Jayson Werth and Chase Utley Play Late Night Poker

Perhaps this is why Jayson Werth and the Phillies are struggling.

After last night's 8-4 loss (the Phillies' 4th in five games), Jayson Werth and Chase Utley were spotted at the Lumiere Casino in downtown St. Louis playing Blackjack until around 4 AM cst.

Russ Kelly on Twitter mentioned it (@russkelly): Jason Werth and a some other Phaillies are at a St. Louis casino at this hour. Hope they play extra crappy tomorrow.

That tweet was at almost 4 AM central time.

Andrew from St. Louis, who played with the guys, tells us:

I was at Lumiere Casino in Downtown St. Louis on the River Front last night between the hours of 12:30AM-2:00AM (3 AM est). As I saw and noticed it was Werth and Utley that were sitting across the High Limit room at their own Private table when I walked up and they invited me to join the game. Yeah, definitely really cool guys, I felt like one of them the way they interacted with me, even though I was a cards fan. Wishing them best of luck in a sincere way throughout the rest of the season. The money they were playing with wasn't huge, I mean i've seen bigger, but it definitely was a chunk of change… I'd say 8000. Not really drunk, maybe tipsy, but not drunk at all. 

He also mentioned the two were still there when he left (validates the tweet) and that Utley was a lot more friendly and talkative than Werth.

Nice to see the guys hanging with the fans, and we get that tonight's game is not until 8 est, but 4 AM? Come on. The Phils are at a critical point in their season, six games back of the Braves.  Jayson is at a critical point in his career, just three more months to prove his worth for a large contract.  Plus, he has been flat out awful of late.  This can't help.

Maybe a little rest, yo.

Oh yeah, at least this probably negates that whole Werth is sleeping with Utley's wife rumor, don't you think?

    maybe it was GOOD that Werth was out and not stuck in his head psyching himself out about hitting. Maybe Charlie’s not playing him today, either. And he has all day to sleep. If he doesn’t perform, we’ll never hear the end of this, will we? I think it’s good he got out to blow off some steam.

    Between 12:30am and 2:00am is hardly 4:00am, wouldn’t you say?

    I fully agree with the first comment. Let the guy blow off steam and not get worked up over his slump. Maybe he’ll figure out eventially

    seriously dude, let’s just look for anything to pick on Werth about. Let it go already. He can sleep all day if he wants to.

    Honestly, I agree with BirmCori and Brian. Let the guys go do their thing. Obviously the guys were at the casino, but we are pulling facts from a Tweet, let alone from a guy who self reported that he is going to an air guitar contest later. The time is nearly irrelevant. They were there late.
    Also, Babyrn1974, He went 2-3 with a walk. I’d call that a successful game at the plate after the skid he’s been on.
    Anyway, I guess my main point is this. Everyone seems to be nitpicking the guy to hell. I honestly think he deserves some slack since he has been one of a handful of position players (Werth, Victo, Howard, and technically Ibanez, but he really doesn’t count) that is helping to pull this team through a rough stretch…although he hasn’t been much help along the stat line, but he is still swinging the bat and running after balls. Lets stop the finger pointing and such and start to stand behind these players.
    PS – Any report on who’s the better card player? Werth or Utley? haha

    That will teach them to be seen in public and personable. Next time, guys, stay in your hotel room and play card games with teammates. It’s the Gilbert Arenas way to Team Success.

    As long as they are doing things men do, like play poker, and not hanging with hippy faggots, I’ll allow it

    Seriously admin, do you hate Werth? Late night poker is not a source of struggling. Is your site nothing but dirty laundry?

    I find it almost comical that everyone is on Jayson about this (on Twitter anyway) but no one has said a thing about Chase. I don’t care if he isn’t playing. He should be resting as much as he can. I don’t care if they go out and have fun but I can’t believe how in love the fans are with Chase.
    Oh and Chase said ‘fuck’ infront of millions of people at the parade an on TV.Pretty sure his “Boo? Fuck you!” at the 08 AS game was audible also.
    Chase is great and I can’t wait til he is back out there but damn. Get your head out of his ass people.

    Are you people for real? Werth’s slump?? The WHOLE TEAM IS IN A SLUMP. Wow – when is this city going to fess up. Admit it. Stop this juvenile witch hunt for Werth. Nothing going on with this team has anything to do with Werth.
    And btw Chase Utley is injured b/c he made a stupid, unnecessary play on his own. There’s “GOD” for you. Look I love Chase, but really.
    Hey, you should never mention that demented rumor again. It lends it validity when it never should’ve had any. It was an outright lie, started by someone with a beef against either Utley or Werth. The two guys have been friends since Werth got here. The two wives are friends & go to the games together. What part of it EVER seemed real to a rational, thinking mind?
    Werth has always been a kind of quiet guy. Why does he have to be effusive for people to think he’s “friendly”. He’s just more reticent by nature. So what.
    I have to admit it’s interesting that Werth was 2 – 4 last night and the only one who scored for the Phils. Maybe he should stay up until 4 again. BUT . . . then again . . . it seems the Phila fans will be getting their way. A trade seems imminent. You won’t have Werth to beat up on by the end of the week. It makes me sick to think about it. I’m embarrassed by the treatment he’s gotten and the team will regret it.

    An interview with Chase in the Philadelphia Magazine Chase said Werth could beat him in poker. Hey, I am a Philly fan who will follow Werth where ever he goes. i think he has tons of talent. Who could live the life of a baseball player without some evenings out. Get over it.

    Big JW fan….gonna be sad this week when he gets traded, just hope we get some “Werth” for him. Brown is gonna be a great replacement, but I would like him to replace Raul when he retires. Werth should have gotten a contract instead of Shane. Unfortunately, Shane has no value on any other team so he can’t be traded….he may be one of the dumbest players ever to put on a uniform. A 5 tool player who uses about 2 of his tools.
