Philadelphia Phillies: Why They Were Right Not to Re-Sign Jayson Werth

Well, the news has broken that Jayson Werth is officially a Washington National, reaching a seven year, $126 million deal. 

As a Phillies fan, I was holding out hope that Werth would be in a Phillies uniform next season, but after looking at that deal, I am very happy the Phillies did not make such a drastic mistake and pay that much money for Werth. 

The Nationals tied themselves down to a player who will be 38 years old when this contract expires and who has never shown he can be the star player by himself.

Good luck to Werth. I hope he does well, but I have some doubts. 

Join me as I show you why not signing Werth was the best move the Phillies could have made.
