload there.  Oddly they still have a gaping hole at first base.  This is the type of deal that will keep the nats buried in the NL East for years to come.

 

Now the Nats are talking about having to move Josh Willingham via trade which will give them a very average outfield, even with the addition of Werth. 

 

A look at Jayson Werth shows he has never had a 100+ rbi season and has just one 100+ runs scored season.  I know, those are team dependent- but hell he played for the Phillies!  On the plus side though, Werth hit 36 homers in '09 and led the NL in doubles in 2010.   Still though, Werth is not a franchise type player.  He sure as heck is not worth two Adam Dunns.
